^^^^ Echo the comments above on the relay - never knew this existed, so it's now on the shopping list.

I also admire your restraint with the flying tent issue and damage to the new paint - I am not sure that I would have been able to manage my emotions quite so eloquently/calmly as you have described given the wait and anticipation. My ES goes in next spring for its body restoration which will inevitably bring a new level of paranoia as to where I park it. Hopefully the Westy will go in the following year for the same treatment....

Love the Orly Blue and love the end result - congrats!

Nick--One of the great things about your 45 pages is it is a wonderful combo blog and mechanical experience column. I won't say posts as it has gone way beyond that and rhere are a number of us who appreciate what you have done and the experiences you have shared.

So two reasons for this currennt comment. 1. We need an index that somehow will guide us towards the posts that could help the rest of us ignorant dudes figure out how to profit from your experience. Wandering through 45 pages hoping to find the exact spot is a bit tedious to say the least. And number the next--2--I believe--is what are you up to? We miss your adventures, such as the proposed drive up Mt. Washington--and hope your have been able to enjoy your shiny new Pippen. In this covid time, getting out of town, or off island, and seeing parts of the world that still exist such as the Flume in Franconia Notch, which my wife and I just did, help maintain some of the sanity we used to take for granted.

My current dreams. Sound proofing, softer ride for a passenger with a bad back, finishing up the 12 and 120 volt wiring and of course repairing all the various things which have been put off such as the DS electric window repair. (Using a temp boat pilot house drop window solution which works so well am tempted to just keep it as is.)

Anyhow, let us know what is happing and what you are planing.

Duncan

Coqwesty, thanks for your comments. I guess I was happy that this mangled flying mess of metal and sunbrella didnt end up denting a large body panel. It could have been way way worse and oddly, I had a sense of calm come over me at the realization that I already got my first ding out of the way. I was parked in the same spot (you think Iíd learn) just yesterday and this moped parked right next to me. I almost blew a gasket at the site as i went into a diatribe to my wife about how some jackass was going to walk by with a beach chair, hook the side mirror on the moped and tip the stupid thing over right into the van. My wife said, instead of giving this guy the hairy eyeball, just move the van over. Great idea, so i scuttled the van over a couple of feet, away from the moped and my blood pressure went back to normal. The tent incident did teach me to be slightly more proactive, choose your parking spots wisely (not that I chose wisely yesterday) but not to let it stress me out too much. My main reason for doing the paint job was to arrest the hands of time, and to stop any rust before it started to take hold. I still want to use the van and not have to worry too much about it.

Duncan, i must say that this corona thing has really put a hold on a lot of our travel plans unfortunately. Also, i almost feel like ive been cheating on miss pippen lately because after 6 years of being yard bound, we finally got our boat back in the water. Last weekend we motored over to cuttyhunk for the day to meet up with my brother for a sail on his 37 foot sailboat. A great day for sure and the boat has given us some safe travel alternatives lately.

I also have a couple small projects to take care of in the van before our next road trip. I have to redo the rear wheel bearings which were just replaced last November. Not sure why they failed but they are under warranty and new ones are in route. Also, i just ordered gowestys printed circuit board for the instrument panel. Since the paint job and the dash removal for the break booster, the gauges have been acting a little funny and ive narrowed it down to the foil. All i have to do is touch certain areas of the foil and the gauges react. Gowesty has been out of the printed boards but just got them back in stock.

You do bring up a good point about the thread and it being hard to find certain things. Some day, i will put together a comprehensive, chronological list of everything that has been done to the van and hopefully someone can find it useful.

Im sure we will soon resume our vanagon travels. We all miss it dearly though we have really been enjoying the van here on island. Just yesterday we parked at a beach on a blustery day, popped the top and watched a movie with the kids. Normally we use the van as a sort of base camp for their day at the beach and we are out surfing, fishing or just hanging on the beach, but this day we really had fun hanging inside watching a movie.

Hope your are well and glad youre getting out and about!

Wow, Nick--Thanks for all the mod info. That must have take a fair amount of time to just list everything. Didn't mean to have you spend so much time doing it, but thanks and I'm sure everyone else will appreciate it as well.

I've been able to do a fair amount of travel/camping lately and it has been great. In fact we just got back home today after a mini trip up north. In late spring when it became clear that I wasn't going to put my boat in the water, I felt the urge to smell some ocean and see some boats so drove over to Camden, Maine for a couple of days. Never got out of the car except to visit kids and friends from 10 feet away while wearing masks. (Except see below.) Took food with me.

Did have one experience which might be helpful to some. Rained hard on the way over and coming into Camden, the car started to buck and the fuel pump been making noise for a while before that. Was going to call the guys at FAS, but my daughter knew of a Vanagon guy in Belfast. It's called the Beetle Shop and the guy was super. With no appointment, he dropped everything to get me back on the road. For anyone finding themselves in the area, I recommend him as he definitely knows what he is doing. In one of his bays, he was converting an air-cooled tiptop into a WBX pop top. Car had been stripped and perfectly painted inside and out. I had just replaced the fuel pump, but luckily the mechanic said I had a no-name brand. He has had a bunch of trouble lately with Bosch and said don't buy them. The problem turned out to be failed grommets at the roll-over valve in the gas expansion tanks behind the wheels. The tires threw up water which then got into the system. He didn't have any spares, but bypassed the tanks until my BD units arrived which I installed back in New Hampshire. He said this is an often overlooked maintenance problem and they should be replaced about every three or four years. He drained out all the water and replaced the filter. He recommends another filter ahead of the pump too. So add this to your list everyone.

