Do you need help with the naming?

I'm sure we can all help out! Twisted Evil

FAB looking Kombi Cool


Doo you think it is a boy or girl for naming purposes?


If a girl, perhaps Marina - based upon that FAB Aqua colour and the 60's character from Stingray!

yep, i`ll put that forward

my wife thinks it`s a boy my eldest thinks it`s a girl, I`m not sure - on the one hand cars are normally described as her on the other hand I'm already outnumbered 3 to 1 so another male in the family . . . .

Okay.... I'll say it..... Kombi McKombiface? Laughing joking Smile

Our bus is called Phileas as we reckon it takes us 80 days to get anywhere Laughing

Have you any inspiration from the letters on the number plate?

A lovely looking bus by the way!

Suggest you fold the canvas inside the roof when you bring the poptop down - it will stop it getting dirty and getting rubbed between the body and poptop.

Perhaps you could consider 'Kai' as your Kombi name.
Reasoning: Keeping with the 'aqua theme' Kai is a 'unisex' Hawaiian name, meaning ‘ocean’ - although Kai is most commonly used for boys!
(it also has other meanings in other languages)

Or perhaps Wade as a 'boys' name, you see where this is flowing! Wink

You also may want to spin the spare wheel cover so that the clasp is at the bottom. That way when water gets into the cover - which it will when you wash your BraziBay or it rains - the water will drip out of the bottom opening, rather than slosh about and against the front panel. Basketball

Keep the locking clasp well lubricated. study

Name decided, he's called Larry.

Suggested by a friend of mine, I met my wife and most of my friends through clubs and music and I'm a huge fan of NY disco. One of my hero's was a dj called Larry Levan.

Looks like an air-cooled van to me. The spare wheel clip will rub on the bumper if you put it right on the bottom. I ended up taping ours up to stop it but it didn't work. Currently have the cover off.
Our pop top material at the front has a nice curved mark from too many times leaving a little sticking out.

Not necessarily. Depends on where the mount is fitted on the front panel. The clip on mine was clear of the bumper when I had the hard spare cover fitted. I've also rotated a number of other covers for people and this hasn't been an issue.

Thanks both, the space on the bottom of mine does look tight but I'll check

Scooby has plenty of clearance between the bumper and the wheel cover.

Checked mine today, judging by the marks on the front bumper I'm guessing it didn't fit and was moved
