This guy Steve specialises in cabrio hoods. Don’t know what his work is like but he’s been around for a long time. His seat trimming etc is good.

Make sure you tape up the ends properly as it will trap water nicely.
That’s one advantage with the stock wrap ala Schofields....it breaths and doesn’t trap water. It’s what I used in the end and it is excellent....imho :wink:

Re: VW Remtec 2007cc Heat Exchangers

Depends to some extent on the quality of the bog bore HE’s. I had CSP big bore HE’s fitted to a 1776 (only 31cc’s less than your engine) and it was as good as the stock heaters on the original engine. Not cheap tho.....

Re: What’s the difference between a 64 and 67 Kombi 11 windows?

Re: Problems registering my bus

Your other option is to send your VIN number to https://www.automuseum-volkswagen.de/en/certificates-and-data-sheets.html and get a birth certificate. This is proof of the year of manufacture and I had no problems registering my bus using this. That won't work with a Brazilian bus. And even if it d...
