Re: Front disk brake options for stock beam running 15" steels…

Fantastic mate, What a job your doing, Wipers will still be crap, Rainex is the way forward. Congratulations to you and Helen for a stunning Bus. And then there is the interior!!

Re: ***SSVC Display at the Volksworld Show***

Ive heard that they are attempting to charge £10 per vehicle for club displays , is this true, New Waves have been told this, And as one of the first to endorse this show we are a bit miffed, I suspect a Boycott. Also one ticket per vehicle, whats the score?

Re: Disc brake conversion?

personally I'd fit the discs first then fit a servo if needed If you are fitting a servo, as said VWJim has a great rep I've had two busses, both with discs (two different systems) and they both stopped on a dime without a servo The main benefit for me is there is no brake fade down a long hill as ...

Re: " Trix " our 66 adventure continues.............

Just a suggestion and it maybe too late, but for the curved sections try laminating 3 layers of veneer (.8mm thick ) thus making your own ply, i.e. centre section perpendicular. Then saturate the outside and it will go around the curve on its own, and bond it to 4mm flex-ply.
