    Hi there all my name is Gus and i live in Sydneys south west (Picton area)
    Ive been an avid reader on this site for a while now and think its one of the best forums ive seen
    Im looking to get a bay window project that my son and i can rebuild together.Its been about 15 years since i last owned a kombi and am looking forward to getting one again.I dont have a lot of cash so probably a quite rusty one that most people would think not worth restoring will do ,but thats ok because my son wants me to teach him to weld. If any of you have or know of a kombi, preferably a complete one or close to complete please let me know. Hopefully we will document its restoration here on this site. Any info would be appreciated cheers everyone.

    Hey Gus,
    Just gotta be patient......
    Many wait, myself included, for years for the right bus to turn up.
    It might not happen quickly enough but it will happen :cool:
    Welcome to the nut house.......
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Welcome Gus and son, great to see another Wollondilly "Kombi tragic" :D
    Good luck in your search, we spent 8 mths looking and then spent 2 years restoring. Hope to see you score your dream car soon.
    Cheers
    Martin and Kim

    Welcome. One try may be to give Nick a call at Volksparts, 0412 345 126, in Bungendore. I am not sure what he has that would be good for restoration. I have not been out there for a couple of months as we have been on the road.
