Re: MPG

I have 1600 with twin 34’s and recent IRS conversion with AH gearbox. I have started trying to use a full tank and remember to take photos each time I fill up. I have three calculations 31 / 24 / 26 the variation is mostly down to how low I ran the tank as I wouldn’t want to spoil a holiday running ...

Re: Clutch clearance issue

I’m in the process of fitting beetle engine to my 75 splitscreen; the clutch should match the release bearing so believe it should be 200mm with centre pad. Cheapest kit I could find was cool air VW, not German quality but I thought worth a try: https://www.coolairvw.co.uk/Item/Shop_by_Vehicle~Beetl...

Re: Brazil Influx

I have a South African splitty so maybe I'm biased but I have no problem with them. They have the look of the original vehicle but with some modern features and no 40 year old metalwork. So often new cars lose the essence of the original (like those huge minis for instance).

Re: Deflation??

Thought show was much busier than I have seen it for years. I spent about £450 in total so not worried about the £2 increase :)

Re: Anyone know this bus? For sale definitely a scam

I saw these busses and thought they were way too cheap, had thought maybe @rse had dropped out of splitting market. Phew :)

Re: My first splitty (Fleetline)

Looking through my photo history reminds me that I have spent the last 18 months partying too much and not enough progress on the fleetline! Updates to follow but I'll start with a photo of the day I bought the bus from Andy, he can be seen demonstrating the correct posture for driving a T2. http://...

Cheers Sooty

Tidy bus apart from bird poo also!
I have a newish door to install now.
Photos are flattering as the high contrast hides the dents and rust, but that said it is a solid bus .. You'd expect nothing less as it was bought off a guy on this forum (via eBay). Thoroughly top bloke IMO.

My first splitty (Fleetline)
