    You have:
    1 - a few splitty mirrors
    10 looks like a generator strap..
    9 looks like a cut brake line.....
    the lot look as though they were stripped from a chromed-up/blinged early splitty.
    ....not much help other than that....I'm sure someone will clarify.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Hi David,

    Eight looks like the mouthpiece from a hookah pipe. Sorry I missed you on the weekend. Saw you driving by on a number of occasions. I like your thought re name tags.

    all the best,

    AJD

    No 9 is probably an 1800 or 2000 ltr alternator belt tensioning arm, no 10 I'm guessing is a coil mounting strap, no 7 is a transformer coil generally used in electronic computer controlled engine management type set ups rather than the round oil filled coils used in most points based ignition systems. The other no 9 is possibly a brake pipe that ran from a reservoir tank to the master cyl. No 2 might be one of the old reserve fuel taps out of the very early beetles that didn't have a fuel gauge. No 8 I don't believe is a VW part, it looks like an early lawn mower fuel cut off tap.
    The other No 10 I think is an early quarter window lock, no 6 is possibly a splitty front parking light, and the bit near N0 3 with the tape around it is a number plate light.
    That was fun :lol: the top photo has a 009 (from memory or was it an 019) distributor as it has no vacuum advance unit. Fits the 1600 and earlier engines. The bit in the top left corner looks like it was from a gum tree :lol:

    looking closer, that strange chromes thing (5) is definitely a power steering pump reservoir tank so maybe the chromed pipe (9) and the adjusted arm (9) is probably from that as well.

    Thanks T1 Terry:cool: & for being so gentle about my inability to count to 12:( & identifying so many bits. Thanks to the rest of you also. That was fun:D. If anyone knows a new owner for the now identified parts let me know & they can have for the cost of postage. Reckon I got my bang for buck in the bits I could identify;).
    I think that just leaves 3 & 4? I guess by shape 4 is a bottom entry scuff trim & 3 a self cleaning ashtray for your motorcycle:p:p:rolleyes:!
    Cheers

    That was an interesting box of paraphanalia, you may have picked most of the Volksie bits yourself sorry Terry the splitty park light was in the head light and the flasher didn't have the flange but I agree with the gum tree bits.
    . Interesting stuff though.

    3 looks like a chromed lid off a dual circuit brake master cylinder from Holden missing the rubber surround and also 4 looks like the plates that hold down the scuttle panel rubber seal on HR holden
    and 10 is also HR premier inside door handle?

    No 5 being a Ford power steering reservoir, I reckon No9 the pipe is the inlet pipe to a Stromberg carby for it or a Holden, cut to fit a filter inline.

    Shouldn’t you remove the “VW” from the first post? o_O

    Seems you have just a “box of random stuff off Gumtree”.......:rolleyes:

    Although, I’m sure the “VW” wording in the add, indeed helped the seller to find a buyer.........:p

    Nothing if it's the usual Chinese junk.
    Probably why it's in the box

    There was no 'collusion' in your responses at all;).
