This van was brought to us to do some much needed interior updates! A previous owner had made the kitchen units but it was time for a refresh. We started off by moving the battery and split charge system under the drivers seat. Next we fitted a swivel to the double passenger seat.
The original units were removed and replaced with gloss white units! A smaller kitchen unit with soft close draws was installed, with low profile rear units. These were chosen so when a cushion is added, it will create a full width bed whilst maximising storage options!
To finish the work we removed the old curtains and fitted stunning VanShades thermal blinds!
We love an all black van! This one received a gentle tap from the lowering stick, now running 50mm lower on H&R springs. Totally changed the look and drive of the van without compromising functionality or comfort. We also had the tracking done to ensure everything is straight and true.
We had this T5.1 LWB in to add a single, removable, kombi rear seat. We used 100% genuine parts for all of the install to ensure safety was at the forefront of the conversion. We used VW factory torque settings for all the bolts and seatbelt. Also, it looks like it was installed from the factory, always important! We chose a T6 seat as this allows the option to fold the seat flat or tilt forwards.
This T5.1 came to us having already been converted, but with no windows in the barn doors. The customer found this to be rather dark and claustrophobic, so we added in 2 barn door windows to let in plenty of light! The privacy tint however keeps things nice and private from the outside.
This T6 Kombi received some lovely upgrades! Top right picture is what we started with! We sound deadened and then insulated the van first, then supplied new ply panels and fully carpet lined the rear of the van. We also covered the roof in a fabric a 99% match to the factory headling!
We also installed flush LED lights in the roof and tailgate, along with switches and USB/12V sockets on either side for when camping.
The seats also received a full reupholster in genuine leather with a 'Tyre Tread' centre pattern. We think the transformation is a strong one!
