PostSubject: Volkswagen Type-181/182 Restoration Parts Web Resources    Tue Mar 12, 2013 3:58 pm

Many of the VW 181/182 enthusiasts among us suffer the scarcity of Thing/Trekker/Safari Parts (i.e. more than Beetle enthusiasts) during restorations. Some web resources such as The Thing Shop or Thing Parts dot Com or Kublemann's ROMTOC are pretty familiar but mostly, that is about it.

To tell you the fact, there is more to it than just the above listed suppliers. So I thought it would be a great idea to consolidate all the known (by me) VW181/182 Parts Web Resources in one single place to help ppl find the parts they would be requiring for their VW181/182 restorations. So here are a few listed down below:

Germany: Baltic-Kaefer, VW Teile Ralf Kurschewitz, Die Kuebelecke, (For Lockable Door Map Pockets & more Metal Parts) Maik Potter/u-m-p.de
U.S.: The Thing Shop, Thing Parts dot Com, Kublemann's ROMTOC, German Motorworks, Das Tank,  Anthony Basso's Swiss Cheese Mats
France: U.S. Off Road Center, (For Set of Side Window Curtains) MecaUnik
Belgium: (For Common Parts with VW ILTIS) ETS Sonnet
U.K.: Parts Empoirum, (For Full Restoration Stainless Steel Bolt Kit) VolksBolts
Denmark: (For Convertible Top Mechnism Resto Rivets) Killer Products

Will edit this post shortly, have to organize the resources a little better in my own directory before I could post these here. Stay tuned.

MOD Edit:
Post now "Pinned". All contributors to this post contributing web resources on VW181 Restoration Parts would be credited by the Admin on the Thread.

PostSubject: Air-Cooled Type-181/182 Parts Manual & Parts Interchangeability    Wed Mar 13, 2013 1:47 am

Before you could use any of the above Restoration Parts Web Resources, you would need to find its original VW Part # to be 100% sure that you're ordering the part that you need. For this purpose you can refer to VW181/182 Parts Manual located here: VW181/182 Parts Manual

Some very valuable information on the subject of VW181/182 Parts Interchangeability with other Aircooled VW models is located here: VW181/182 Parts Interchangeability Guide & here: Beetle to Thing Swapable Brake Parts
