Huh? That’s weird!
I had to replace the rear window in about 1976 when some asshole through a rock through it.
I know there were some chips in the paint around the latch button from keys, but I never noticed ANY dents in it!Pat KKeymasterOctober 29, 2019 at 6:15 pmPost count: 1068
Started the day out welding up pinholes and patching the bottom of the drivers door.
Rear apron is very bent. We will be sourcing a new one
Decklid and drivers door hung and adjusted.
Cut out the last remaining bits of the driver side battery tray. Made up a new “wall“ to install along with the new battery tray that has been ordered.
Patched up the small hole towards the rear of the long side rocker.
Found a few small pinholes that needed attention.
Picked up some sand, dropped off rear hatch for color match at the paint shop.
Down off of jackstands, on the jig ready to go in for touchup abrasive blasting tomorrow.
Also ordered a new lower inner section for the front cargo door.
Finish the day out welding up pin holes in the bottom of the passenger front door.
We will build it if it comes.YberParticipantOctober 29, 2019 at 8:11 pmPost count: 74
WOW – she’s going to be so PERFECT!!!!John JonesKeymasterOctober 30, 2019 at 8:25 amPost count: 5604
Oh yeah… Oh yeah…. She’s gonna be nice…. 😎 I won’t leave a spot untouched…. 😎
I don’t think you could get a beige grey and sealing wax red bus in 66 unless it came from westy????? The deluxe’s were titan red I think…. ???
Pats getting everything ready for the last abrasive cleaning session… 😎YberParticipantOctober 30, 2019 at 8:33 amPost count: 74
Yep – beige grey and sealing wax red was a 1964 color combo, not available in 1966 – except maybe on Westys. Maybe another piece of evidence for the 64 vs 66 sleight of hand by VW for this 66 bus – with OG safari windows…John JonesKeymasterOctober 30, 2019 at 9:31 amPost count: 5604
The Dr is in surgery… 😎 We decided to wait on the battery tray and B pilar repair before we dust off where we worked on it.. So Pat’s fixing the dash at the moment… Fits ate tit’s… 😎YberParticipantOctober 30, 2019 at 9:47 amPost count: 74
Yeah! Looks like getting down to the last of the metal work!Pat KKeymasterOctober 30, 2019 at 12:35 pmPost count: 1068
Welded and dressed holes in the fresh airbox cover and disassembled vent windows this morning. Rounding up anything that needs to be blasted.
Just finish up dash repairs around the radio opening.
We will build it if it comes.YberParticipantOctober 30, 2019 at 12:43 pmPost count: 74
WOW – REALLY, REALLY nice work, Pat!!!
Sorry – I forgot to mention – I think the height of the radio opening was also increased a bit back when I installed a stereo…John JonesKeymasterNovember 1, 2019 at 7:34 amPost count: 5604

I was thinking the block off plate would cover that up… It is only a cunt hair more than 1/16″ off each side…. 😎 well try one… 😎
I’m hoping for some WolfsBurgWest metal to show up today… Get that last of the metal work done and dust things off, and start body work!!!!YberParticipantNovember 1, 2019 at 8:35 amPost count: 74
Yeah – probably the factory cover plate will cover that. I KNOW for sure the stainless plate I machined (slightly larger) will cover it, so if it’s too big a pain – skip it!
BTW – do you happen to know what insulation was used on Willbur’s 65 SO42? It looks real nice and I’d like to find out.Pat KKeymasterNovember 1, 2019 at 1:40 pmPost count: 1068
JJ has me working on some shop cleanup/organization today. Came across a block plate. Looks like it will do.
We will build it if it comes.YberParticipantNovember 1, 2019 at 2:52 pmPost count: 74
Very cool, Pat! If that block-off plate works – I’m sure the trim piece with the stock Motorola radio will also fit.
Thanks for checking that out!!
REALLY nice job fixing up the bad thing I did to that dash, Pat!!YberParticipantNovember 3, 2019 at 3:04 pmPost count: 74
Today was a GORGEOUS day in the San Luis Valley – so we took Lori’s 69 Ghia out for a Sunday drive and a nice lunch. Big smiles!!!
