Re: 14 in steels

Not much really, the tyres are probably one of the main selling points. I recently had a set of 5 painted with stainless steel caps and nearly new white wall tyres, I don't reckon I'd of got £250 for the 5.

I prefer the stock wheels myself so I'd keep them

Re: Sticky door rubbers

I used silicone spray on my window and door rubbers, it works well and blackens them up nice, only needed to do it twice a year Please don't use silicone spray anywhere near your bus. It will be a nightmare of fish eyes if you ever need to repaint/touch up damaged areas. Thanks for the advice, i sh...

Mot man is not the law, if it was fitted with safaris then washers are not needed, if it fails the mot then question it as they're wrong and report them

Re: Classic beetle as daily driver -mid life crisis or good

I've had no end of trouble with modern cars and not had any real problems with beetles or splits. You're looking at £3k these days for a half decent bug though. As above comments, life is too short, just do it :wink:

Re: what's the chances of matching up white?

Yes take it to the local car paint supplier or body shop, they'll have an electronic reader that'll match as best it can to the colour
