Re: Badge Clips

Sounds like mr purple is right, you need to file away some of the paint which has built up in the holes during the respray

Re: Front body mounting bushes.

The ones which fit with the front beam clamp? They are very hard to get in the gap between the fuel tank rail and the clamp once the body is mounted down, there is a good 5mm compression in the bush. If I were you id pay a little extra for next day delivery and fit new ones now. The effort you will ...

Re: 68 fastback - Marko's old car - bits n bobs!

You are correct, you'll have half an inch extra wheel. I would assume 1/4 inch each side of center. and then about 20mm off set further to the the outboard side of the car. I dont expect anyone makes a type 3 sprint star. They will all be made for beetles, which had 40mm off set of i recall? Ive got...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

Cheers, I hope it runs lovely.

Yes, they're amazing. The stove keeps the house tepid all day, when i get in from work the central heating kicks in and warms everything up in half and hour. In the mean time i stoke the stove up and get the fans blowing which then keeps the warmth in the house all evening. Saving a fortune on the c...
