Re: Garage storage, cover on or off?

If your garage is a nice dry space then it would be nice to keep the dust off, otherwise it depends on the dampness of your garage floor.

IMO :cheers:

Re: Grrrr, fitting headlamp retainer springs!

I tried making some from a coat hanger but they were too thick, so I got away with using 4 or 5 if I remember correctly.

Re: My first bus OPF 446E still around?

:( hopefully the new owner will scrub that paint off and find the blue circle

Hope you get it back at a fair price, we've an emotional bond with our bus over the years of fun, so I can only imagine what it would be like to get it home.

Re: What colour?

1 more vote for go with the m code. Or go custom with non vw colours.

I don't believe there was ever a mango with fried eggs
