    Hi Nils,
    I've seen around the forums on various topics that you're the guru to talk to about brake upgrades.
    I've got an 89 syncro that I've just had the rear drums completely redone and I'm not satisfied of the braking capabilities if I had to make an emergency stop Would you be able to help out with an upgrade, I'll take anything, information, a kit, etc.
    I've read T4 disc upgrades are the goods?
    Cheers, Alex

      Hi Mike,
      I'll get to working on the 312mm rotors, the brake hoses I can make up myself. Do the old rotors for cutting into have to be any year/model. Could I just get some from a 2wd? Thanks Nils!

    Hi Syncro,


    I have seen in previous threads that you have a set of 15" rims with original centres. I am planning to do the same. Are you able to share photos of your van?

    Cheers

    I am buying a 1975 VW Kombi this Saturday. What do i need to do to get a Historic number plate?

      You need to be in a car club that is registered to do historical scheme with the RMS . Do you have a car club in your area,in mind talk to them about your requirements.As each club have different requirements.to get historical rego with that car club Where did the car come from (state) and is it registered already .You will need a pink slip if already registered or from NSW.

    G,day, I was reading conversations you had in regards to your Kombi and the heaterboxes in your exhaust etc. I am thinking of flicking mine in the bin and getting a new exhaust as they rattle and there simply is no need for a heater in Brisvegas. How did you get on? cheers Scott.

    Hi Nils Thanks for the reply I have a Syncro but don't think the roof grab handles are from the Syncro I managed to get one off without it falling to bits I could send it to you if that would help, if so where do I send to .
    Cheers Bob

      Thinking you may have a traķka or something like that? Have you tried posting a thread i the T3/4 forum here? The blokes here are really knowledgeable on where to find stuff that you may have come up dry yourself. I mention this as it will be cheaper than me making them.
      Throw me photo before you spend your hard earned cash.

      Hi Bob, I have no doubt I can make something pretty close to original. Though without any idea what it looks like or what size it is I can't give you any more info. What kind of bus do you have?
