Re: Garage car skates

I can't remember where I got mine from, but they look exactly like those on the link. They have scooted my van round the garage without any problem at all. I've had them about 5 years now and they're still fine

Re: Garage car skates

As Who me? said, once the wheel s are swivelled into line it's easy. Garage floor would have to be very rough to be an issue.

The Samba.com is always your best bet for original colour codes.

Re: Looking for recommendations for recovery services

There is a self drive truck hire place in Money Lane, Bromsgrove. You can drive their small recovery truck on an ordinary car license. Costs about 100 quid for the day plus diesel but I imagine they do a weekly rate. Problem for you would be getting them one at a time.

Re: 1967 splitscreen

The bracket for the rear valance is there. Is it possible to fit the engine lid and valance to get the lines for the corner panel? I would try Schofields first for the panel. It will hopefully seem obvious once you have the panel to offer up against the others. If it helps my 67 is 374 mm from the t...

Re: Paint Colour, Lotus White?

Try the colour charts on thesamba.com , there are plenty of pictures of most of the colours though even then it varies depending on your monitor. The only way to get a perfect match would be to find a proper paint supplier who will mix to match your sample, the wing mirror perhaps? It looks like a r...

Re: New to Scene

You don't have to wait till you've bought your split to join the club. It's probably the best way to find out what it's really like to live with one.

Re: painting a split Bus for dummies!

Never tried an electric sprayer so I can't comment.

If you are just doing the outside then I would have thought 5lt would be more than enough.
