As we all know, finding parts for our Barndoors can be an elusive and and expensive proposition. Keeping track of who makes what can be quite a challenge. This thread is intended to list the latest sources for the hard to find parts. I was inspired to start this thread seeing that one of the harder parts to find has been repopped....the center blanking plate.

Here is a start to the listing of parts and sources. Feel free to add to the list:

The guy selling the rear lights was Duncan Fagg, lives in Portugal. He also has seat/interior panel material.

Brian McCue also does rear light brackets in copper, excellent quality imo

If you need some nice pressed bumper splash pans, contact Mark Rafferty at [email protected]
I just got a set for my '58 and they are spot on.
He makes pressed bumper truck splash pans too.

I am in a desperate need for correct rear corners. Gerson seems to have removed them from his site. Is there anyone who makes them with the correct pressing for the reflex and all?

I talked to Autocraft and they cold do the complete body rear corner but I just need the lower part...

who makes the Alum interior trim to go around the bottom portion of the door panels on standard and Deluxe buses. Also, I have seen repro rubber inserts for the door panels also sold in a roll. Who has that? I forgot to ask when I saw it.

Jason, I don't know of an accurate reproduction for the aluminum trim. Later buses have similar molding that could be used.

Deluxe vent trim clips are here: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=538514

I have some used trim pieces if you are in need. Orchard Supply Hardware has the black rubber matting. I believe this is the same material for the early cab floor mats.

What does the black rubber matting start life as or what use is it supplied for, so i can keep my eye out over here for a correct design to cut up to use.

thanks

It's called "Runner". It's normally just for protecting floors.

I think there are a few places in the uk that sell the ribbed rubber matting on big rolls Mark, but wollies springs to mind:
