    Well me speedo needle has arrived from LA as the original was the the same consistency as a mummies wrappings and the end snapped off, as it is not much bigger than a match stick I was surprised it came rattling around in a box that the speedo could fit in ........twice!!

    Everything up front Im going for the OG Kombi look, original seat material from the US covers fitted, meanwhile in the rear overhead clad in Oak, due to the rubbish quality of the cabinet latches available had to make one from a quality bog latch.
