Re: 21 window samba

Hi Steve If you email me on 07969 078 155 I can send a video walking around. The engine was supplied by Harry Harpics (who also did an IRS conversion using Beetle 1303 gearbox) and is very nice indeed. It drives very well but it is not fast as I wanted it fairly standard. There is no rust. It was to...

21 window samba

This is a german built 21 window samba. 1966, originally delivered to Finland. The van was completely stripped and the body restored by JMA Refinishers in original colours (Velvet Green). Harry Harpics did an IRS conversion and all of the running gear which look fantastic. The interior was done by D...

Re: VW Samba 21 window DOUBLE door model

Hi It needed total restoration. I guess the main thing is the body work. It is not a total rot box but there is a quite a lot of welding to be done. Windows and roof are very good... Minor works only. Lower down is not so healthy. All doors need repairs on bottoms. I think the cargo floor would be b...

VW Samba 21 window DOUBLE door model

Hi there I have a 1967 double door samba that I wanted to restore. I stripped it down, and put the body in with a good guy to have the welding and paint done. Unfortunately... he has fallen ill and cannot complete the work. The guy did my brothers triumph so I had no concerns - the work that has bee...

How do you fit a new loom?

Hi there I am restoring my bus ... I totally stripped it but the wiring was already out. It looks like an impossible task threading the new one back in there... How do you go about this? Is there an obvious method (that I am too thick to have noticed) or are there some clever tricks? Thanks in advan...

Re: sunrrof

Ah ok! Had no idea about that.

I am thinking I might run a bead of sealent along the underside to stick it on the roof and create a seal.... Don't think that can do any harm.

Thanks rikki and gertjan

Re: sunrrof

Hi rikki

I didn't know that there should be a deluxe trim type of insert on the golde rails.... Is that on the top or under side?
