Re: Rear Light Issue

I had the same problem with my bus a while back. Indicators all worked, but just flashed at double speed. Swapped out the flasher relay for another known good one - problem solved. Could just be a simple as that.

Re: V55/5 filling in help...

Bear in mind that the DVLA are in meltdown at the moment due to COVID. Don't expect that even if you fill it in correctly, you'll be getting your V5 any time soon. The 4-6 weeks lead time that they show on the website should be regarded as a bare minimum. It took 6 weeks to get mine back. Send a cov...

Re: ***Stoner***

Tempted. I take it that we'd be buying tickets as spectators? To qualify as a participant,

'you must bring either a supercar, sport cars or GT, classic or modern.'

Not sure that my bus falls into any of those categories!

They'll cut it to code for you too for an extra £10 (I've just had a T code one done by them).

Re: Front axle from t2b fit?!

I see that your bus is from 1968, but you currently have a king and link pin axle from 1967 fitted. Now unfortunately, the bolt pattern for the front axle changed for the 1970 model year (August '69), so any axle after this date will not fit your vehicle. The only T2a axle you can use therefore is f...

Re: 15" Wheels

I'd quite like to see the back of these, so if anyone's interested in making me a cheeky offer, go ahead. I realise that they need a bit of work, but any powder coaters would be able to make them look as good as new without too much effort.

Re: z bed hinges

I'll take some when I'm back home at the weekend, but they're identical to those above. £120+postage as above seems a fair price, or else you could collect- I'm down the road from where the Volksworld show is held, in Surrey. I'm interested if still available. How much posted please to Brum? They a...

As you can see, there's a little bit of rust on one of them.

Postage will be £10.

Re: 15

January '64 - right on the money. It actually originally would have been fitted with 14" wheels, but they had been swapped for 15's in the distant past, and I prefer them. Just have to get it registered now. It's a RHD Swedish Import, and I've been waiting 4 weeks now for the registration documents ...

Re: 15

Well I went with 185/80/15 Nexen Roadian CT8 Commercial Tyres on mine in the end. They look good, and fill the arches perfectly: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/2080470.jpg https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/2080474.jpg https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/2080473.jpg https://www.the...

WTB: MPH Speedo

As per title - let me know what you've got.

I'm after an 80mph speedo in good condition, to replace the kph one in mine (happy to do a trade if you're after a kph one!)

Thanks
