Re: Front glass and o/s front quarter light window

Front door Glass bud. Not front screen. ;) Ah that's where you threw me. They only have one door each side so I don't refer to it as front glass, just door glass :D Will any glass do? Ive got two sets and will be picking the best pair for my car. So the remaining two will be up for grabs once the r...

Re: Vaccum pipes

On the carb manifolds I have 1 pipe on the left carb, and 2 on the right hand manifold, I have plugged these off with tape Ok they are the balance pipes not vacuum pipes. Either as my purples has posted. you have one manifold with the 2-1 adapter fitted and one with out. Or you have two different m...

Re: Vaccum pipes

Are you auto or manual? The manual will only have 1 vacuum pipe. It runs from the left hand carb to the vacuum unit on the distributor.

Could you be referring to the balance pipe which connects to the manifolds?

Re: Front glass and o/s front quarter light window

Front glass as in windscreen? Ive got one thats use able. but by no means mints. Alternatively try your insurance company. Glass doesnt need to be broken for you to get a replacement. If its scratched or just hard to see out of you can get a replacement. They will even replace it just because you wa...

Re: In car heating.

the cable is a couple of quid from any of the usual suppliers. And the two tubes you need are just bits of exhaust flexi with some insulation wrapped round them. Something like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/35mm-1-3-8-ID-Flexi-Pipe-Tube-175mm-Exhaust-Flexible-Tubing-Excellent-Quality/273024258804?...

Re: MOT Changes, May 2018

This is a potential minefield! On Sunday I retaxed my KG and, after the system couldn't find a current MoT, it said that since the car was more than 40 years old, it might be eligible for MoT Exemption. If I believed that it was substantially original then I just had to tick the box and - hey prest...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

The plastic guides? They're from Simon Kelly. He's got them on eBay £10 a guide with two pins. If your seat rails are in the original position then you'll find your seats are very loose and rattly with out the guides. I ran mine with a few pieces I had and drivers seat was always a little loose. I d...

What do we go for? As of yesterday any car manufactured more than 40 years ago is on a winner if they meet the 8 point system criteria. So mine is not tax and test free :D

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

You could always take the filler flap into your friendly local motor factors and get them to use the colour scanner to identify the shades. Alternatively, they might have the old colour swatches in a cupboard somewhere Thats exactly what I planned to do. The folks I use will have all the colour chi...

The blue on the bottom of the flap looks more like the Baltic Blue on my square. Yeah its not dissimilar but its a couple of shades more blue. closer to baby blue I think. Having googled both there isnt a lot in it. But the Baltic blue is 65-67 offering. The blues which were available when my car w...

All I can do you for here is a series of small jobs, so it wont be as exciting as the last one. I spent a bit of time stripping the rest of the body down, windows out, parcel shelf out, door catches off. that kinda thing. The rear side window seals feel very good. they're still soft with no signs of...
