    Lookign good. Yeah I can make a spare tire mount…but it looks like you know what you are doing. I have one here to copy. The original has strengthening ribs that I can’t reproduce.

    Yeah I saw that. Yours will work. Thanks. More than anything I need yourย nut insert, I don’t have a lathe.

    thats one big messed up roof..

    Yeah, it is. Visions of those pallets of new roof pressings go through my head when I look at it. Someday maybe someone will put a new one on this bus, probably one with windows and a sunroof ๐Ÿ™„ย  But this is my roof, I own it. Anything is an improvement. It will work.

    Picking off little items on the shell, more patches on the driver’s seat pedestal, must have been a rats nest in there, fixed the cargo floor edges that I messed up ๐Ÿ˜ณย , lots of grinding. I finally made a rocker to cargo floor clamp, can’t remember how many times I could have used this before just didn’t take the time to weld some scrap on some old vice grips ๐Ÿ™„

    Had not 1 but 2 tenants flake out on me and drop out of their leases in December leaving me with dirty broken housesย ๐Ÿ˜ˆย Damn crazy women bustin up their families and cutting into my vw time!

    Kids, be careful with your prescription anti depressants!

    Doing some work on my roof ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Wood from Clara arrived this week ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    While you guys are in bus heaven can you get me a couple measurements, maybe a pic or two of a subhatch hole without the trim? I need the dimensions of the hole and how far it begins up from the rain gutter, how high the lip rises above the roof, the lip that westfalia made when they bent the roof hole. Is that lip just 1 thickness of metal – not folded over?

    This project is on semi-hold while I remodel a couple houses ๐Ÿ™„

    I do need the top hole dimensions if anyone has a fliphatch bus around.

    I took my lid to the local tin bender shop- the inner reinforcing ribs are rotted thru and I don’t have a bench break, figured they could bend up a whole new one without much trouble and the guy agreed, but his interpretation of a lid was not what I gave him or at all what westfalia was thinking ๐Ÿ˜ˆย Don’t take auto body parts to a hvac shop.

    You want something done right you gotta do it yourself… or hit up KCW
