Re: Leaking after washing??

There is only 1 way, Remove the pipe work, it just pulls off, pull away from the drain, then in each corner at the top is a 10mm set screw. Remove those and slowly lower the box, you will see two cables connected to connected to the top which control the flaps. Photograph that and then disconnect. ...

Re: Taking Suspension back to factory

Depends how much you're raising it, if it's just a bit you may be ok, from recollection I put Bugpack reds on the front and KYB gas-a-just on rear so decent shocks that haven't done a load of mileage if they still fit.

Re: Taking Suspension back to factory

Jake, you'll need to replace the shocks front and rear, as I fitted brand new shortened items to suit the ride height. I don't think they'll be long enough to support standard ride height. Believe it or not, I actually raised the car, as it was even lower when I got it, which is probably a contribut...

then 2 weeks driving/camping around Germany/Austria/Slovenia: Can I recommend Baden Baden.

Re: We all having a knap?

You need one with roof height to get the T25 in as well ! Everything below the roof rusts :) Yeah, I'm hoping I've headed it off at the pass with this one, it's pretty solid and I feel I should have shares in Dinitrol with the amount I've blasted into any cavity I can get the probe into (oo-er)! :)...

The 412LS is sat waiting for me to give her a look over before some Summer runs out. Everyone must have a reliable type 3 and 4 these days :lol: Hah...

This is on a Type 4, but Stef at MAC VW in Manchester recently did this which I thought was a really cool solution (this engine is now in a Notch): https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/26231515_1819375321437927_7574383344542216719_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=dad75e67b16e8c73f9f0ef68d25ee99c&oe=5B5D6...

Re: Help - I kow nothing about my car!!!

It sounds like it may well need a good service and tune up. What part of the country are you in? I imagine taking it to a decent aircooled mechanic or possibly someone local to you willing to help will be a good first step. I've found most aircooled guys I've dealt with happy to give you a quick wal...

Re: Looking for my Old Type 3 Fastback 1600E Iberian Red

Unfortunately the new GDPR regs seem to have killed off a lot of use for the V888 form, I recently tried to use one for more previous owner info about my Van, much like I did with the Fastback, only to be told they no longer issue such information (due to the regs) :(

Did you rebuild it Chino?
It's never had a body off resto to my knowledge, if that's what you mean. I added all the missing bits back to it and refreshed a load of bits. I re-covered all the seats and fitted new carpets myself, that kind of thing.

Re: 1971 Fastback Iberia Red

I think there is a lot of luck involved in selling a car. If somebody is looking that has the money they will pay for the right car. My 72 Fastback (Blue Thunder) sold recently for £8500. Which surprised (and pleased me). You can always come down in price but you can't go up ! Tbf if Blue Thunder i...
