He's cooked the clutch... Dragged it out of the barn for a few days camping on Exmoor, got as far as Taunton when he noticed a distinct lack of drive, so dragged home on the back of a wrecker. Our local garage has pulled the engine out and confirmed that the clutch is shot - not bad after 8,000 mile...

Thanks guys

Have a local garage looking at it at the moment, disconnecting both sides to check it's all free, but suspect the sterring box is not good, it could be heading your way shortly Jim...

More steering

Ed's Kombi (see rides and projects) is now complete and MOT'd, but has developed a steering problem. It's not lowered, is running a bay beam with all new ball joints, track rods, steering damper, idler overhauled etc. Only thing not touched is the 'box. Got through the MOT fine but now it's got a co...

Got belts for Ed's Kombi from Quickfit safety belts in Stanmore - excellent service, made to measure in a choice of colours to match the interior, and a fitting service available if you can get to them. Ask for Eve, the cute Lithuanian receptionist, what she doesn't know about classic cars and seatb...

Air Filter

The engine is back in Ed's Kombi but needs an air filter. Don't fancy refitting the old oil bath, would like a washable K&N with a chrome housing - anyone know where I can get one?

2 small children, secondhand seatbelts? I wouldn't do it if they were my offspring. Crash protection is non-existent in a splittie already without taking chances on secondhand belts. I've just had some made to fit Ed's Kombi by Quickfit in Stanmore - not cheap but top quality and peace of mind. http...

Eeef Location shouldn't get in the way - finding the right restorer is far more important. I can't recommend Clive Miles too highly (see Ed's '62 Kombi on rides and projects) but he's booked up way into the future. We agreed agreed a plan before we started and Clive has invoiced as major steps have ...

At least there's a bit of blue to go on to tone it down a bit, which should be happening this evening...

Ed is camped out in Clive's garden generally making a nuisnace of himself - sweeping the workshop, making the tea, rubbing down panels, just like when I was an apprentice!

If Clive gets his finger out (and he is burning the midnight oil, bless him) in a few (?) weeks you could see the completing of his first full resto on Ed's Kombi. I went to see it today and it is looking ace - he is one good craftsman where panelwork and paint is concerned. All the mechanicals are ...
