Re: Someone making lovely looking Devon interiors and parts

Kevin has posted some more pictures of a 1966 Devon Torvette Spaceway interior he has restored and a sympathetic Easicool cupboard he has made to meet the owner's requirements.. Really nice restoration involving refinishing most of the existing structure but replacing the laminated doors and revenee...

Re: RE: VIN decoder

Hi, I' have a VIN number of a splitscreen but they don't have the M-pate anymore so I would like to see the M-plate information based on the VIN number. I searched the internet for a while but did not found anything. Does this kind of a VIN decoder exists? BR, JuSa If you have the VIN number that c...

Re: Front Seats

the seats are identical... just need the brackets welding on to match the driver's seat slide. The catch on the seat is the same on LHD and RHD... if you look at the AHS site the components are the same just welded to make RHD and LHD sets... to cope with the well being deeper in the middle.. http:/...

If you search on thesamba.com Gabriel did does offer the service. I have taken lots of locks apart to get a one ...

Re: Tyre rating ?

I know this is off thread...but why do stock buses run 106 8 ply rated commercial tyres but slammed buses seem to go for much lower rated tyres? I know the ratings are based on loading but I was told my spare would fail if fitted which was not side wall reinforced.. I have driven MPVS Galaxy Espace ...

Re: Strange intermittent non starting problem.

If it is the ignition switch...They can be re keyed but I would ask someone like Gabriel at vwgabkey on thesamba.com if he can do it and the cost.... O...
