They’re from Heritage guys. The light body actually have C&C embossed on the housing. The lenses are not hella but seem ok. I bought a pair of the complete light assembly. Haven’t seen the chrome ring on rears before apart from the US spec red ones.

Had a great time on our Atlantic coast road trip through Spain and France.

We got the ferry from Portsmouth to Santander then drove back north through the Basque Country into south west France. I’ve wanted to do this trip for a few years and we saw some lovely coastline along the way.
I must have driven around 900 miles not counting the 700 in England !
I had a Litesteer epas fitted just before the trip so this made driving so easy it was great.

Great trip Mike. Glad it was trouble free.
Thanks for all the comments !
Yes it was trouble free, the engine and gearbox work well together, I’ve done 13k miles with them now.
Glad I got the carbs set up properly, and the new Litesteer was like it had always been there.
The only thing I had to fix was a loose connection on the windscreen washer washer button.

Went to Dubs int Dales VW show this weekend. Great new venue near Kilnsey Crag, Grassington.

Great to talk to some VW enthusiasts and see some lovely buses. 😀
