Re: info on VW export ships

Here's a picture for you of the rear cover of a Flotter Transport special edition brochure that I have in my collection/scanned into the samba's archives:

Re: 12v wiper motor??

I've got the correct 6 volt Bus wiper motor available NOS and used. As per type21's posting above, it is then a 2 minute job to change the armature. Going down that route means you know 100% that the motor will physically fit. Why go to the hassle of getting a Beetle wiper motor (which has a differe...

Re: 2 speed wipers problem

Do they do a two speed 6v?? Yes. As per the parts book extracts: 211 955 111 Q = 6 volt, August '65 to end July '66. It is two speed. 211 955 113 Q = 12 volt from August '66 to end of production July '67. Also 2 speed. Essentially they are the same motors apart from the armatures of course. Also th...

Re: 2 speed wipers problem

6 volt motor as per original European spec for a '66 or a 12 volt conversion?

Re: Paint Rescue Needed - Cheshire

You posted the below, last November in your resto thread. Did you end up using him? RESULT! Whilst at the skip on Wednesday I thought I'd go see if a guy we'd used a couple of times for fixes on other cars was still in business (it had been 5-6 years since we'd used him) and as luck would have it, h...

Re: Ricardo Jimenez in LA

All ads on the samba have a feedback tab you can click to see if there is any feedback on the seller. Also the length of time the seller has been a samba member is listed. A long time member with some positive feedback would be a good recommendation.

Re: Best websites for VW classifieds

The samba.com currently has 469 ads for Split Buses and 8000 ads for Split Bus parts!
I would suggest this is more than every other VW site combined.
Its online user figures are impressive as well.

Re: Best euro show for 2015

The EBI takes place one week after the vintage Bad Camberg show, so that people can visit both whilst "on the road", time and budgets permitting.
