92 cab I picked it up for appx $1000
It's in pretty good nick ,
I am an oldie of sorts
There is not much history with the car
The wheels I can stand so I will be putting the 14 inch weaves from my e30 on to this

Inside is getting smelly now as its still in my garage ,
And honeslty just not found time to air it ,
But any help and advice is welcomed

Thanks

Nothing to add just the weekly jump start to keep things churning over ,



It's very quite on here
Is everyone sleep until July that when the cabs come out ?

Well that all depends.
Sometimes it is quite quiet except for the hard core few. Then other times there is a lot of traffic.

So please feel free to jump in, make yourself known, and join/create a conversation.


So what are your plans for the Cabby?

Really need to tackle the interior and fumigate disinfect the whole inside
I left it out when I brought it it had a small tear on the fabric side ,
Which caused a mini bath tub inside
Now I have all sorts of mold ,


Will keep you updated when I get back from work

I, for one, am busy with Vanagon stuff these days (just spent a week on the road). That's both a good thing and a bad thing... :lol:

Some things are the same no matter where you are.
Wives tend to want stuff done in the house and think the stuff in the garage doesn't matter. :lol:

I have one on each of my cars and swear by them.

I noticed the difference when I first installed one and simply drove down my street.

Do you need the link?
