    Caravelle Keyed!

    Our Caravelle was keyed down in Bournemouth while we were at the beach. Drivers door and offside electric slider both scratched. I originally thought it was down to the metal but on closer inspection, I dont think it is. Any recommendations on best way to get fixed?

    Scratch... what did you do to remedy yours?

    Afternoon All, Someone, somewhere and somehow has managed to scratch my T6 sliding door. I have no idea how or who. It's white. I've TCUT and polished but it's still visible. I cannot afford to get the door sprayed etc - so how delicate can one be with a touch up pen? My guess is - not very and...

    Sliding door scratch... repair options?

    Hi all, Seems I’ve been victim of a small scratch across the sliding door. Gutted as the paintwork is immaculate (until now). Wondering if anyone has experience of repairs, via VW or others and potential costs? Also considering some decals to hide it, any recommendations? Thanks Matt

    Removing magnetic GB sticker!?

    Hi, Don’t believe I’m really asking this, but we’ve had a GB sticker on the back of our van for just a year - magnetic so it would be easy to remove. I discovered today that the sticker’s backing has fused itself onto the tailgate, so much for it being removable (thanks H***ords :mad:). See...

    T6 Paint scratches really easily

    I’ve got a new VW T6 Caravelle in black and after two washes, one through the drive through and one with a brush and jet wash, it’s covered in small scratches and a couple of big ones. At first I thought it was bad luck and there must have been grit or brake particles on the brush, but now I...

    Scratch Removal

    Annoyingly, some d*ck has scratched my arch when they were trying to park. Initially, it looked really bad but when cleaned it appears the white markings were his paint that has shaved onto my black arch. The scratches seem minimal and confined to just an inch along the arch for maybe 6 inches...

    That'll Polish Out Mate.

    So I've got one or two surface scratches on the van and most people I've spoken to have said they'll polish out. What do I need to polish them out. Can I use T-Cut? I've heard you shouldn't use it on metallic paint. Is that right?

    Handover with sratched paintwork

    Afternoon everyone, after months of waiting I collected my new lwb kombi 150 on friday! I was excited to say the least. Handover was in the pdi centre warehouse which was fairly dark. I got to my in laws house 50miles later and noticed the drivers side and bonnet were covered in tiny scratches...
