VW Heritage Floorpan Gasket

Posted by volkszone



One of the key components for reassembling your body-off Beetle restoration is a top quality floor pan gasket because, let’s face it, once you’ve hoisted and restored once, you’ll (hopefully!) never need to do it again.

Of course installation is also key, but VW‘s decision to switch from a rubber seal to a foam gasket is considered to have taken place at the Mexican production facility in Puebla in the nineties. For easy, self-adhesive installation it saves time over waiting for a sealant to go off and is much easier to bend and meld to suit the contours of your floor pan.

Once installed, this exclusive to VW Heritage, UK made with brand new tooling alternative will prevent any annoying leaks while providing a wonderfully dense and cushioned seal for your beloved body to drop on.

Liberate the hole in the wall of £34.96 and set your web browser to: or dial 01273 444 000 if you have a query, and would like to talk with one of the VW Heritage technical peeps.

Volksfling – Biggar – 26th-28th August 2016

Posted by volkszone


Set in the beautiful South Lanarkshire countryside, just outside the picturesque town of Biggar, Volksfling is a friendly, fun VW show.

Show and Shine, Concours and a variety of trade stalls as well as live bands in the evenings, free children’s entertainment and technical workshops and demonstrations throughout the day provide ample amusement for weekend campers and day visitors.


Sunday 10.00am – 3.00pm Main arena
Basically two classes – water cooled and air cooled. The judges pick top 5 cars from both classes. From these 10 cars, one is picked as Volksfling’s Best of show. Prizes supplied from sponsors and traders at the event. Prizes awarded on Sunday at Prize giving. Entry to Concours is free but you still need entry to show. Forms can be collected from entrance tent.


Children’s Entertainment
As a family show we try and put on as much as possible for the younger VW fans. We have a children’s entertainer on site, free bouncy castle and free face painting. We also have Sandra who spends her weekend entertaining children in the marquee with painting and other craft skills. There is always a treasure hunt around the site with a money prize for the winner.


We hope that the different events and activities that we put on in the arena gives our visitors something a bit different to watch and are an additional attraction to the many other things we have on offer.  We try to have something a bit different each year although if we find something that we feel works well and which people enjoy, we will try and get it back to combine with some new stuff.  It gets harder each year getting things which we haven’t already had and which we think would appeal to our visitors.  We will continue to work hard to bring you some great stuff however if you have any ideas of things you would like to see, please let us know and we will look into it.

Bar and live entertainment
Each year on Friday and Saturday evenings the marquee changes to become the hive of activity, with a full bar and live bands. In May we have had  the Telltales on Friday and Scooby Snax on Saturday.

Volksworld Show, Sandown Park – 2nd – 3rd April

Posted by volkszone

2nd – 3rd April 2016
Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey, KT10 9AJ


A week later in 2016, The VolksWorld Show has been 25 years in the making and they plan to celebrate this milestone in style. If you have not been for a few years, make this the year you come back, you are bound to meet up with some old mates. Bring the family as we will have lots for them to do and see.


Show Vehicles

Show sponsors, VW Heritage have used their European connections to secure a replica of the 1937 Volkswagen prototype V30. This will join other cool cars in a unique VW Heritage display. Just Kampers have gone further afield shipping in cars from Brazil to debut at the show, some of which you will never have seen before. These vehicles will join other show cars from all over Europe in one of the best line-ups ever.

If you are thinking of coming to the show why not make a weekend of it and camp? Camping always sells out so make sure you book your camping pass today before they sell out. Camping allows you to extend your show enjoyment beyond the opening hours of the show and an evening knees-up at the golf course bar, where Vision Tech Beats will be hammering out some tunes. If staying on site isn’t for you, then take a five minute pootle and join thousands of other VW enthusiast at one of the many bars and restaurants Esher town has to offer. With the benefit of quick access to the show we’d say you should head over to The VolksWorld website and get your mitts on one of the last plots.


Although it is a classic air-cooled VW car show they pride themselves in stuffing the show full with other entertainment and activities to keep you informed and amused. On top of the entertainment areas, club areas, the hidden treasures Swampmeet, and Trader’s marketplace, the 2016 VolksWorld Show has increased the number of kids activities and offers everything from face painting, to colouring competitions, to their own Splitscreen bouncy castle to bounce the day away. Engine Build tech talk and a film show have been scheduled to help you, inspire you and guide you, and of course no weekend at the show is complete without a visit to live music entertainment arena that will be offering a selection of live bands and DJs all weekend. Fuze Townshend of Car SOS fame will be on hand all weekend hosting the take the lead competition on the Carle Nash stand. Finally don’t forget to pick up your free poster of the wheelie bus, come early as stocks are limited.

Not got your tickets yet?  Then be sure to save yourself some time on the day queuing and head to, and that’s without mentioning that you’ll save yourself some money with discounted prices for pre-orders. Advance ticket hotline closes on 28 March 2016.


And if this hasn’t sold it to you yet, head over to the website and watch the collection of past show DVD’s to really whet your appetite –
