I'm considering a rebuild for a '90 Westy and would rather have a donor engine to work with in order to minimize downtime. Ideally, it should be a 2.1 (86-91) engine, as complete as possible, with...
No, thank you! Sweet deal on a new manual from a great seller. :thumbup::thumbup:
We have to make sure the old boy's reflexes are still good.
Lookee here - two amazing MKII fenders. OE, with VIN tags still attached. I don't know that you could find any that are in better shape and more rust-free:
I have some basic, very clean black door cards that you can have cheap. They're OE cards that were once red and have been reupholstered in smooth black. Passenger one has a mirror hole, so you'd have...

The factory 16V roof antenna has a booster built in. There's a little wire that hitchhikes along with the 75 ohm antenna cable that is used to power that amplifier (booster). I think...
I think she and Sam would hit it off. Sam is a smartie.
I know, I know!
But Sam is such a good sport and traveling companion and even she was like "Do you mean you want to drive all the way there in your car? Wouldn't you rather ride in a nice, new...
Aaaaaand, looks like I'm IN!
Me and the missus (girlfriend - Samantha, aka "Sam") are planning on rolling with the PA/NJ/MD/DE/? group (assuming there is one) and rolling in Friday, hanging for...
Wanted a garage since I was a kid. Took a little to get mine together, but I love it:
