Re: Your bus outside the 'little pink shop'

The only rain we had last weekend was when I was driving round Croyde: https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/14188109_10157319512105175_7718386698325677393_o.jpg https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/14196007_10157319512215175_5901426954268962703_o.jpg https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn....

Re: Safari seals - Buttys or Monkeydub ?

Re: any beetle experts on here?

Easy way to tell is the front quarterlight. Up to 1964 has an upright quarterlight, 1965 onwards has an angled quarter light.

Re: How can I uncover my original paint?

Wire dish scourer and cheap paint stripper from your local paint supply shop. Dip the dish scourer in paint stripper, and scour the paint, ensuring only a thin application of stipper. Scour until OG paint begins to appear, then wipe any excess paint stripper off with a cloth. Way better than sanding...

Re: Well... I'm back in a bus; Doodles the 1965 Devon

Cheers G! Well, the 17s are gone! Decided that although I liked them, it was time to go for the wheels I'd always wanted. I know they're the 'common' choice, and for a while I've been trying desperately to avoid them - But they look so damned good I decided to just got for it! https://scontent-lhr3-...

Re: Well... I'm back in a bus; Doodles the 1965 Devon

Cheers G! Hi Nick, the tyres on the 17s have the same rolling radius as the tyres from the Teledials at the front, so they haven't raised the front. What I have done is lower the back to make the rear bumper essentially level with the front bumper; this has taken away the rake and as such the front ...
