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.volksaddictParticipantJanuary 3, 2018 at 8:20 amPost count: 573volksaddictParticipantJanuary 3, 2018 at 8:26 amPost count: 573
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 🙄 But this is my roof, I own it. Anything is an improvement. It will work.volksaddictParticipantJanuary 7, 2018 at 6:47 amPost count: 573
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 😳 , 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 🙄
Had not 1 but 2 tenants flake out on me and drop out of their leases in December leaving me with dirty broken houses 😈 Damn crazy women bustin up their families and cutting into my vw time!

These are the remains of the rubber brake lines, Stamped VW. Bet they are original! This thing didn’t travel too many miles.JbParticipantJanuary 7, 2018 at 9:27 amPost count: 588
Crazy old ladies whacked out on antidepressants…….yup??? fuck
bus is shaping up killer, ton of work!volksaddictParticipantJanuary 13, 2018 at 7:19 amPost count: 573
Doing some work on my roof 🙂 Wood from Clara arrived this week 😀 😀
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?mtnbusParticipantJanuary 16, 2018 at 10:34 pmPost count: 1033
my friend Chris Dollar in Pagosa has a 58 sub hatch. Can probably get info from himvolksaddictParticipantJanuary 19, 2018 at 6:40 amPost count: 573
This project is on semi-hold while I remodel a couple houses 🙄
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 😈 Don’t take auto body parts to a hvac shop.
You want something done right you gotta do it yourself… or hit up KCWJohn JonesKeymasterJanuary 19, 2018 at 9:38 amPost count: 6339
bummer… Look forward to the updates when you can…. 😀John JonesKeymasterJanuary 20, 2018 at 1:08 pmPost count: 6339
Jeff…. Looks like you are in luck…. I didn’t realize we had ANOTHER subhatch hanging out over here… It has the interior… but we could get a pretty good idea on measurements. well have to draw a picture so we can reference it later if need be.volksaddictParticipantJanuary 21, 2018 at 6:34 amPost count: 573
Upside down, well you get the idea. I need the size of the hole, how far the lip sticks up above the roof (about 1/2″ I think), and the distance from the rain gutter lip to the fliphatch hole lip. The hole is positioned front to back by the wood roof bow shoved up against the metal roof bow at the front so that one is a given. couple pics would help too, though I’ve mined several from samba. Thanks John!volksaddictParticipantJanuary 24, 2018 at 6:40 pmPost count: 573John JonesKeymasterJanuary 25, 2018 at 7:43 amPost count: 6339
