Re: Whats the best Splitty Colour

It is a personal thing really. If you were to walk into a VW dealership today and buy a new VW Van, what colour would you choose?

Re: Interior wood choice

Personally I think you should look at what inspired the interiors of the time. While I do like the Westphalia/Devon interior it was built to a budget and using the materials they had at the time. But I think that you are caught between a rock and a hard place in VW terms as a bit like a Cal Look Bee...

Re: Solar panels help

Putting the solar panels inside of an old suitcase is a good idea. Find a suitable suitcase from a swapmeet or charity shop. Buy 2 solar panels that fit inside the suitcase. The Marine/RV/Caravan suppliers are a good source of kits in various sizes, they will come with a regulator, charge controller...

Re: Insuring Wife to drive the bus.

Sounds like a sad situation most of you have. My Mrs drives the van. But insurance allows anyone who has a drivers licence to drive it, it isn't driver specific like the UK. All I tell people is the front wheels are under your bum so don't cut corners and don't drive to fast around the corners other...

Re: VW suppliers selling poor qaulity fuel line, Petition

Noted that the kits sold by Machine7 and alot of you are running with jubilee clips or screw metal clamps for the fuel lines. New cars have spring clips rather than jubilee clips for the fuel lines as unlike jubilee clips they have a constant pressure regardless of temperature. http://autobahn88-uk....

Re: Is this a safe place to cable tie fuel lines to?

As an aside most new cars have spring hose clips for fuel lines rather than jubilee clips that many of you have fitted to your fuel lines. This is because they keep the same pressure on the hose regardless of how hot they get. http://autobahn88-uk.com/shop/995-1357-thickbox/10pcs-x-22mm-7-8inch-fuel...
