I know its a 356 forum, but, since their cousins, can somebody point me to where I can find some original sideview mirrors for a vw bus?
Tried ebay and the Samba. Both turned out to be a swing and a miss. Thanks!!

Wolfsburg West-high end VW parts, they have a ton of Bus restoration parts. Also, home of the Viton single lip 36 HP F/W seal @ $6.00- this fits every 356/912 Porsche made.

If you want really, really original as opposed to reproductions you can try the classifieds at TheSamba.com.
