[url=https://servimg.com/view/19743271/110][/url]After selling our t4 & t25 
& purchasing our great little Brazilian bay window 
Spending a small fortune on her we may have to sell it ☹️

We bought it for the intentions of both being able to drive her but with my wife's rheumatoid arthritis severe in both hands she does not have the strength in her left hand to opperate the hand brake ☹️
With the prices so random 
I wonder iff any of yourself she could point us in the direction of prices please 
It's registered in1993 
But I think it could of been converted in 1997 
We're the second owners 
It's had loads of money spent 
Drives runs & stops like a dream

You've spent so much on this Kombi, surely it would be worth investing in the electric hand brake function, which another member on here had installed on their BraziBay.  Maybe Litesteer too.

It would be a shame Sad ; at Volksworld I spent some time chatting to the people who fitted your auto fire extinguisher.

Tim's suggestion looks a good move; I didn't even know such a thing existed.

It would be a shame to sell after all you have done - doo explore all options - but we can understand your circumstances.

All the best whatever decision you make. Smile

We're going to look into the power handbrake 
Has anyone on here had a electric power steering conversion? 
We had one fitted on our t25 But that was a steering rack not a box
Iff we did go down the route of putting her up for sale 
Not the wife lol
Our bay 
What would all your thorts be for prices please 
I know it's insured valued at £12995. 
But would you say it's value is more or less ??

Less. Sorry. I think at the moment you’d be lucky to get more than £8k.

I suggest you go for the modifications.

Hi Les
I've had the LiteSteer conversion done to our van soon after we got the van in 2016 and it is a marvel. I too have RA and I'd had difficulty driving the van. The LS conversion has made it so much easier. The van still wanders but when parking and making turns around tight corners, mini-roundabouts etc it is as light as a feather. The LS website shows a van being steered with the palm of a hand to demonstrate how little effort is needed.

All the best
Pete

Thoroughly recommend Litesteer too. Neil has approved fitters around the country. South West Volkswagens in Devon is your nearest.
