Marty; I use Prestone's orange 5 year stuff. For heads and gaskets: busdepot, ken wilford, boston bob, AVP, or check archives.

I now have the money to fix the head gasket leak and dead battery. I've been doing lots of research on the net so what's the scoop on ordering anti-freeze and head gaskets from Germany? Is that the best way to get gaskets & anti-freeze? What about ordering/finding curtains for the side windows? anyone ever do that to their van? and finally how do I know what "model" my vanagon is? The site doesn't have the '85 listed in its info/years/ section! I hope I'm not asking to much at once here :) The battery is my first priority so any info regarding this would be appreciated. Then it's on to the head gaskets and tune-up and exhaust muffler and curtains and carpet and....

Thanks!! Marty '85 Vanagon (status: driveway decoration)
