    Curious – What does the M Code read?  Is this a “SK” paint code bus?

    Oh boy – everything looks FANTASTIC!  Can’t wait to see her in paint.

    Yeah – Lori and I decided we want to keep her the same way she left the factory – beige grey (L 472) over sealing wax red (L 53).  (Just my luck – red is an expensive color!  Sheesh!)

    I don’t know what’s on the VIN tag, but info I’ve found indicates that both 1959-1963 code SK654C and 1963-1967 code SK 308 (and SK 309) were beige grey over sealing wax red.

    John/Pat – does the VIN tag show either of these codes?  As you know, she’s never been repainted from factory colors…

    We thought about velvet green (gorgeous color).  Info I’ve found indicates that for chassis numbers 216 000 001 to 217 148 459 velvet green (L 512) was used on two-tone paint jobs with pearl white (L 87) – but not with beige grey.  We’ve already committed to beige grey above, because I’ve had custom powder produced for beige grey and powdercoated some parts in it (parcel tray, safari frames, and a few other small parts).

    We were thinking that this bus would have been painted at the Westfalia factory, so maybe SK corresponds to a Westfalia factory code?

    Two tone white and velvet green… pretty sure that’s JJs second favorite to dove blue

    Yeah – maybe she was painted at the Westy factory…  Any clue on the VIN tag?

    I totally agree – my favorite VW color of all time is Dove Blue!  And, if we were going to change color it would be to white over green – but, I don’t see anywhere that beige grey (sort of white) over green was ever used…

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, Russ.  This is a big decision, for sure…

    The m-code plate was not in the bus when you dropped it off just the vin tag on the fresh air box.

    Dash body worked and 2K primed. 486503BF-DFAB-4501-B60A-C207931F73FB1E4B95EF-DB76-452A-A10D-33C522D42432

    We will build it if it comes.

    WOW – the dash looks pristine!!

    The M code tag is the one on the bulkhead behind the passenger seat, right?  If so here are the only numbers on it:

    14   5

    425 025 177

    UF 2313 424280   1300688

    (1300688 is a good 1964 VIN – same as on the airbox tag)

    We would do the bottom side all sealing wax red usually.

    VW never fully painted the bottom sides. They were dipped in sealer then when painted only the visible areas, when on its wheels, of the underside we’re covered with lower body color paint.

    We have in the past done what we’ve dubbed as “factory crisp”. That’s lower body color in the wheel wells and up to the frame rails then leave it in sealer between the frame rails. Factory crisp requires a lot of masking and two paint sessions.

    We will build it if it comes.

    FIRST RATE, for sure!!!  So, just so I understand, between frame rails stays in primer?  Is it worth taping between the frame rails?  Or is the additional paint to paint it all not worth the expense?

    Yeah we can painting the entire bottom side body color. We’ve done a bunch like that. It’s actually easier.

    We’ve gotten in a groove of doing the bottom side in factory detail.
