Leaky pipes, black white mold on lp tank
maverickyaboot
Hello, just bought a new vanagon and it looks like theres some leaks underneath the van. I suspect it is the fuel lines but my local vw repair shop is charging 1700 for them to replace it. Can you please identify these leaks and if it's possible for me and my wife to fix it. Thank you very much. If anyone can help I'm located in alaska 30 mins north of anchorage. [

RHD woodgrain vinyl dash
Andy_bart
Thought I'd share info on DIY woodgrain dash as no RHD moulds available. Found a vinyl that's similar to original, called 3M Di Noc fine wood FW-1738vinyl, (they have many other colours). Clean dash, make sure smooth as shows up any imperfections. Stretch and lay flat on dash with backing removed. Very short bursts of of heat gun to mold with your fingers and aim for no wrinkles. My other cars got it on the dash and its still good after a year of Australian summer! IMO looks way better than the plastic ones available.

Windshield trim option
FoxBiz
I wanted traditional trim for my KG including the windshield where the PO installed Cali molding. I wasn't ready to spend $$$ for new molding and trim. This is 1/4" flexable, self sticking, chrome body molding. Looks pretty good! We'lol see how,long it holds up. Used light swipe of acetone to clean the rubber. Let me know what you think!

While the grille fit pretty decent considering, the body had to be narrowed about 3/4 of an inch and the front of the car body cut back about 4 inches. I also cut relief cuts into the floor section in the nose so the body could be narrowed

I literally cut the nose off of the whole front body section. I reinstalled the front hood drip moldings. I used a long threaded rod to pull the two body sides narrower and then glassed the nose cap back in 4 inches farther back.

The original Mercedes grille actually worked perfectly by sitting it over the lip of the original from hood drip rail.

While the grille fit pretty decent considering, the body had to be narrowed about 3/4 of an inch and the front of the car body cut back about 4 inches. I also cut relief cuts into the floor section in the nose so the body could be narrowed

I literally cut the nose off of the whole front body section. I reinstalled the front hood drip moldings. I used a long threaded rod to pull the two body sides narrower and then glassed the nose cap back in 4 inches farther back.

The original Mercedes grille actually worked perfectly by sitting it over the lip of the original from hood drip rail.
