    Did you guys find a source for the Limba veneer yet?

    Good question. KB, CB?

    Link below for Paul Zugg’s ’56 Westy resto.Β  Want me to message and ask if he can share his Limba source?

    We took the Goodrich bus to the paint store to have the weary interior tan paint matched. Trying to mask and paint the interior today.

    On my old 58 Westy, the interior paint was brushed on. I think most of the early ones were that way.

    I think spraying is a worthy variation from og!

    Yeah, I can’t image KCW replicating that sloppy brushwork from Westfalia.Β  Paint runs, painting over seals, etc. might be the “correct” way, but that’s probably only worthwhile when blending into Westy OG paint.

    Glad it was sprayed, looks nicer and if anybody wants to get all Bus nerd on it they can throw a few swipes of brush paint over the nice spray job and mess it up to make it more OG πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Spraying it was the best choice for an authentic finish… The paint Westfalia used was good at self leveling and not showing brush marks. It looks sprayed.

    The product we use (utec500 urethane) is an automotive paint and is thick. It would have showed brush marks badly.

    Started putting parts back on this on Friday. We had to order a few new window and door seals that we removed for the paint work, they will be here later this week.

    Also started back on the Retro Sound insulation install on Friday and finished that up yesterday.Β 0003309C-CD58-4E17-BCEC-B5F70EA8C29E37927E37-D2A6-42EB-91DE-FB87219AF4484490D6E8-30D5-49DA-B7CC-EEBC4E9AC24A

    We will build it if it comes.

    Any reason you guys are using the foil headliner/hood insulation instead of the heavy tar stuff?

    And less air leaks.

    And thermal protection too.

    Willy, the headliner type sound deadener is cheaper, and lighter than the tar backed stuff they sell. Retromat is easy to work with and its peel n’ stick…No glue overspray to clean up.

    New Limba interior panels arrived. Sanded a cleared test section on both new and old.Β EF2A1335-69B1-48EE-BB2F-32D3463D96B8

    Had a color matched stain mixed up so new and all the woodwork will blend together.2707F9DF-8DFC-4C3F-B287-699A9F116E3C

    Scraped old adhesive from a previous sticker veneer off the stove cabinet top. Should sand up nicely now.CF8C17F9-611F-4CC5-9802-6D0FCCF68E0BF958531E-2BEF-413A-AC3D-C63037C00AF75932C3ED-0F86-4823-BECB-63E4FA21CB5B

    Spent yesterday fixing pilling and missing sections of veneer on cabinets. More of the same planned for today.Β EEF4EDBD-B5D7-4F56-96A7-A380F85D197FF373016E-DCD7-4B6E-AA74-664CA75519FEBC6135BC-4B04-4F5A-8A6F-7FF1DC4D0961132BA114-3745-4433-8DAF-7E36716FC3A8

    The others are sanded with just a few repairs still drying. I’ll finish sand those spots in the morning.Β 1856DCBB-AA79-42D5-A950-C59137623B52

    I just realized why Westy painted them with a brush…no masking.

    I’d spray mine too.

    Popped the middle headliner panel in first thing today, markedΒ Β the opening for the sub-hatch and got it cut out.14F9EDCF-7578-4714-9B98-022A83991C0C15984289-1DE2-4A6C-94CE-A7B8159E8139

    Prepped the new panels with pre-stain.Β 1CEC60BE-4236-418A-B933-05F59AF7DC3E7FB96281-DE98-41C6-B830-7BE799887D6FB1A65702-5BAE-4F6C-9806-C0F0494704BA

    Laid down the first coat of stain. These need at least six hours of dry time before they will be ready for the second coat early in the morning.0FF0D07E-159A-45C4-B375-A6363984AD499829CB7B-7F8D-4906-8B3E-1B72B828E61ABA69314C-D335-4A04-AA97-8656EA8CB4517E241488-589C-41C1-9592-17FEEEE512C3
