Hi, my name is Rob and this is Bessie! I've seen some really nice cars in this forum and wish to share my pictures with you all. I know very little about Kombis but am learning a lot more in a very small amount of time. Since i bought BESSIE (less than a week ago!!) I have cleaned her out, learn of her driving behavior, repair the drivers window mechanism, fixed a blower fan, working out the washer squirt (still need help with this one), gave her chrome front grill and shiny dome hub caps and many many more little niggly things! Next i'll refurb the inside ... hope to post it on here too one day!Smile I'm also looking to replace the POP TOP CANVAS.... any ides where to get them? DIY? MATERIALS? any help will be much appreciated!! Cheers
rob

Welcome to  KK-nice looking bus and you are not wasting time since you found her Smile
Most quality motor trimmers or caravan poptop makers can help.
If you show your location in Profile you will probably get  more tips.

You could also check our Recommended Repairers section
