Trying to help a buddy with his 88 Vanagon. He bought it with most of the dash missing and he's done a decent job piecing it together but we can't find anyone that sales the twist lock bulb holders. If tried to search and haven't come up with much. Anyone know where we can buy them?

Many people replace the oem units with LEDs as the gauge cluster is more visible. http://www.van-cafe.com/ and http://www.gowesty.com/ offer kits or you can source them yourself.

Subaru consoles. Hit the junkyard. I have a bag of them from my last trip. Filled my pockets with em. Also found an unused in bag vanny Jack and an original tool kit.

I picked some up at the dealer a while back. I think $2 each. I recall MK2 Jettas and Golfs used the same bulbs, but if you're digging around at the wreckers they are a little harder to get at.
