If the steering was scary, then the brakes were terrifying. They would appear to be adequate, and then sink to the floor without much notice !! The fluid level appeared to be a little low so I topped it up and took the opportunity to bleed them while the wheels were off. Some air was definitely in the line at the passenger rear, furthest from the master cylinder (go figure!). IT will have to wait for a road test until the wheels and tires are re-installed.
The famous Westfalia top has obviously been very lightly used. The canvas is fairly new and is in very good shape, but the bedding and upholstery are in excellent condition which I believe to be original. It is not uncommon that the top bunk gets less use due to the gymnastics required to get up there. Either way, I am very pleased with this area of the bus.
