    we certainly will keep an eye out for you we are going to cockle this weekend if the weather keeps nice, our very first trip in Lily(kombi) don't know how I'll go as there is more to me than the average women and that bed in the back is only soo big just as well I have a slim hubby but it will be cosy.
    cheers

    Hi Kaye & Rex,
    You can buy them new from Kendalls Caravan supplies in Derwent park. Look them up in the phone book, as I can't remember the exact address. I was out there looking at some stuff & found one that is an exact copy & they also have all the fitting hinges etc. I didn't need it & Tara was after one, so I told her & she grabbed it. I am assuming they will be able to order another one in for you.
    Give Tara a message, as I am not sure how they went fitting it. She is away at the moment, camping at "Jeanneret's Beach" in the Bay Of Fires up on the East Coast............My old beach...Grrrrrrrrrrrrr (Long story).
    Goodluck,
    Rob J

    Hi Kaye,
    you guys should come down & meet up with us at Salamanca. Saggas is always there, Tara & Ola too. Most of the others come quite a bit, so there is usually always about 4 or 5 there. I myself, AGAIN can't make it this week, as I am away with Ten Days. Last week, so should be able to get down the following week.
    As for bagging Fords, of course I am joking. Here is a pic of my old XK. Better than it lookks in the pics, this car was mint.

    Hi Kaye,
    every Thursday. But it sounds like we will have to sort out a special day to catch up with you. Will talk to the others & see what we can come up with.

    Pop top hatch

    A few years back I was in Kings Trailers in Florence Steet Moonah and they had a few Kombi pop top hatches. I bought one of them. It might be worth seeing if they have any more.

    Hi Ed, of course you are, Jeremy too.
    You like VWs & Kombis, you are part of the Hobart crew. I just need to get my shite together & get it sorted. Will get Tara to weave her organising skills & we should be set.

    Andrew is gonna be there too.
