It'll be the first time in 3 years it doesn't clash with KKBO and VWAction so should be a good turnout. I'll be up for this too.

Nothing will change during the "Transition" period I wouldn't think.

Hi Rich thanks but that is an earlier column pre72 or alike where the wire are part of the switch.

Mark I could do but was thinking it is nice to have the correct plugs if possible as plenty of beetles have died and gone to the big scrapyrad in the sky and not been given aa second life as a buggy.

Must admit I'm keeping the original plugs on my bus too  - going to replace the little 2.8mm female spades and wires though.

Snoopy, can you not just use double ended female spade connectors to connect the column to the loom? I used 3 blocks of 4 of them for mine. It's handy to have the separate circuits split to separate blocks and disconnecting them to remove the column is nice and easy.

I know there's a lot on this weekend but if anyone is at a loose end, this event is on Friday 31st to Sunday at the Lincolnshire Showground. Buggies get in for free (Volksrod has a stand and display) whichever make yours is. This event was brilliant last year with loads of great vehicles, a trade stand hall and entertainment like the Burlesque show on Saturday. We had 10 buggies last year, let's see if we can get a few more.
As a sweetener Myles has 3 free weekend passes for camping - pm me if you're a definite and I'll get the pass emailed to you.
It really was a fantastic weekend last year - Comedy Rob with his stories around the camp fire was a hilarious highlight and he's back again this year :D

I'm seriously thinking about organising a get together at Hunstanton for next year, just need to approach our local council for permission to use the main green on the sea front.
I'd be up for that, it's only 60 miles from me.

'Hugh had his personal ships crew member serving him the drinks the rest of us had to walk to the counter.'

Yes I must have a word with the ship's staff as they were selling drinks to some pretty rum looking people last year...

Was that Roger the Cabin Boy ?

Pretty sure he was Seaman Staines
No Guv, it was Master Bates wot dunnit!

Looks like I got 120?miles more driving If I take the Eurotunnel But If I did take the Harwich Ferry I got 8hrs on a boat bleugh ,, I did look at the map and Esso A28 Vanenburg, looks like my best meeting point???

The best bit of IBW last year for me was the journey. You'll miss a big chunk of that. The ferry is a laugh too.

I've had a word with myself and awarded me a holiday for those dates :D

Beach Buggy General Help / Re: Tyres

I have just purchased my second buggy

Not sure if body kit yet but main question is tyres
I have slot mag wheels fitted front and back
Front tyres are shot - 175 70 14
Anyone any suggestions for what size is best?
I was planning on just putting same back on but they do look very narrow

Thanks rob

What size rims do you have? Mine are 14x6 fronts and I use 195/60x14 tyres which give roughly the right rolling circumference compared to the standard size, so the speedo is correct. !95/65x14 would be good too if you can find them.
