    Shuttle Conversion - Asymmetric wheel arch metalwork

    I'm in the process of converting my shuttle and I've removed all of the rear trim and the HVAC. I've had half-height panels cut by Plyworx and I only noticed when fitting them that VW cut out sections of metal around the wheel arch, presumably for the HVAC, resulting in there being nothing to...

    Drilling wheelarch for rivnuts?

    Looking at fitting some rivnuts to the wheel arches for securing some furniture. Rivnuts so furniture is more easily removed when needed. There’s a factory metal plate on the drivers side that means I won’t need to drill through the arch itself. But, the passenger side doesn’t have the same...

    Sliding door table rubbing on wheel arch cover

    I have replaced the sliding door card with a table but I find when the door is fully open, it rubs agains the wheel arch, which incidentally has the Vw wheel arch cover fitted. The door clears the arch until the middle hinge locks the door back as it pulls the door towards the van. If I pull...

    FREE Lots of pre-conversion bits —> panels, steps, fixings, windows, etc - remaining parts are free

    I wanted to deliver my van to the converters as an empty metal box, so everything came out! I’m not really sure the value of this stuff. I mostly hope it can be useful to someone, but also a few quid back to towards the van (or a Five Guys) would be great. These came out of my LWB ’67 plate...

    Wheelarch tank

    I am just about to order a 24 litre wheelarch tank but thought that I would ask if anyone else has fitted one to see if there are any snags that I haven't considered before I press the button. The bit that rests on the floor is 180 mm and it looks like it could be quite a tight fit between the...

    Has anyone got pics of a battered wheel arch?

    Hi all, just wondering if anyone has any pics of their wheel arches that have been squashed down to accommodate their Cali seat. At the moment I can lift the bum seat to slide back but would prefer to do this without lifting. Any help as always is appreciated.

    Wheel-Arch Carpeting

    Hi guys, it's my first time carpeting the inside of a van. My local van conversion specialist advised that I shouldn't bother sound deadening my wheel arches and just carpet them instead, is this sound advice? Surely the clips and joints would be visable through the carpet if I dont. Please advise.

    Wheel-arch - Sound-Deadening internally or externally?

    While fitting wheel spacers (25mm) this weekend, I took the opportunity to also remove the wheel arch liners and stick Silent Coat to the wheel arches for improved sound proofing. After doing so, I then became concerned that I have perhaps introduced a moisture trap to the underside of my van...

    Carpet Lining Kit from MVM - arches??

    Hi, My lining carpet has arrived from Mega Van Mats today, I've read the guide but I can't tell whether it is recommending to do the wheel arches as part of the one piece used for the side, or to do it with a separate piece. Any suggestions?

    Wheel-Arch: Internal Boxing-Off

    Hey, does anyone know where you can buy the interior wheel arch boxes for a T6 Kombi with twin sliding doors? Vanstlye do them but only for single sliders and there isn't enough room in between the cover and the wheel arch to apply silent coat and foam. Ideally what I want to do is rip the...
