The pics I stole off samba to show you the sliders.
Are you looking for a complete original set? That's like mission impossible. I got my set from the link below. The fabric seems to be a very good reproduction (I've only seen the original fabric in pics, not in person). And the price is right. There is a flaw in them though, where the tape should be removed and re-sewn upside up. Easy if you have or know someone with a sewing machine.

Thanks everyone.
Got it in the bus. I have to extend the seat belt receiver if I don't want the belt to choke me, otherwise it fits nice.

Took patterns and redid my door panels. They were falling apart from moisture (no plastic). The original vinyl is still alright, so I'm reusing it. Not sure what I was happier about, new panels or seeing the interior of my doors In such nice shape

I just scored this stool semi locally. Looks like it's barely ever been sat on. The only piece that was missing to the interior!

Bus is out. No clutch. Everything between the pedal and the bellhousing checks out. I'm guessing bearing or forks. Getting ready to pull the motor. Going to rebuild the tranny (and a bunch of other things) while I'm at it.


Chipping away at it.
Can someone tell what the hell is this white cable doing? Goes from coil bracket goes directly to the negative on battery.

Ground. Somebody wanted to make sure the engine was grounded. Take it off and discard. You should have a braided strap on the transaxle to torsion housing/irs pivot.
