wood-console

I love when Vanagon owners figure out a way to customize their vans. This Vanagon owner took some scrap wood and material and created a very nice center console. The console holds his coffee and provides a step for his dog who wants to look out the front window. He says he still intends to add some usb charging ports. Nice job!

tricolor-t3

Check out this tricolor VW T3 pop-top. It has a black top with yellow and green below. I’m not in love with the painted bumpers, but it looks interesting. If you look closely, it appears this ride has leather seats in the front. The wheels round it out very well. Where can I get a set of those wheels?



This Vanagon owner decided not to take the easy way out by ordering a GoWesty bumper. Vanagon owner, Troy Smith, instead decided to make his own bumper. According to the description on Flickr, he plans to make a new swing away bike rack system. Click through for another pic.

south-african-steering-wheel-vanagon

All Vanagons in the US come with the same stock steering wheel. When my steering wheel was loose, I ordered a stock replacement on eBay and replaced it. Many Vanagon owners want something better than the stock wheel however. There aren’t many turnkey solutions out there except the South African wheel. When Volkswagen stopped manufacturing the Vanagon in Germany in 1992, production was moved to South Africa. The South African vana leather steering wheel pictured above. If you’ve got a spare $430 you can pick one up from Van Cafe. GoWesty used to sell them too, but they appear to be out of stock. If you’re game you can adapt a variety of steering wheels for use in your van. Click through to see a few examples.

After adding a sunroof modification to his Vanagon, Samba user narendra.vw could no longer use the A/C duct. He decided to modify the A/C vents to create some extra storage space.

vanagon glove box lights

GoWesty sells a glovebox LED light kit for about $38, but since I already had the LED lights we decided to make our own kit. The first purchase was this micro switch to tell when the glove box is open. It arrived from Amazon in two days and we were ready to roll. Click through to see how we did it.
