This Volkswagen T3 14" Syncro is showing a nice rear set up with a T4 rear disc conversion and Fox suspension kit - a great combination!

Happy Monday! Sorry for the lack of blog posts over the previous few months......it's been a little hectic in the CoastVW workshop over the summer months but we have worked on some really exciting projects and are bursting at the seams with current projects so watching this space and we will start filling you in! :)
Just in is one of our old favourite Syncro's…..now up for sale with the spec sheet being typed up in the next few days. If you've always wanted a 16" Syncro act quick as it wont be around for long...….all enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
Off for interior units and upholstery before returning to us for final fit. Customer has chosen to use Dubteriors and we cant wait to see what it looks like on its return......and then we can go on a photo shoot :)

The CoastVW team have been investigating a leaking roof on this Volkswagen T3 Westfalia high top. We decided to take the roof of to make a clear assessment of how bad the damage is. #coastvw #vwt3roofrepairs #vwt3camperleakingroof..
This VW T3 14" Syncro Doka has just had a 2.5ltr Subaru engine fitted and is off for a test drive :)
Camping pod has arrived at CoastVW ready to fit into a Volkswagen T3 14" Syncro, we have also fitted a full width rock'n'roll bed which folds flat (no engine plinth!)
Volkswagen T3 disc brake conversion being fitted, designed to be used with 15" steel mefro's.
This VW T25 RHD 16" Doka is having some brake work, new cylinders (which often leak - check yours!) and new brake shoes - even though it had them fitted elsewhere recently they were all split and cracked :-/
Lots of items back from the powder coaters, including these 14" mefro wheels which are now satin black.
Coast VW has a new toy - VW T25 14" Syncro 2.1 petrol........needs a gearbox rebuild and a lot of other things.......like a Subaru engine conversion ;) !!!!

Still the weather looks good for the whole weekend....Spring camping just around the corner....
The rear suspension turret on this VW T25 16" Syncro had completely rotted away on the inside so we have fabricated a new 3mm plate to fit in, then we could fit the newly powder coated trailing arm and the new suspension. The owner opted for the H&R set up, this gives some flexibility on setting the ride height - and looks good too!
The South African Syncro currently in with us for a body restoration was worse underneath then we had anticipated…Ash gave it a gentle blast with the grit blaster which unveiled all this…
