Window stickers sent, thanks!

And just a friendly reminder, if paying by paypal, please send as a gift, otherwise paypal take 40p off and I'm out of pocket. Ta.

Pie, Jono, if you could drop me a PM with your addresses, and I'll reply with my paypal details for you. For some reason I've lost all my pm's from the last 6 months on here!

Help collecting small non urgent part at Brighton Breeze

For the first time since 2004 we can't make the Brighton Breeze ... 8O 8O 8O I've got a carb to pick up from Gerrit at Rage, who has a trade stand as usual at Brighton.

Re: New garage/workshop project for the Zombi Kombi!

When we last tuned the motor, my friend said the pick up was lumpy, and suggested trying another carb. I've got Gerrit at RAGE on standby for a rebuilt Solex as soon as I've got the pennies saved.
The bus is still gutless on hills, but has good compression all round.

Re: Roof tent on eBay SOLD

Back up for sale. It doesn't appear to have the roof clamps, or the matress. Was originally green I think, so heavily faded over the years.

Re: Show your garage!

Here's our garage, built by Buzz and Johnny K off this very forum 8) 8) 8) It's a couple of years old now. Original plan was always to paint the timber cladding black, and we're going to do that if we get a few good weekends in September. https://www.flickr.com/photos/29051501@N08/albums/72157650282...

Just checked google Jim, and surprised that it is spot on for my speedo ... 8O Got the road tyres on now. Nothing on the roof either. And the paint is nice and shiny too! https:/...
