I have a 73 Vw Thing, and when I purchased it all the heater parts have been removed. I tried contacting the previous owner to see why all the heater stuff had been removed. How hard and expensive will it be to locate and reinstall everything? I know it's a very general question but it a possible thing to do without getting screwed?
Your thoughts?

Yes its entirely possible to do.

Weather you do it piece by piece or most all at once it for sure can be done. Last year - and this is not a common thing but two complete units poped up in the box NOS condition.

I got one of them here - http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/album_search.php?...t_dir=DESC

These will fetch in the $500 to even $1000 foe the ambitious. Those listed pics will also aid you in seeing the complete unit and parts - less the cabin ducts.

It may take some diligence but all the stuff is out there. Look for parted Thighs with gas heaters, Ask the seller to pull everything for it.

There are also plenty of "fixit" info here and you tube so you can restore one or three.

I myself have lots of vids and an ongoing thread over in the Bay forum.
