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

    Good question. KB, CB?

     

    Pat, you build some damn nice camper interiors

    Ahhhh…😘… Thanks Willy.

     

    Made a template for corners yesterday, cut panels, and test fit. These were the last two panels we had to make. All panels ready for veneer. 2CCBBB09-F2EC-4518-9F43-39DADA24584290E05FD4-9A1A-4716-BAE9-ABC4BE1B675B953B6D42-D561-477A-9F20-A39510715640

    Started sanding on one end of a cabinet this morning. They will clean up nicely. Going to hit the HD today to search out a clear or tinted Polyurethane that will match original finish.07F2B249-C5B6-4F0B-AECF-BFB259122C86

     

    Pulled windows and prepping for paint now. Colour match looks great.C6C97079-AF0E-4996-85D7-B1BE77831CED074785DB-4AF4-4124-B74A-53644F14262F

     

    We will build it if it comes.

    Link below for Paul Zugg’s ’56 Westy resto.  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.  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 😉 🙂 🙂

    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. 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?
