Re: What’s the difference between a 64 and 67 Kombi 11 windows?

67 is a pretty weird ‘one year only’ too.... first factory 12v, black rubber dash knobs, fresh air vent internal changes, 2 speed wipers, some markets got dual circuit brakes and reverse lights... it’s a potential minefield .... but visually they look pretty much identical.

Re: Advice on Replaceing bottom 2 engine bolts

I can't begin to imagine how you could snap off both of these studs - they are pretty meaty. You'd have to be built like the Hulk to snap them tightening the nuts too tight - and I would have thought the nut would strip first TBH (although they are big 17mm spanner headed nuts) Neither can I imagine...

Re: 1960 Single Cab

Be careful of the rolling circumference - what's the difference between your 14" bus wheels/tyres and one of the crossplies stacked up behind - if you go too small it will be revving it's tits off on the motorway and top out at 50 (if your lucky)...
Is it small nut RGB's? I guess it is....

Re: Front nose repair

Hmmm - I'd be tempted to put on a full nose panel.... it looks pretty beat up all over!
yes its expensive - but will probably save a heap of time and have a much better result.

Re: Adjusting camber on red9

I may be wrong - but thought it was done by adding or removing washers where the A arms meet the beam?

Re: Vintage Looking 15" Tyres?

Yep.... crossplies ‘look’ nice.... but are now fearsomely expensive.... with questionable handling in modern terms....
would love some on mine... but the cost and performance put me off....
I’m sure in the States the hot rod boys use crossply ‘lookalikes’ that are actually Radials....
