Hi, I used to have a wrapping company.. Best place to get it is William Smiths.. There the main distributor for vinyl in this country.. U will need 1080 series made by 3M.. Best stuff available and easy to work with..
Hope this helps
Just my two pence but I wouldn’t advise wrapping the roof yourself. It’s a difficult job that requires a high level of skill and experience.
I understand why you might think the quote is stupidly expensive, but the majority of the cost is in the labour time.
Some roofs are cost effective to wrap, but I’m afraid the T5 is not. The multiple channels require a scrutinous cleaning method, and then post heating to over 100 degrees along every channel too. Not to mention the actual laying time, which also requires a specific method of bridging the channels (if you don’t want it to lift).
3M’s 1080 Series was designed for cars, not commercial vehicles (which generally have more recesses), so they released the 1380 Series to allow colour changing of deep and u-shaped channels (it’s more conformable and only requires post hearing to 80 degrees, but has a different installation method again).
Smiths are trade only, 3M understandably don’t want amateurs ‘having a go’ at laying films they’ve heavily invested in, just for them to fail, and then their product is blamed due to incorrect installation.
Paint may be the more cost effective option, but it’s permanent and I’m sure you’ll find a range of different quality and different price points.
Hi everyone. I’m brand new to this. Liked VWs for a long time and always wanted one. Now I’ve found myself lucky enough to own one. I am on the lookout for some 18inch steel wheels for future banding. Can anyone help out where I can buy these at a fair cost. I have located some on 4x4 tyres but...
Hi guys n girls, I'm looking to change my wheels on my t6 Sportline and have a question about some wheels I've seen.

Will these fit??

Hi guys, I’m new to all of this and I’m not a Campervan expert by any stretch of the imagination. Just after an idea of what my dads t4 transporter would be worth. He bought it last year and hasn’t taken it anywhere and has realised he needs something bigger so has bought a larger motorhome...
