Best place to buy front tubs

Post by silversteve » Sat Feb 27, 2016 3:55 pm

Thinking of tubing the front of the bus, sick of front tyre rub lol. Where is the best place to buy some? or is it best making your own?

You can fit a bench over these same as flat surface ones.

Google them there is a thread on thesamba I was looking at yesterday with Si Medlicott's adjustable bench fitted.

Edit: here it is http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewto ... &start=280

TQR will ship them with the extra seat mounts according to what you specify.

They also do a half tub which means you don't have to modify your seat or seat position at all but still gives you the extra inch or so on the inside edge.

TQR tubs fit really nice, and only a minor mod' to the seat frame.
