  • T3 2 Wheel Drive Lift Kit - Final testing

    The first batch landed, and we've test fitted them.
    Shaking down for a week or 2 and then we'll set the wheel alignment and they'll be available to buy.

    Initial reaction when coupled with our own gas adjustable lengthened dampers is excellent.

    *** Update ***
    These are now in stock. Currently on our 3rd batch and we've had nothing but a positive response, especially from people swapping from other kits. Which is good to hear.

  • T3 Diesel Sumps... Imminent!

    Given the popularity of inline 4 cylinder conversions for the T3, both Petrol and Diesel, it was a worry when the Genuine VW ones went obsolete last year.

    Once they were confirmed as permanently obsolete by VW in Germany we spoke to JP Group in Denmark about the possibility of reproducing them, and they were happy to oblige.

    Its taken a while, as these things always do, but they will be available again in January 2016. Quality appears to be excellent and as always with JP Group, the price is very keen.

    As a company who specialises in older vehicles, its not just in our interests to stock and sell available parts, but also to try and make sure wherever possible that the important stuff is available for the future once its made obsolete.
    That way we can keep fixing them, and you can keep driving them.
    And it's great that companies like JP Group have the same interest in keeping them going as we do.

    The sumps wont be available to order yet, as we try not to take peoples money for things we don't have, but you can subscribe to the "back in stock notification" on the product link and we'll notify you when they land.

  • Dash (un) tidy! T3 Large and Small

    Another item we've had lying around for a while, just making it to the webshop now!

    Great for cluttering up your nice tidy dashboard with all the things that should be in the glove box :)
    Handy things though, and allow you to keep everything withing reach.
    Large version has the swing out table commonly seen on imported vehicles as they're designed for Left Hand Drives. They will work on RHD but the fold out table will be over the radio/gearlever.
    Small version just sticks onto the metal dashboard top so will work on LHD and RHD

  • One for the workshop customers

    A few weeks ago as we were returning from a wedding and taking the scenic way home we chanced across a new campsite quite local to the workshop.
    Now, regular visitors to Brickwerks HQ make use of the campsite a mile or so up the road from the workshop but it seems it's a little "Marmite", some love it, some don't, so we are now in the position where we can recommend a second reasonably local site for those that like things a little wilder!

    You know we like to try out the stuff we sell and I suppose this similar!

    Whitegate Leisure is a small family run campsite on the moors above Holmfirth and is run by husband and wife team Shaun and Sue who bought the farm a few years ago and are in the process of renovating the farmhouse and out buildings and is located approx 5 miles from our premises.

    We would say that this campsite is more suited to the outdoor-sy types as it's located "in the sticks". We'll warn you though, it's exposed location can give some great views over the valley but I can't say I'd want to be camping there in a storm!
    This campsite would be great for those that like walking, cylcling or ever a spot of green laning as there are plenty of walks, cycle routes and green lanes very close to the site.
    Just down the road is Coddy's Farm which sports a tea room [which does breakfasts] and a farm shop, another 10 minutes walk down the hill takes you to the Holmfirth Vinyard where you can go and sample wine made on the sunny slopes of the Holme Valley.

    The only thing missing is a pub but the centre of Holmfirth is only 2 miles away and this then opens up a whole realm of things to go of an evening from eating out to the excellent Picturedrome, voted the NME's 2nd best small music venue in the UK.

    All in all, for us a great little campsite and just up the road for us for those last minute "I want to go camping" moments.
    Please note it is seasonal and it shuts over the winter period, but, in fairness the lost village in the woods a mile or so away is called "Hades" ... if you're up there in the winter you'll find out why! (the neighbouring farm is called Elysium, it must have been named in summer as that means "A place or state of perfect happiness.")
