Thanks for letting me know Flags.

Flywheel/clutch sold
Steering column sold

Don't forget I can take these to Volksworld Spares on Sunday, after that I'll probably be putting things on eBay.

Cheers, Sam

Beach Buggy General Help / Re: Flatlands Fuel Tank or DIY?

Hi Snoopy,

I've been down the custom tank idea in the past but couldn't justify the price. I'd be happy with an adjusted beetle tank to get me on the road. Just want to be confident about making the adjustments myself if I'm going to give it a go.

Beach Buggy General Help / Flatlands Fuel Tank or DIY?
« on: January 20, 2019, 10:32:26 AM »
Hi All,

I called flatlands the other day to talk about one of their fuel tanks but Mark was suggesting I save some dosh and sort it myself.

I have a sidewinder shell with opening bonnet and plan to have the filler out of sight under the bonnet on drivers side. Opening bonnet has the extra divets for mounting headlights.

What's peoples thoughts? Should I just go with this https://www.vwheritage.com/113201075ad-fuel-tank-vw-spare style tank and adjust it myself? Seems like most available tanks need adjusting to suit rhd columns anyway. If I go this route, can it be done without any cutting or welding on the tank?

Grateful for any thoughts or encouragement.

Cheers, Sam

Yeah I was going to guess an early ring but didn't like the price of them so wanted to check! Think I need to study some photos and maybe take a gamble and try a few things out

Hi Snoopy.

There is a dip button on the indicator stalk. To be honest the column parts are all a mixture to get things how I wanted but can't remember all the details. It's hard work trying to remember where I left off 4 years ago!

Thanks, Sam

Beach Buggy General Help / Which indicator ring?
« on: January 13, 2019, 05:42:11 PM »
Evening folks.

Does it matter which cancelling ring I use? If so, which do I need? I think there's two types, early and late.

Here's what I've got.


Thanks for any help. Sam

Also found a spare original looking fan shroud. Good condition, no holes, just needs a gentle clean and some paint.









This has got to be 25 all day long.

Cheers Sam

Also, I have this master cylinder which isn't going to suit my project. I think its LHD 1302/03 no idea how I got it. 25 if it's any use to anyone.







And these swanky mirrors. They simply didn't look right on my project so are brand new never fitted complete with gaskets for fitting. They're fully adjustable in all directions (mirror face swivels and they rotate on mounting brackets). 25 the pair











Some of the photos aren't great but hopefully you get the idea. Can take more if interested.

Cheers, Sam

Tiny bit of progress today, positioned and welded front brake hose brackets...



Then spent the afternoon cleaning the carb. Got it all back together but ran out of fuel before I could tell if it had made much difference. Definitely got the accelerator pump working though so it can only be an improvement!

Waiting for pay day and a few bits in the post now before I can do much more  :'(
