    window edge carpet lining

    After getting my rear side windows fitted I'm left with a messy finish around the inside. Other than trying to match the felt is there any better options? Does anyone make surrounds for them?

    Carpet lining trim clip holes: can I use an electric soldering iron in the van?

    Hi folks just wondering if anyone can answer this question- I’m hoping the response will be “go ahead, there are no risks to the van and it’s electrics” LOL! So, carpet lining is going very well, the soldering iron is perfect for burning holes in the carpeted panels but is it ok to use it to...

    Factory panels or new ply

    Hi Guys, 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...

    Anybody used Leighton Vans for carpet lining?

    Hi 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?

    First time carpeting.

    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 !
