Howdy Dave and welcome to the forum and thank for posted pics! Sweet bus you have there, you gotta love those low mileages eh? It looks like new. /\:)
If you are looking for original accessories, try using ebay.de with google translate. Or if you get stuck, ask for a german translation for your search item and one of our native German speakers will help you out.
Also post a Wanted ad on the forum and see the For Sale items. You'll need a pair of two tone horns and correct light, the control relay, switch for dash labelled "Alarm", made by Hella generally and wiring.
You'll have to come and say hello at one of the shows if we have a display or gathering. Did you pop in at Vanfest?

Yes indeed, the pick-up is mine, you really shouldn't sell yours, you will never come across another v.low milage bay plus yours is unique and that counts for a lot!!!
