What suspension are you thinking Bryce?

I'd like to go height and rebound adustable.  What did your old man end up using?  I'm in Berlin this week so may try to get to tm tuning

Dad had the same as what you had in your Mk2. Ive got the rebound adjustable ones.
It might be worth looking into KW as well?

So, I'm back from Europe and on Sunday I went to Geelong to pick up my new car.  I was tempted to drive him home, but with 120km to travel I opted for a car trailer. Em has named him Andy. (there has be a toy story joke there about owning other cars at a racetrack and writing Andy on their tyre tread)

Anyway, Andy is in nice solid condition, not mint, but definitely workable.  I have ordered all the manuals I need, so will start pulling bits off over the next few weeks.  There are 3 bits of rust to deal with and a very badly cracked/wavy dash to replace (anyone got one of those black plastic ones?!?).

The suspension (I have driven it around the block a few times....don't tell the po po) rides like a boat.  I think it stopped rocking this morning after my drive last night (maybe it was the earthquake).  I've found a great deal on Spax RSX fully adjustable coilovers.  Anyone had any experience?  They seem like a really good deal and have features that match the KW V3, etc?

Pics will come soon....once it stops raining.

When you would have seen my MK1 it ran Spax suspension, a spring and damper kit though. I really enjoyed it.

I love mk1s.
 Im working on kevadventures cabby right now and its so easy and mostly well made.
 Well its still going and will still go for 30 more years if its looked after.
 Remember KISS? Keep it simple stupid.

That's good to know.  It seems they are popular with other car makes, but not so with VW guys? 

Just had an email back and they are AUD890 shipped to Australia.  Bargain considering I think I paid $850 for the Patec's I had on the Mk2.

God, I've missed man shopping for my car....

The interior is actually pretty ratty.  Will need new dash, front seats and parcel shelf.  I was thinking about going to some of those black door cards from old skool vw.

I have opening vent windows and I need the latch for the ledt side as it has dropped off at some point and the window is just taped shut.  It looks like this (apparently the same as some transporters).



It is the glue on type

Any help?

I may have the latch and I also just got given some two door black door cards with the handles etc your welcome to them. Not perfect but good for the age.
 I think I gave a very good black plastic old dash to the guy who bought my ABF mk1, Ill see if it can be got.
 You have to keep those seats tho! Just get em redone I love them.

 Your dash is ok as well really, if you have the money you can do it all but really they are old and can't be perfect......... 8) Can they?
