    I'm looking for two original tire wrenches, and an old steering wheel rod what goes between the floor and the steering wheel. Also it would be nice to have and old dashboard. I have the main part already what unscrews from the dash and includes the instruments. I only need the rest of the dash....

    Yes! This is exactly what I'm looking for! I'm trying to find one for a while now!

    Can you ask for shipping options? Just pack it up and try UPS or FedEx and if both are too expensive you can still send it to Hungary to my brother's place.

    What is the closest International airport to your house? I fly for free, I could just go over and get it, or my friend John who lives in Denver goes back to the UK often, he could bring it back with him.

    I would most deffenetly pay more for this then £10!

    Can you take a picture of the dash? I don't need the instrument part (unless you don't have a use for it) just the rest if it's the old fashion flat one. It should unscrew from the body. If you cut it into half, It would fit next to the steering shaft? I could weld it back together once here.

    Do you have rims with hubcap holders? They look like the old VW rims with the wide bolt pattern. I would just need the hub cap holder rings off of them IF you can't use them.

    Let me ask my frie d John, he said he knows you...

    Cheers, Peter

    Both Belfast Airports are about 50 miles from me. I will parcel it up and weigh/measure it and then you might be able to find a cheap way of sending it. Royal Mail is easiest but very expensive. Sadly i didn't keep dash as it was different to mine i sold the instruments and scrapped the rest as i don't have much storage space.I have 3 spare rims but i think they are later as there are no clips for hubcaps

    Regardless of weight, what else do you have left of the van what you want to part with? Is there anything what you are looking for and I could help you out with? I'm looking for this steeri g column for a long time now!

    I found a flight to BFS airport, could make a trip, the flight leaves from Newark.
    But sending it to Hungary could be an option as well. My friend is coming next month from Budapest, he could bring it with him.
    Thank you Peter

    I need a gearbox pretty badly! If that's still available, let me know a price and I'll take it!
    Obviously I'll pay for shipping.
