I just received my new VW T6.1. It is my first transporter and I already love it!
The goal is to sound deaden and isolate the rear, then carpet the sides and ceiling.
The van came with 12mm plywood with some holes in it to secure cargo.
This is not ideal to carpet.
So my plan is to...
did try searching for posts relevant but had no luck (m sure someone who has been around longer will share a link)
I've been watching a lot of videos about carpet lining windows with no seals and this is the route i would prefer, however all the videos i found have a U or J seal on the...
I have been looking at getting my T6.1 kombi interior done (carpet lining) and have seen some good things from Leighton vans. Was wondering if anybody has used then and if they would recommend? Only thing I can see is they don't hide the panel clips, or is that me just being fussy lol?
I have ordered all of the materials to fit my windows and then insulate and carpet my T6 SWB. At the moment it still has the basic ply from when it was a hire van with the box arch covers etc. Can anyone tell me where i can get good quality ply lining from that isnt going to break the banks and...
I've done most of the insulation etc of our Kombi van now and need to bite the bullet and actually carpet line the metalwork.
Only issue is time. Everyone says it's not too hard, just take your time but how much time are we talking here? If I were to strip out the van on a Friday night, would I...
I have a few small areas in the van where the carpet is not stuck down properly. Whats the best method of repairing it please ? I've got some high temperature trim adhesive but i cant use that on small areas as the stuff sprays everywhere, many thanks.
Hello everyone. My name is Lee and I am new to VW. I have just bought T6 2017 LWB and was hoping you could help me.
The van is currently simple kombi with no carpeting and any additional nice stuff, I would like to take it on as a project.
I would like to do sound deadening, thermal isolation...
I’ve searched the forum and scoured the net and can’t for the life of me work out how to remove the plastic trim around the interior door release on the sliding door. I just want to remove the outer plastic to be able to do some neat carpeting.
Someone explain it to me please.
In the heat of Tuesday, I finally grabbed the adhesive and carpet and went for it.
2 stone lighter at the end of the day, but a result.
I then did the other side with the sliding door on Thursday.
I found that side more difficult, but it’s not that hard folks - have a go !
Does anyone know of a way to make the edges of the carpet around the barn doors look neater? I've done the usual draw around the the edge of the white part when the doors are closed so as not get the edges wet. And have glued the stretch carpet on up to the line as neat as I can. I've also seen...
I’ve searched a lot of older posts and they don’t seem to have got much in the way of responses. I’m looking to understand how much a fair price is to insulate, sound proof, and carpet line the rear of a SWB Kombi with some extra lights in the roof panel?
I wonder if those not brave...
As the title says, just finished carpet lining, but I cant seem to refit the tailgate seal over the lip now it has extra thickness of the carpet. Is there a special technique?
I'd hate to trim the carpet back from the edge because the seal gives the best edge, but running out of options..
I’m doing some carpet lining tomorrow and have either foil tape or gaffa tape to cover the round holes to stop dust marking the carpet - which is best to go with the contact adhesive?
Also, there are some wide panel gaps at some of the joints around 8 or 9 mm. Will tape be OK on these? I...
