It is a So.Cal. vanagon now, and the texas twang (and fine dirt) is just about wrung out of it.
Plan to convert to a series hybrid (diesel/electric) when the heads start leaking coolant.

Those are Merc 16" wheels from a 280C.. The 280 rears are 17", so 4 fronts are required to do this job.

they wont leak coolant if you buy the right kind from an authorized vw dealer

My Syncro started life as a hard top. It's been a year-long conversion/restoration project.

The short list includes new paint, Rhino liner, all new rubber and seals, custom bumpers, decoupler, AA transmission with new 3rd & 4th gear sets, Recaros, custom cabinetry, and interior, SS coolant lines, hi-power headlights, Hella 500s, jail bars… Currently waiting on finishing up 2.5 Subaru install and custom upholstery, and tires/wheels.

I'll let you know once I get it back from Rocky Mountain Westy. Mike has it for a few more weeks. Wanted to go the Greese Works TDI route, but couldn't swing the cost.

BMW Wheels, nice Very Happy They often have high ETs so are relatively simple to place with the right spacers.

Just registered, sold my UrS6 to buy a Westy. Picked this beauty up from a member here on the Samba out of Winterpeg. She needed some TLC in a few areas. (brakes, a good cleaning, new pop tent....on route)

Pic from the drive home after I bought it. Dad's UrS6 running chase.

Painted the bumpers and added a rock painted strip to tie the front and back together visually. Also added a set of BBS RY's (rare, 2 pc Euro-Merc wheels) from the old S6 as the new owner didn't want them....fun with spacers. Cool