Abscate, I was going to drop you a line to see if you were around but our day was pretty jammed pack. Could definitely try in September. Hoping my next home build doesnít start for a few more weeks. Construction permits have been slow coming these days.

Duncan, no problem it really didnít take that long and we had a rainy day yesterday so it was perfect. I had been meaning to do this for a long time so Iím glad you brought it up. If one person benefits from the list then it was well worth the time. If I get inspired, Iíll put the page numbers where mods can be located in the thread to make it easier to reference things.

Iíve been to the Beetle shop in Belfast (they were closed at the time) and saw the grey Syncro tin top that was for sale (for sale again and listed on the samba.) it looks like they do great work. Glad he was able to help you out. Iím going to say that there was probably a zero % chance that someone not well versed in vanagons could have pinpointed that problem. I would have thought O2 sensor or vanagon syndrome/allrflow meter or something but would have had a hard ten zeroing in on the issue that you had. Glad you got it all sorted out.

Weíve been dying to get off island for a trip but this week three steamship employees tested positive for corona and theyíve cancelled man boats because of it. Still hoping for a trip in September. Will have to wait and see.

How long ago? I wonder if we were selling to Larsens at the same time. As a young teen i used to make some summer money spearfishing for tautog and Iíd sell to Betsy. She would always say, ďheadshots only.Ē We got pretty good at it. We would dive up and down the north shore hunting the boulders for tautog. We then graduated to rod and reel fishing for striped bass and did very well in the early 90s when they opened up the commercial season on bass. Me and a buddy used to fish all night long out of zodiacs on the south shore and made a great living selling bass until word started getting out. We had a few years to ourselves before a lot of the island kids started to catch on. I felt lucky to have experienced the bass boom in the early 90s. These days are nothing like back then but im sure the cycle will return some day. Right now, its Black Sea bass, they are everywhere. The striped bass population is so low that they have taken the species out of the derby this year to take some pressure off on the species.


Mid 90s-early 2000s so we probably were, its been a couple years since I have been back out there. I may have tossed my brother off that dock a into menemsha harbor a couple times.... he totally deserved it. The Quitsa Strider/Unicorn still tied up down there? We had a house on the dirt road that looped around behind the Aquinnah police and fire station/playground recently I found my old wallet and it still had my library card from that tiny little library. Learned to surf on Philbin beach and would poach some of the private beaches down in chilmark. I had pretty good luck with striped bass last summer on the MA NH line, pogeys/menhaden were super thick though. The menhaden fishery down south is really killing the stripers.

So i have been experiencing some grinding noises from the rear wheels and as it turns out, the rear wheel bearings that I replaced last November both crapped out on me. Not sure what caused this but im hoping it was just bad parts and not my housings. If it happens again, ill start to consider the housings. Stub axles look to be in good shape. The parts were still under warranty so I was able to get a set of replacement bearings. After replacing the bearings the noise is gone so Im good for now, back on the road after a quick 4 day hiatus. Im sure i could have driven the van but didnt want to cause any more possible damage.

After I replaced a second rear bearing that again crapped out, I bit the bullet and replaced the housing. Most likely that is your problem.

Yah thatís what Iím fearing, though Iím trying to look at these types of situations as an opportunity to refresh or upgrade. Iíve been eyeing up Burleyís housing that you can order with a set of bearings. If it happens again, Iíll probably pull the trigger on this setup. What did you end up going with?

Took the van to the local pop up drive in last night with the kids. We ended up in the cheap seats because it was sold out so they placed us off to the side. It ended up working out great because when we popped the top we could see over the string lights that were in front of us. My buddy parked next to us with his toyota Hiace fire truck. A very Doka-like vehicle. He ended up finding it in Seattle for 12k with 9000 miles on it. Iíll post a photo when I can.

I got around to replacing my old blue foil circuitry with the gowesty printed circuit board. So thankful we have a company that is putting out fixes and improvements like this. My blue foil somehow got fried (everything worked fine before paint but when I got the van back the dash lights didnít work, the tach wouldnít work with the brights on and the fuel gauge was off. After the install of the pcb everything works as it should.

Hey! You even have a working digital clock! I can't ever remember mine working in any of my T3's.

I'm toying with the idea of black on white gauges. Have you ever run into anyone with that or who could do it?

I think I have seen a kit somewhere. Let me do some poking around. It may have been a custom, one off sort of thing. Those plasma gauges look pretty nice. A stock look with some backlighting.

Also, I did buy a new lcd display for the clock A while back. my original crapped out but I really liked having the clock. i just added that one to my master list of parts and mods.
