I don't know about the bracket, but I've got a spare spring somewhere.

Packed a few belongings and headed out to Pirates Cove. In my buddy’s old grey Kombi we rolled until the gas got low.....

I contacted people who were breaking buses in US and in UK.
I posted a WANTED on thesamba.com.
Had lots of very nice replies from US and Canada but most admitted they were too far gone.
It took a long time but eentually a poster on the SSVC forum kindly sent me one ..FREE..
I also replied in sympathy on another WANTED on here and a guy offerred one..
so keep hope up!
Nearly had one made one in desparation!

It's the bracket on the ,'d' pillar I'm looking for as in the photo below, I've found a rough one on the samba but it's over £100 shipped, is there any member local- ish to Ross on wye or Hereford that wouldn't mind me making a copy of theirs ????
