Just buy one at a swapmeat or vw shop, check it for play and damage and have it refurished at a local or any recommended shop. That's the only way to be shure it's done properly.

Re: Restoring a flipseat SO-35 Westfalia

Very nice finds Serge 8) Well, found something far more interesting: We found a picture... http://i407.photobucket.com/albums/pp155/EvelynSerge/OmaVW-Bus.jpg Our bus in 1977. We found the former owner of our bus. He is the guy that created the granny on the sides. Took him 12 weeks to do so... He w...

Re: '65 Highroof WT Westy style!

That's some improvements there...Are you sure that Stella will be ready to roll for WT2012? Looks like you got some work to do... But great work! IRS would work for you i guess. If my bus wasn't such a rare car i'd be doing this mod also. Got leaking bearing houses again and there is a new roar when...

Re: recommend me a battery!

I would recommend the 55A Optima's. A bit pricey but strong and long lasting(if used well up to 8-10 years). These needs a charger(if used) whitch is capable of charging a Gel battery. Also make sure that there is no voltage leak on the first(starter) battery. Optima's don't like voltages below 11.2...

Re: Radios?

We don't have Ipods. We use it with 2 16GB SDcards. There are also 2 line-in ports(front and back) so any mp3 player could work i suppose.

Re: Restoring a flipseat SO-35 Westfalia

It has been a while since the last update but a lot of work has been done since then. Just finished the rack! I'm quite happy with the result. Just have to nail the Westy tag and it's all done. But i miss a nail so i have to find the proper nail first. http://i407.photobucket.com/albums/pp155/Evelyn...
