Hi there. I am currently in Wickham which is a short drive from Karratha... does anyone know anyone up here that works with Dubs? I have a '73 L-Bug

What a top spot. I went through Karratha 9 years ago on my way around Oz. I remember the way those iron ore hillsides just stood out up there. Top spot. We stayed a few days - got very drunk with a couple of girls who were cycling around Australia.

No idea about your other question though mate. Happy searching for someone who can help out up there.

What the problem anyway?

It is a nice spot, i lived in Dampier a while back when my Dad was the Fire Chief of the local station.

I'm not aware of any specialising mechanics that way. Hopefully there may be someone on here up that way who either can service yours or recommend someone they take theirs to?

My Sister and brother in Law live in Karratha. I'll ask them and get back to you on that one.

Iruk... whatever his name is hasn't been on here since October last year so maybe he did find a VW mechanic!
