I think the tree is a great idea. I'm going to try and be there this year. Missed last year which I wasn't happy about. It even looks like Riches doka might be ready.

Thoroughly enjoyed again. Big thanks to everyone who put the effort in to make it happen. It seems like the last time I could get to an event was far too long ago. Looking forward to syncropendance and meeting up again. Lee
Hi guys and girls. It's been a while. I need to find out about the std body colours and the colour stickers that were fitted to the syncro. Did the blue vans only come with the silver stickers or did they come with black also. Thanks Lee.
That doka has had doors shrunk and arches stretched. Mark gave Dave the pics I posted of my doka and did similar. He built it that way as a result of driving one in the states that was running that size tyres. Not sure why he didn't go bigger as Alan runs that side without the door shrink.
Found a set up that works on the 16" hubs only to find the carriers are vw only and £120 each. I can get carriers for around £40 each for most of the others so refurb the originals for now. This is holding it up too much.
It's all down to the tyre / wheel size and specificly offset on the front and how much lift the van has. You need clearance to avoid wheel rub if you go out side the parameters that the std body will allow. At that point you fire up the grinder and air saw.
Ok. I've got the discs and calipers in place and they look good. Struggling to get sense out of vw for the carriers. Anyone got a part number. Also mines a 16" so I'm hoping it's going to work for the 16" hubs.
@DSM. I'm a bit dubious of epytec stuff. Do the pads in your set up swipe all of the disc face. I've jigged up 300mm discs with audi a4 calipers and pads but the pad only sweeps part of the disc face. I'll check out Simons thread now cheers.
