Australian Sun Visor - This is definitely not the first time we’ve seen a sun visor for the Vanagon, but I thought this van was interesting.

The South African grill is the obvious upgrade here, but the stock wheels make it feel original. This is an import that looks like it currently resides in Washington. I’d love to take this one out for a spin. Click through for another […] http://ow.ly/2X7u0N

Now you don’t have to choose between a high top, or a pop top. Just get both. Click through for […] http://ow.ly/2WKHCB

Carthago High Top - There are several manufacturers of high tops in Europe, and some people even custom make their own top. High tops look odd, but add so much room on the inside. With the additional room there is opportunity for more customization of the interior. Check out this Carthago high top interior with its additional rack and […] http://ow.ly/2WBOlE

South African T3 upgrades - South African VW Van fans are so lucky. VW kept making the Vanagon (aka T3) in South Africa long after the US production was halted. Check out some of the upgrades you get with this South Africa Caravelle Vanagon Kombi. For starters, it has larger side windows and an exterior air intake scoop. Click through […] http://ow.ly/2Wx17q

Custom Vanagon interior with a wine rack - This custom interior actually has a door to the “cockpit” like an airplane. The wood countertop with sink and drawers is gorgeous. My favorite part of this interior however, is the wine rack. Can you see it? Gorgeous! Source http://ow.ly/2WtXzO

Undermount PV Battery Tray mod - There is a lot of unused space under the Vanagon, and Peace Vans wants to make use of it. Peace Vans is a shop with some of their own nifty mods, and the undermount PV battery tray is a nice once. They craft a tray that holds a house battery and/or a starting battery.
