    Fusebox mounting position?

    When I got my bay the fusebox bracket was all bent up and it was screwed in upside down. As I've just rewired the front section of the loom after a fire I'd like to mount the bracket properly. Problem is I don't know how the bracket is supposed to be fixed and I can't find any clear pics online...

    Wanted: Sliding Door Inside Handle

    Mine finally snapped, there was a crack in it for a while. I know I can get them various places, but they all seem to be dual LHD/RHD handles and therefore the hole is central. On the originals the holes are offset. Anyone got one I can buy? Thanks.

    WANTED: Radio bracket

    PO used two massive joined together jubilee clips to secure the radio to the dash, but it's not very secure (there's nothing holding the back of the radio to stop it sagging), hence I'm looking for a bracket or bar, whatever was used for this task. I can't find any mention of it on the usual...

    WANTED: Under-dash speaker tray

    I'm looking for a speaker tray to go under the dash. This is what an original one looks like, fifth post down: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?p=8655798 There is a repro available but it is expensive and you have to buy the speaker to go with it, which I don't want to do...

    Removing old paint from cargo floor

    I've been at it for what seems like hours, using my grinder and a polystrip disc, and I've barely scratched the surface (unintentional pun!). There's gotta be a better way, surely? Follow up question. Once its back to bare metal (approx 2023 at this rate), zinc primer, etch primer, or...

    Weight distribution side-side

    I've been wondering about this, as I've currently got all the furniture out of the bus and found that it weighs a ton. Maybe more. It occurred to me that as most of the weight is distributed on the right hand side (on a RHD obv.) that this could be a point of blame for a buses poor handling...

    My fuel gauge is off...

    Since buying the bus I’ve filled it to the brim a couple times and noticed that the gauge reads just over 3/4. I ran it down to just between R and 1/4’ish and when i filled it again it took only 35 litres which means it was just a bit under half full (60 litre tank?). I am wondering if these...

    Fuel cap. Which way to fit/remove?

    I have received a second locking fuel cap from JK because the first one I ordered did not lock. Well, it did, but the wrong way (Once its locked and key withdrawn you can rotate the cap off, but it slips if you try to put it on). The second cap is doing the same thing. So either: 1) JK sent me...

    I need a reversing light...

    So I want to fit a reverse light, like one of these: https://www.justkampers.com/181-941-071-b-reversing-light-assembly-for-vw-beetle-1946-onward-and-t2-1950-1979.html. These look like the lights I've seen retrofitted to early bugs though I have seen an image of an early bay with 2 of these...
