Re: 1972 Fastback Fuel Tank

I met a guy at VWNW Tatton Park show, had a stack of NOS parts and a lot of type 3, got me a few bits inc a NOS fuel tank breather!

He also had a NOS fuel (carbed) tank. Don't know his name but was from Scotland.

Our very own Danny Lord knows him also so may have a contact for him.

Re: Vw Type 3 Performance brakes

I'm running CSP vented (slotted) discs with Mk1 golf GTI calipers - these bolt straight onto late model stub axles. I did originally run Audi coupe calipers (54mm bore) but could easily lock up the front end so the GTI (48mm) much better). Remember the weight of the car is rear biased so over brakin...

Re: My Notchback.... One for the haters

Good work Kai

can you tell me was your windscreen brand new ? if so what make was it ? I had a brand new Triplex one years ago and was very poor fitment/quality.

Also what are the arches? look well ;)

Re: There is actually some nice type 3's for sale.....

I thought prices look reasonable, especially the one above....compared to the rest of the VW range.

If they are as nice as they look. :unibrow:
