The Gadd’s VW T5 Kombi Conversion

The Gadd’s VW T5 Kombi Conversion

Hours and hours of studying the NWCC website, Instagram, Facebook and forum thread resulted in combining an exact specification based on elements from various builds that have left the NWCC workshop in previous months. Having wanted to spent the time to ensure that their interior conversion was suited to their requirements the Gadd’s provided NWCC with a list of works outlined in the ‘Client Builds‘ section of the website to confirm exactly what they wanted.

With the Gadd’s purchasing a VW T5 transporter that had been previously partially converted, on arrival at the workshop team NWCC removed all of the previous lining conversion. This was hours of removing the previous lining adhesives / glue and preparing the surfaces ahead of the NWCC lining conversion taking place.

Wanting both a practical yet luxurious interior for the family, the Kombi conversion was the ideal specification for the Gadd’s. To ensure that the vehicle offered multi use, the kombi floor pods and cover shrouds have been fitted in both the second and third row. With the seatbelts located in the second row only, location of the seat within the third row is for stationary purposes only.

With a full leather interior upholstery upgrade completed incorporating the Gadd’s choice of a Bentley double diamond stitched centre, this patterning was reflected within the alcantara headlining. This idea was inspired by the headlining previously completed in Mitch’s VW caddy conversion. Looking further at the options available for the headlining and lighting, the configuration within the Edward’s VW Caravelle Conversion was exactly what the Gadd’s wanted.

Within this build the headlining has been pushed to its limits, a brand new layout incorporating a double row of spot lights, detailed alcantara centrally with the recessed colour changing outer LED lighting around the perimeters of the headlining.

As this vehicle will also be an every day drive, the audio and acoustics were extremely important. The Audison audio package ensures that the Gadd’s have a quality perforce system in their T5. This was a really rewarding build for team NWCC as the Gadd’s even asked for the NWCC logo to be incorporated within their table top to ensure everybody knew who had completed their conversion.
