    I stripped the old burnt stinky carpet off the woodwork from my old van and then covered it in new carpet for my new van! (yet to arrive). My lovely girlfriend also picked up a parcel from the post office for me (again stuff for the van I don't have yet).

    Officially there isn’t one you have to use a T5 one then trim the leading edge where it meets the front wing as the curve of the wing is slightly different
    I’m sure @Fish wont mind sharing a pic of his (carbon dipped) one to show you how it fits on the profile

    You have to trim a T5.1 battery cover to suit T6 headlights. Took me a couple of attempts..

    There are 2 variant.

    Not today but yesterday, a spot of carpeting and carpentry, the floor and bulkhead I rescued from the fire van, had to make a small adjustment to both as new vans a twin slider. Today's work is removal of squinty badges, fit shelving and load up tools for tomorrow

    It's a work van, it needs to earn its keep! Sparkies up north like to travel in style (well this one does)

    I make my lads drive round in Renaults but we are builders and our vans take a beating and are battered by 3 years so not giving them posh exspensive vans.

    Tools loaded, been for a run, no rattles or squeaks, just need to sort the roof and lighting (last van had leds in roof and Tailgate) but that can wait for another weekend! Consuming beer while a chicken is roasting in the BBQ, happy dayz

    Arrived at a job and customer not here, so debadged the rear while waiting, not sure I like it to be honest, at least now I don't have to look at squint badges! Vw sending me a new set anyway, I'll live with it and see if it grows on me.

    I know what you mean. Not sure on this one for my van. Plus I like my all red TDi badge.
