After several years of thinking about it we have finally just taken the plunge and bought a T6 LWB highline DSG in indium grey.
We are booked in for Skyline Aurora pop top in March and deliberating on canvas colour choice.
I quite fancy orange canvas with reupholstered orange/tan...
I am now at the point where I am going to get my front seats re trimmed. I have been repeatedly looking through the leather seats thread. Loads of awesome seats there and great inspiration.
However I am struggling to choose the materials to use.
My thoughts are leather/alcantara as this gives...
I have my original factory heated seats which i had re trimmed by vision upholstery complete with Recaro Back foams. They have been trimmed in Black Nappa leather with Alcantara backs and base seat. stitching and logo in red.
The passenger seat has not been used really, its brand new. drivers...
Does anyone have any experience or an opinion In the leatherette seats supplied in a T6 shuttle? I’m updating my T4 to a T6 and have found a low mileage example with leatherette. Just wondering in its general comfort and durability. Ps I’ll have 4 kids clambering over them.
Need to make up my mind for the covering on my new bed, probably going for a Titan mid mount.
Need some inspriation with the covering material. Im thinking Leather may be hot and cloth may mark?
any experience on this would be welcomed.
Recently had the T6 seats and RIB upholstered by Steve at SGS Styling....
Fair play, He did a fantastic job using a design I found that he had never made before...
Well pleased... They've turned out well... Italian long grain leather with Mid Grey Stitching
So this is my first post and just thought I would show you our little families first ever T6 camper that we collected on Saturday. It was converted by Mikey and Dave at Retrofitted in Bury St Edmunds.
We are chuffed to bits.
We are nearly at the end of the build with this t6.1, and thought we haven’t put any pics up.
This is a fully factory specified 199 4motion, with lots of BMVS options to finish it off. More pics to follow :-)
Just got the van back from upholstery, looks great in black with red double stitching. Having declared that we weren’t going to spend any more money on the van, a little voice next to me on the way home says, wouldn’t it look good with red seat belt ! It wasn’t me gov. . .
Not long since had this fitted. Totally bespoke wheel made for T6 Highline MFSW with paddle shift i.e. it's not a Golf, Passat or other VW wheel altered to make it fit. It doesn't come with the metal Raceline badge at the bottom though. I had that fitted to match my seats.
Hello, a friend of mine has bought a single and double front seat for his T5. They are from a T6 Sportline( the black and red ones ). He is buying a bed from Captains Seats in Melton Mowbray and when he sent photos of his seats to enquire about matching the bed to the seats,they told him that VW...
I have a question regarding Nappa leather seat base.
I have a mark on my front passenger seat base. Is it possible to swap the seat base cover with the captain seat that is in the back ? Does anyone know if they are the same part number ?
Hi everyone. Newby here just trying to get ideas for interior fabric etc. For my new conversion; leather, alcantara or synthetic leather. I’ve heard that leather gets hot in the summer (RIB bed) and that alcantara which is on the other half’s Tiguan is hard to clean. The synthetic stuff seems to...
It's been a while but I'm back on the forum again now...
I've been looking at trading in my Caravelle, currently waiting for a Part Ex quote. I'm thinking about a Highline Kombi base van for a stealth swamper camper build and I'm currently spending far too much time on the...
