    HI, Everyone. So I decided to try and fit a pop top to my VW T6 myself. Instead of buying a full kit, I was able to find a lid, tent, gas struts, and hinges.

    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 !

    Any specialist tools required for coilover fitting?

    Looking at getting my new Stance Plus Streets fitted soon as I’m about to be placed on furlough leave! My question is - do I need any specialist tools to carry out the swap? Spring compressors I know I need but do I need a ball joint remover? Also, any advice would be appreciated.

    Diy Black Out Screens...

    Hi All, Cant justify the cost of a set of thermal blinds that will only get used once in a blue moon, has anyone made their own? Thinking, some black fabric with bubble wrap inside and magnets to attach? Or are there any cheap 'off the shelf' alternatives? Cheers.
