Nope Cool

Junior and I are off on a boys trip tomorrow on the new Air France A380 to New York. We've been wanting to fly on the new double decker ever since we saw it at Farnborough 2006. Tomorrow we get to do it Very Happy

Where did you get you wheels from. Looking to get some white ones just like them, not sure wether to paint mine or get new ones.

Hey - painted by the previous keeper just before I took over ownership - did the bumpers at the same time - so that was lucky for me Very Happy

Danbury are bound to have a load of spare wheels and tyres from folk who spec alloys - I seem to remember they had a load for sale on their stand at Vanfest last summer. Why don't you give them a buzz and see if they'd do you a "deal" on a set you could then get painted?

Painting yours would probably work out at about 60 quid a wheel - bearing in mind to do it properly the tyres would need to come off....

PostSubject: Trip to Colbornes last night   Max - my Brazilian VW Bay EmptyWed Apr 14, 2010 2:23 pm

I wanted to give Max a run to test the electrickery tinkering I'd been doing - so we headed to Colbornes in Guildford. They are the original Volkswagen importers to the UK. Used to be in Ripley, Surrey - but that's a housing estate now so here they are on the Slyfield Industrial Estate. My mum's Mk6 Golf Estate was supplied by their Hersham branch in February - all the way from where it was built - Mexico!!

It is funny that on some of the other vw frums that exist much complaint is made about mexican and brazilian steel being inferior to mid 70's german steel - yet most of vw world wide steel supply is sourced from Thyssenskrupp and is a mix of german, brazilian and a very small amount of american steel and oddly has been that way since the 1970's.

So there is as much chance of a German body part from the mid 70's being barzilian as there is of a brazilian body part now being german - thyssenkrupp have never differentiated between identical european or brazilian flat roll products
