    Hi Guys. I recently acquired 82 Aircooled T3 with Trakka conversion. Being new to Kombis I was wondering if there is an experienced forum member somewhere nearby Northern Sydney that would be willing to run their eye over my T3 and give me a frank evaluation. Cheers

    G’day Scott.
    I’m at 5 Dock - so not that far.

    I have a 90 Caravelle- but have owned an 82 before.
    I’m no expert on the Trakka side of things but happy to look

    All mine have been autos as well - so limits me on shift experience.

    Is it a driver at the moment?

    Hi Guys. Impressed with the prompt response. It is indeed a driver I drove it down from Evans Head 2 weeks back without issue. In terms of the advice it probably more mechanical/cosmetic I am thinking about. I am regularly up the Central Coast and will be up again around the long weekend at end of Jan. So if it’s OK Phil I will get in touch when plans are more firm. In the meantime if I get a chance I will reach out to Barry and set something up.

    Another T3 owner named Scott.

    I'm also on the Central Coast down the road from Lucky Phil.

    The Central Coast is a bot of a T3 haven so I'm sure you will see a few on your travels up here.
