    This is a thread to show a few little jobs and things that I have made for the VW community and some of the jobs that might just be interesting.

    I have a nice presence in the community on FaceBook but not everybody is interested in FB.

    I have been a member of the Kombi Club since 2010 and feel that this is a way to "give back" in some way.

    Most may know that I recondition VW Kombi Sliding Door Hinge Units and a few members have exchange units on there vans, with great results.

    Looking forward to showing you some of the things that can be made at Malcolm Engineering.

    Thanks

    This is the roller spacers for the bottom roller of the sliding door these help lift the door and adjust the gap at the top of the door. With these spacers the door can be adjusted from 1mm to 6mm in 1mm increments.

    Malcolm Engineering Wide 5 Wheel Balance Adaptor Plate.

    This Balance Plate will fit all VW Wide 5 Wheels with 12mm or 14mm threads.

    This is perfect for the splitty owners on here.

    Simply use your existing wheel bolts and have your new tyres balanced at any tyre store you choose. DSCN4369 15%.jpg DSCN4375 15%.jpg DSCN4132 15%.jpg

    Yes mate, you can talk and deal with me direct for exchange unit.

    Just trying to expand, some people feel more comfortable dealing with a large company.

    Same quality product, now available in two locations.

    Sure can, let me know when you are ready for a recondition.

    This would be a recondition not exchange, that way we can keep the originals on your kombi.

    Here's a nice little story:

    A customer (recommended from Kombi Club) arranged a exchange Hinge Unit from me.
    When his Unit arrived it was a deluxe microbus Hinge Unit with chrome u-bolt, so with a strip down, clean and refit to the exchange Hinge Unit, we now have a reconditioned chrome u-bolt Sliding Door Hinge Unit heading out to this beautiful Kombi.

    This is a little job I do for Nils at NLA Autoparts.

    T3 throttle bodies, I machine out the bore to accept the new butterflies so Nils can recondition and assemble as needed.

    Contact Nils at NLA Autoparts for more information on a reconditioned T3 throttle body.

    * Kombi Club Exclusive *

    VW Kombi Sliding Door Hinge Unit Replacement Roller Housing.

    Malcolm Engineering has been working on developing a replacement roller housing, due to almost all exchange Hinge Units having broken Roller Housings and these are hard to find unbroken.

    These will be available on exchange Hinge Units after some extensive testing.

    This is about V5 and all seems to be doing what its ment to do, "swish bang".
