I've got 3 extra. They have some over spray on them and the frames are shot. You can have them, PM me your address if you want them.

Thanks Jon, I ended up using the bottom parts of the winder frames you sent, they were better than mine. Yup that is my high dollar paint rack for my removeables. I need to build a garage ](*,) . My neighbor asked me if I was wahat they call a shade tree mechanic. I didn't know if I should have been offended or not, so I said I guess I am and went on with my business. :-s

A little more progress, getting closer \:D/ Windows in except for the popout on the driver's side. I've had an itch to drive this thing, so after I got the camper windows in I decided to drive it down the street and back. I found out something about these old aircooled VWs... they run out of gas if you don't put any in Smile Luckily I turned it around and was able to coast it in the driveway, and if you just have a popout laying in there to keep the rain out.. they fall out when you turn around #-o I didn't know if I was going to like the camper windows, but there in, what do you think?

Little progress, and juuust about ready to start on the camper interior, hopefully we will be camping in it soon. I really like JJ's camper interior, but we will see. Sorry for the crappy pics, it's raining outside and generally shitty.
