New Mr.Beam camping lantern
Took our new Mr.Beams lantern camping this weekend, one of the nicest lamps we have ever owned as the glow is nice and subtle, very ambient for a chilled camping evening! If only the sun had also shone! USB port allows for multiple charges for devices and still provides you with hours of bright LED light. These lanterns are available in our webshop (and have just been reduced!) - They get our vote!!! ..

Sugar Coated Mefro
Ok, well not quite sugar coated but sweet as! We ust got these #Syncro #Mefro's back from powder coating and we think they look the business! We stock both 15" & 16" to fit your T25 Westfalia and Syncro. They ship in standard steel finish but find they look tired after 18 months or so.  By powder coating them first it ensures they still look at good in 3 years as they day you fitted them.  So long as you look after them of course! ..

Well the entire Coast VW team have definitely earnt themselves a few beers this weekend as yet another classic Volkswagen restoration project has reached completion. It has been with us for 6 months and in this time been transformed into a truly spectacular vehicle (even if we do say so ourselves:) ). Where to start…?
