There's a real tight brains trust down there in SA. It's refreshing to see the VW spirit of helping out your mates is alive & well.
I'm looking forward to getting down there & meeting you blokes.
Bus is coming on great too BTW.
Tony.

I do like black steel rims on a bus
No matter what happens they can't take you out in the street and shoot you......

Third set are average at best and might have to do till I find another set at maybe a swap meet at a later date
( sing out if anyone has a old set kicking around from a old bus )
Rusty did u keep all those frames u scored at the day of one year, looking for a latch holder for one frame
Cheers
