I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

Hi! My name is Carol. I am looking for a reliable and reasonably priced VW mechanic in the Savannah GA area. I have a 1971 bus that has dead AZ tags and a salvage title. I need to have it inspected in order to license it. To pass inspection it needs to have the blinkers fixed, neither works, they did in the beginning (4years ago) then, something happened and they stopped. Need to make sure the brake lights are good too. My horn needs to work and my right windshield wipers needs some minor stuff done to it. I haven't been able to drive it for almost 2 years but she runs well, just needs to get rolling again. Anyone know where I can find help? I'm use to having my bus family in Tucson around and never having her idle for long but, I don't personally know anyone on the east coast. Once I get her rolling, I hope to meet some of you folks at some of the camping trips in the future !

If i have to replace my fridge in the 85 Vanagon, any ideas, because that Dometic RM 182 B is no longer manufactured, and the replacements are slightly different dimensions. HELP!

Looking for one that can hold a 15 inch tire (about 28 inches) One with a flat face would be ideal. If you only have the face, even better as I already found a ring.

Just about all of the conversion vans (GM, Ford & Dodge ) built back in the 80s and 90s used this type of spare tire cover, and most had 15" tires. The junk yards should be full of them if they haven't already been sent to the crusher.

hey snoopy, the rav 4 covers aren't entirely flat... they have an indented swoosh on several years models... just fyi if you go that route.

personally I like the look of the Isuzu trooper tire cover, but they are just too big for a bus wheel/tire. However if you wanted to make it work you could always find a junk tire of the trooper size and sawzall out the sidewall and slip it over your spare before putting the cover on.
