    Bloated Black Kombi Build - #vanlife2.0

    Introduction Welcome to my build thread for my new (to me) Deep Pearl Black T6 Kombi. Bloater is a nickname I’ve had since I was a teenager :rolleyes: This is my second Transporter - last one was a Reflex Silver panel van I did Kombi conversion on myself. I had it 2.5 years and in that time...

    Meet Sheldon

    Hi. I started this in earnst at Christmas and well over 300 hours later it's finished and I've loved almost every minute of it! Apart from the roof (Skyline) I’ve done everything myself from scratch. As there are only two of us we don’t need rear travelling seats and having hired a SWB camper we...

    Morning all. Now that I've finally invested in some B14 comfort lows & Rotiform DTM's I thought I'd show her off a bit. I'm really pleased with how she's now looking... More info here:

    Nearly a build thread- It's not the pain that is killing me!

    My lovely new van arrived from @BognorMotors on 1st March and the converters booked the van in for works on 29th March. This followed loads of previously missed conversion slots due to my original vehicle order being expected in January 2021. The plan was always for me to install a load of fancy...

    Ex-Fleet LWB T32 to Camper Conversion

    Wanted to share progress on our family project. Bought an ex-fleet 2016 LWB T32 in December and been converting it over the winter. Judging from the tiny shards of vehicle wrap left on the body work, I think this was a British Gas van in its past life. This is our second home-spun camper...

    Underseat install mk2 roamer

    So I figured out that I'd like to keep track of this as I go along. It's not a full build thread which I will probably tag this into. However I decided when I paid out last year to do a freshen up of my electric install. When I initially did the van last year I ran out of time and the most...

    Hi all - just thought I'd introduce myself as it's likely I'm going to be quite active over next few months! I have owned and converted to camper a t5.1 over the last 5 years. I have just purchased a 2016 150 dsg shuttle with the same intention. Biggest initial problems are going to be getting...

    608AH Lithium Battery Build

    I don't see a lot of lithium battery builds here as most just buy a pre-made lithium battery as i have done in the past, but as i needed more capacity for longer trips i decided to commit on building a bigger battery. In November i ordered my Eve 304Ah Cells, which currently have 320Ah capacity...

    Twin Slider Kombi to Day Van Conversion

So the plan is to; Sound deadening Thermal insulation Carpet lining Add a leisure battery and DC to DC charger Add some electrics in...

    Reflex Silver T28.....First van build

    Just bought my first van. T6 Trendline. It’s a nice clean low miles example that’s just been off fleeted by a local company. Plans are bulkhead out, side windows, insulate and replace the ply then carpet. No conversion as I vary bikes and surfboards regular. Exterior wise it needs lowering and...

    Camperizing a transporter

    Good morning T6 fans. Yesterday I already introduced myself in the presentations section, but I think this thread is better to see the camperization process of our van. It must be said that we are not too skilled with tools, that is why a friend of ours who is dedicated to it is campering it...

    Jimbob76's T6.1 Kombi - a long time in the planning...

    I’ve been reading this forum for a while, and saving up for my new T6.1 Kombi for quite a bit longer. I’m due to collect it next Saturday, so in just 7 days I’ll hopefully fulfil an ambition I’ve had for quite a few years now. Before I start posting on the forum proper, the correct etiquette is...

    Indium Grey 6.1 Ownership Log

    Hi Everyone Thought I’d start a thread for this to keep a track of ownership as much as anything. I’ll unlikely be doing anything too much to the van in the near future, just some basic bits - some of which have already come to fruition, but plans are focused around a usuable daily for me...
