Re: Stolen parts by Alex Bell - Transporterhaus.de - so23westfalia.com

Another 6 weeks and no response from Alex. I have offered to pay to pack and pay to ship the bed frame from him to us, I have offered to pay to have a courier come pick it up, I have offered to let Alex keep the $3000.....and he still doesn't feel like that's good enough? What else does he want? Is ...

Early Westfalia leather curtain strap kit

$200/set This is a reproduction curtain strap kit for pressed bumper era ('50-'58) Westfalia campers. These straps were all patterned off of the weathered originals in our January '56 spring frame Westy, but some straps are correct for other years as well. This is not an off the shelf strapping mate...

We still haven't received any kind of response from Alex. Hopefully one day the stolen parts will turn up.

Re: Stolen parts by Alex Bell - Transporterhaus.de - so23westfalia.com

Wow! Sounds a bit unrealistic is that a full story? 10 years.... 3000$.... why it was left so long if you realy needed. I don't leave stuff for 10 years "somwhere" Sorry if it is not, but it's just sounds like that. Yeah, that's pretty much the whole story. I don't think it was exactly left for ten...

Re: Stolen parts by Alex Bell - Transporterhaus.de - so23westfalia.com

If this turns out anything like Steve`s irreplaceable Mauser bowl which he also "lent" Alex to copy, then I`m afraid this won`t be a happy ending... As I understand it that was a little different, I heard Alex packed up it so it would survive being run over by a truck and sent it to a manufacturer ...

Re: Stolen parts by Alex Bell - Transporterhaus.de - so23westfalia.com

Excellent. Thanks! If anyone has any more details please post them up. If transporterhaus is selling on eBay, does anyone have a return address? Hopefully at some point the bed will get returned, absolutely no sense in Alex keeping it for 10+ years. If he owes money or parts to anyone else, come for...

Stolen parts by Alex Bell - Transporterhaus.de - so23westfalia.com

Hello, Does anyone have any contact addresses for Alex Bell? Or know where he keeps his buses and parts? I think I need to hire a private investigator to retrieve some property he has stolen. Alex used to run so23westfalia.com and is now running http://transporterhaus.de/ About 10-12 years ago he bo...

I`ve heard from a friend in the U.S (who has actually seen the bus in person) that the previous damage to the front was quite consideable, and not fixable without major surgery - which would detract from the overall desirability/value of the bus :? :( The nose damage isn't that bad That`s strange G...

The dual circuit master is a bit longer and the pedal pan for '67 originally had a cut out to clear this. You could trim a '61 pan to fit without too much trouble.

I use 3M weatherstrip adhesive for most things and use household contact cement for the overhead air vent flaps.

I've seen people use friction tape trimmed up and doubled over. Seemed to work well.

Might be a good idea to pull the engine and have a look. I had to replace the frame horns in my '66 singlecab because the ends were rusted off and the engine was dropping down.
