Another bumper issue this month, firstly Simon Earp of West Coast Custom Vans shows us his latest bus, a Candy white T6 Kombi Highline, it was great when it left the factory, it’s even better now. Next up, Jason Cocking’s T4 was built to his exacting standards and designs and that’s without mentioning his cool half Polo trailer. Our third feature belongs to Stephen Marshall, his black T5 called Venom is a van of great beauty and the stuff of nightmares if your at all OCD about keeping it clean. Fourth out of the box is Zak Shuker’s stunning grey Caddy, it’s a vehicle built for two separate purposes, one is to haul his mountain bikes the other is to look impossibly cool doing so. Our fifth feature and final…

T6.1 First Official Pictures After quite a few teasers floating around on social media, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles UK came clean recently and released the first “official” images of the new T6.1. When we put the pictures up on Facebook one wag asked (stand up Lee Norris), “Isn’t it technically a T5.3?” We get his point, but VW were very keen to point out the technological advances of the new model. Dr Thomas Sedran, chairman of the management board, announced on its unveiling, “The new T6.1 is the vehicle for the here and now. We have taken a proven vehicle and updated its assistance and infotainment systems, and connectivity. The hydraulic power steering of the T6 has given way to an electromechanical system. This changes everything, because it opens up access to new…

West Coast Custom Vans are blessed to be based in a beautiful part of the world, in the far south of Cornwall a few miles along the coast from St Ives. Like many who are now earning their living working in the VW world, owners Simon and Sarah Earp started off by customising their own vehicles.

One of their latest conversions is this Candy White T6 which was very well specced right from the beginning, even before Simon got his hands on it, being a T32 204bhp Highline Kombi, with the DSG gearbox. It came with all the standard spec goodies including cruise control, air…
