Is the Bug Spares scheme a viable place to get spares from? I ask this question because I sent of a cheque to join the scheme back in mid June, which was cashed in July. I have had NO response at all. I emailed to see if my application had been received but no reply. I have emailed asking for a price on a particular item but no reply. i am starting the rebuild of my old Bug and will require many parts. Help.
The Bug Spares scheme is about the only place you will find a wide range of parts for your Bond Bug,as Stiffy has said it will be something simple,as its not a full time job for dave he is not always there,but do's try to answer Emails and calls promptly.
Hi You could try calling Dave on the phone. I run a business, and find that when I send people an email, they often don't get it - their apam filter has treated it as spam or something like that. So it could be that your emails have not been received. Dave will probably also see this post, so if you disclose your full name he may be able to tell whether he has had your emails. Some people may send a cheque to join the scheme, and then take months before they ever try to order parts, so there is no particular reason why it should have rung alarm bells with Dave that he had received an application to join the scheme and then not heard anything from you.
Chris we are about and very busy, apologies if I've not replied to anyone's e mails yet, Azzy is now working shifts so that only leaves me to do the spares orders, source stock, and do our residents group work for the local council and there are just not enough hours to do it all. We don't usually reply to new scheme members until they start to order parts as some take several months to get to the rebuilding stage, I'm always ready to offer advice and quote parts prices to e mails sent, however if you sent one more than a couple of months ago please resend. Cheers Dave n Dawn Bond Bug Spares Scheme
Thanks everyone for your answers, especially Dave. Good to know that Bond Bug Spares is the place for bits, and I need many. Will be in touch shortly. I am new to this rebuild job so there will be lots of questions to come.

Little-John: I watched Mike and Eddd. restore a Bond Bug on "Wheeler Dealers." At the Woburn 40th birthday party there were two very professional looking 4 wheel Bond Bugs (one yellow, one green.) Were they factory versions? How were they done? By whom?

mybug: Anyone know the whereabouts of PTO 365M? It was mine back in the early 80s and some pix have surfaced here (apparently from ebay around 5 years ago) so is it still around?

karl: Andrea, just seen your post. if you're still looking try putting it in the for sale wants thread.

mybug: Searched and spooled through every image/video/old ad I can find on the internet, I'm thinking that PTO 365M is not around any more. May be resting in a shed, but given the small and tight-knit Bug community, I'd have thought that someone would know it.

jefferdp: All, does anyone know the size of the headlights on the bug, Some say there 7/6" but that seems a little large to me. Also where can you get replacments now?
