Rhys @Dusty_Dhobi , welcome to the party that never ends
You'll have to share with us some pictures of your new Kombi ..... start a thread in the Members Ride section
Welcome Rhys to the KC, Enjoy it wherever it takes you. As mentioned above photos are well received around here.
Hi Rhys & welcome to the Kombi Club. Aside from photos could you help me understand your choice of forum name.
Awesome, welcome aboard, lots of great people here @Dusty_Dhobi
Welcome to the club Rhys.
I have worked in Tumut at the Paper Mill off and on since 2001.
Have made many great friends there, two of which own Kombis.
Paul and Chrissie from East Gilmore have a red bus and Geoff Moss's girl Emma from Adelong runs a coffee bus (Lucid) out of Wagga.
We now live in the Campbelltown area of Sydney and often run down Wollongong and Kiama way with our bus on the weekend.
See you on the road mate!
It’s a nickname that I’ve received due to my last name, being Dobbie (which I’ve always pronounce like Dhobi and not like the Harry Potter character) and the slang term for washing powder, being Dhobi Dust
Thank you Dusty person.
Hi guys, my name is Kristin, from Penrith. I have recently come into possession of a 1970 lowlight. It will be a slow rebuild, steep air-cooled learning curve. Plenty of rust to remove from the front half. Original color is Safari Beige.
Welcome Kristin to the KC , It looks like a motley crew colour scheme ,hard to pick your Safari beige 12014. As you have ask questions, there are plenty of clever people on here that can help. Your not that far away from my self.
You also have Bug N buses not that far from your self for mechanical work, You may want to find a Bentley book if you are planning on doing some work yourself. Curve can only go up.
best of luck Wayne
Already have a bentley manual, know a couple of locals with splits and bays aswell.
Kristin, welcome to the party that never ends .
Couldn't let your post remain deleted as it was great to see and a credit to you that your will undertake it's re-birth ..... leave it for all to see and be proud of what you have
Hi All,Brian here from Perth recently picked up a 76 bay window campervan
It's become a bigger resto project than I planned but working my way trough it
Welcome @BrianT. Another Sopru.
Lots of knowledge here.
Post away your photos & questions.
It may be just standard rust area stuff!
Dog legs , foot wells , front floor etc
The floors and dog legs are in very good condition unfortunately the same can't be said for the roof and gutters
Oh My. Was there a fibreglass lid above that destruction?
I'm doubting the 76 build as that's not how they react metally wise!
What's the plate behind the drivers seat say?
Yep has a very poorly installed roof apparently it's an original campervan but with the way roof panel was butchered I don't think it was a professional conversion
Said anyone who's seen a Sopru converion under their pop top!!
Year model from the behind drivers seat plaque?
Will have a look tomorrow
