Hi there,

Long time lurker, first time poster...

I'm looking for a couple of white rubber trim bits for my 76 Westy. The first is the white rubber trim that goes along the rear lip of the opening to the upper bunk. Mine has shrunk and cracked so much that I don't think any amount of warming and stretching will ever make it look right.

The other is the white rubber trim bit that goes directly above the lower sliding door track.

I've looked on the BD, WCM, and WW websites, but I can't find these rubber trim bits. Does anyone know a source for these?

Pictures are below (or above, not sure where they'll show up!).

Many thanks!

Alex

Here you go; NLA VW here in the UK sell them, I have used both pieces on our westy and they fit really well.

With this one, below, be careful as its quite stiff and you could easily snap it. It doesnt come pre drilled, you need to drill the holes.

It might be worth calling BusLab in Berkeley CA.
They quite often carry obscure parts from Europe, but don't have them posted on their website.
