Hi

I am converting a Movano. Having windows added to front side panels and would like some black panels on the rear half of the sides
I have seen them on older campervans but they could have been made by that builder
So, what I want are two black panels with some sort of louvre or vent appearance that will attach to the rear half of the side panels
Any ideas?
Mick

I know what you’re after because so am I!
I was thinking of getting pvcu cladding and wrapping it in vinyl as I doubt I’ll find anything the right size.

Glad someone doesn’t think I’m barmy
I have considered acrylic and pvc younger and groove board
What are you building / or what did you build?
Windows being fitted Thursday so may have more idea Friday
I’ll report back if I find a solution

I’m removing my rear side windows in the next day or so, my concern is that the panel I’m replacing them with will sit too deep in the frame, hence looking at this solution. Having said that, from what I hear DVLA can be picky on windows so a different profile for the glass would help my case.
Anyhow for now the plan is to cover the flat panel in gloss vinyl wrap, I’ve used aluminium for various reasons but it’s the quickest and easiest way to cover them.

Let us know how it goes
I have a different problem with how to make a big white panel look ‘interesting’ and cover up the sign marking text that has left an outline

It would only cost £10/30 to try it and you can peel it off if you don’t like it. You can either buy one Pre cut (£££) or on a roll (£)

I'd love some of those plastic panels to cover over the obscene amount of glass in the HiCube. I can't see me finding any though. for now I've covered unwanted windows in green vinyl, with upholstery on the inside to stop them glowing. That little window in the side is now aluminium and has the fridge outlet vents in it.

In the future I intend to weld up any unwanted windows.
