How perfect would this be on Tom’s car?
(edit – just realized Tom’s light is on right, and this is left. But still….)View this post on Instagram
How about this mega-rare NOS Hella VW fog light bumper guard? Check out the VW stamp still visible on the inside, so cool! Only 1, front left. #kaiscollection #vintagetreasures #vwrarestoftherare #nosvw #vwnos #vwaccessories #aircooledaccessories #hella #hayburner #airmighty #hotvws

I’m sure Melvin has delivered these two sick ass VW’s… I’m surprised we haven’t seen a picture or two from the highway!!! 😎
Tom must be out hunting or I am sure we would have heard something by now..

Got my cars home. I put it in the garage since we have 6” of snow. Looks beautiful and purrs like a kitten. Thanks KCW. I will post things up as i get time and the snow melts. I threw my bus in storage due to snow.unkParticipantNovember 12, 2019 at 10:31 amPost count: 396
Hey Franz. Did that mirror ever show up? I did receive the handles. Thanks a lot. they guy did send me a tracking number…I think it was coming from Belgium.FranzParticipantNovember 21, 2019 at 6:30 pmPost count: 5386
Check out what arrived today. It looks good. I can fix it up.
You should be getting that torsion bar any day also.

Thanks Franz. I appreciate it. This car has parts sourced from Belgium, Switzerland, Australia and Germany. Pretty cool.ColeBModeratorNovember 22, 2019 at 9:11 amPost count: 2626FranzParticipantFebruary 15, 2020 at 8:12 pmPost count: 5386
I’ve had this on the back of my bench for a few days. Tom gave a guy in Belgium $1000 for it. Converting to RHD. Luckily, tom had a portion of his original in addition to the complete unit from Belgium.
Check out how small that passenger visor is. I replaced the plastic with a cut down WW unit.
All the chrome and aluminum polished nicely.

I was just messing around yesterday, things went smoothly, I was excited to finish this morning. Short visor (10 3/4″) riveted together with cut down plastic.
Check out the profile and screw depth difference on the lower edge. Base in the foreground look rookie-built.
To reverse the visor and mirror I had to drill/tap a 5mm for a set scew on the opposite side.
And a new set screw dimple in the chrome shaft for the mirror.
