I've been shopping for brake parts and have decided on Vintage Parts Inc. in Calif. (web page is out of date) I used them several years ago for parts for my '55, the brake parts are German and at a good price. I can get the parts from my local O'Reilly store but they are chinese and anything that comes from there (china) is junk. I'm still looking for a place to clean the gas tank at but I may do it myself.
I finally got the title in the mail from the previous owner and called a VW friend who is an agent for Collector Car Insurance and it will be insured in a few days then I can title it.

Seperately, the '86 Cabriolet came back from the shop and is running again, it will be cleaned up and put up for sale. The '82 Westy is running fine.
