    67 DeLuxe

    Nice one Mike - although once you start uncovering the life that the bus has had before you it can become daunting (an sometimes more ££) - but hang in there, it'll be worth it. 67/68 Titian reds rule!!! ;)

    For sale: rear bench seat and z-hinges

    Hi, I'm 99% sure that the backrest does not attach to the base of the seat - as if it was it wouldn't allow the seats to be unfolded into the "bed" position. I did google for fitting instructions but can't find anything :( I'll see if I have any older pics of when the seat was fitted in my...

    Narrowed Beam

    I have a T2d 4" narrowed beam (with adjusters) on my 68. Would swap for a 2" version - as I'm an old fcuker and have also changed the whole look/stance of my bus :)

    Early Bay for breaking

    Hi, Do you have the part numbers from these - or know which side sliding door they are for? I am looking for a pair for the off-side sliding door. Also, what condition are the rear light clusters/bulb holders in - all tabs intact/no corrosion/good connections (I don't need lenses) etc? Thanks
