Mechanically, I believe my '69 Variant is "pretty" sound. Jim may confirm
or deny. ??? But I'm considering having a "restoration shop" do some work
on my car. Things I CAN'T, UNQUALIFIED or UNABLE to do.
However on a related issue, ALL of the companies that claim to stock and
sell T-3 parts, do y'all ... (anyone?) ... have a compiled list of what
reliable companies, have what parts?
Samba (of course)
Private parties (also)
Wouldn't that be a useful list for a lot of us?
