My Roadrunner kombi

Post by iesugrist »

67 model - Is in USA at the moment and gonna get nice new Mexican 1600 engine and a paintjob before being shipped here :) Paint gonna be peachish/whiteish...... getting new brakes and transaxle or something techish like that.. no lowering.. staying 'normal' ;)

Not sure what to do with interior - non-walkthrough model so I'd like some ideas of what to do with interior space wise...??

It the fresh air supply to the van the knob in the picture directs the air to the front or rear of the van a lever on the front turns it on and off. 8) Mike

When positioned to the front it blows straight over my head and cools my left leg. When positioned to the back I dont know as I cant reach the steering wheel from the back to try it. :roll: It does give an anoying whistle though. If it worked so well why would VW fit Safari windows. Any hoo I can just open the sunroof instant coolness. :D Mike

I find you get a better airflow if you set the knob to the rear, don't know why. The best way to get fresh air in is to open your vent windows so they point in towards you. Who needs safaris?

You obviously don't have them then!

No I don't. I'm not denying that they let more air in, just that I find the vent windows sufficient.

iesugrist,

If you haven't already done so, read jblackmores useful thread about fitting a rock and roll bed - http://www.ssvc.ukshells.co.uk/phpbb/vi ... php?t=3878.
Alternatively you can get complete diy or fitted modern interiors from Danbury, CalypsoCampers or Busgutz to name a few.
I've kept my Kombi in its original state for the time being, with just middle row of seats behind which is a general dumping ground.

looks in bloody good nick for it's age issy. can't wait to see it when it's done and peach and cream looks real nice. I am surprised you havn't gone for a bluey colour. 8) we can have a race when it comes over ( if mine is done by then)
if it ain't broke don't fix it
