Hurray, my friend has decided to join the BraziBay team. Can you keep your eyes peeled for any second hand Kombis for sale?

She wants a blue/green colour - teal, so suspect will need a wrap or respray, but will add to the Kombi rainbow of colours!

Anyone thinking of selling, let me know.

Thanks.

Are they looking for air or aqua
If they are strong and may be good at tug of war I would think an aqua bay would be best
Recruiting early!

I wouldn't advise holding out for a particular colour.  Set budget first and if necessary put aside £1500 for a decent lower half respray.  The teal colour you describe is out there but I've only seen a handful, it is lovely looking and suits the BraziBay well.  Such as in this vid:

Cheers Tim - I think that's exactly the colour she has in mind.

Hi - there's one listed on eBay at the moment, it's been on there a while so price may be negotiable.
The item number is: 291048020710
It seems pretty close to a teal colour!

Margot is teal. Sorry to go slightly off topic but do any of you clever people know how I go about finding the colour code as there are a few stone chips we would like to touch up? Thank you.

Good luck 'Hurray', hope you find your Brazibay soon.  Smile

Should be on the nearside headlight bulge, in the cabin.

As sunny says, Gina there should be a sticker that looks something like this.





I just googled LA6M VW and it came back with some sites to get the right colour and touch up paint.

Oops sorry Gina, perhaps I should have said there might be .... instead of should be.  Embarassed 

Can only suggest that you contact Danbury, or whoever did the conversion. I would have thought that they have a note of the paint code used, on their records, in case it was needed to do a match at a later date.

Failing that there are paintshops that can use a machine to photo-analyse the colour on your Kombi.

Before I realised the significance of the sticker I got an analysis done by Carpaint Warehouse in Bristol and they came up with an exact match.

I would imagine there are similar places in your part of the country.

(In view of the reservations above, I'm not saying it is the right colour, but VAG dark teal comes up as LA6U, which may be a pointer to what you could be looking for, obviously doing an exact match against your paintwork first.)

I'm sure Danbury will have all the details you need for your colour match Rolling Eyes Laughing

Hi gordanmac,

I know its not teal, but theres a red 2006 air coooled listed on gumtree in Bothwell. Fairly pricey at £26K, but its a very high spec and has been listed before so there may be a deal to make. Also gives your friend a chance to look at another bus fairly close to home.

Good luck with the search!

Something makes me think this is an ex-rental Kombi. The pics tend to give it away. No problem with that, just keep it in mind when haggling.
