Did you guys find a source for the Limba veneer yet?
Good question. KB, CB?
Link below for Paul Zugg’s ’56 Westy resto. Want me to message and ask if he can share his Limba source?MikeKParticipantJanuary 31, 2020 at 4:03 amPost count: 238volksaddictParticipantJanuary 31, 2020 at 6:40 amPost count: 639
I think spraying is a worthy variation from og!PeteParticipantJanuary 31, 2020 at 7:04 amPost count: 913
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.RustabusParticipantJanuary 31, 2020 at 8:12 amPost count: 1977
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 😉 🙂 🙂FranzKeymasterJanuary 31, 2020 at 9:08 amPost count: 3701
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.Pat KKeymasterFebruary 4, 2020 at 10:17 amPost count: 1470
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.
We will build it if it comes.WillyModeratorFebruary 4, 2020 at 10:21 amPost count: 1178
Any reason you guys are using the foil headliner/hood insulation instead of the heavy tar stuff?Scott SainParticipantFebruary 5, 2020 at 12:13 pmPost count: 285
That thing is going to be so quiet inside! Nice work.FranzKeymasterFebruary 5, 2020 at 12:44 pmPost count: 3701
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.ColeBModeratorFebruary 6, 2020 at 8:49 pmPost count: 1750
Looking good! Love the small westy touches. Always makes things more interestingPat KKeymasterMarch 19, 2020 at 10:11 amPost count: 1470
New Limba interior panels arrived. Sanded a cleared test section on both new and old.
Had a color matched stain mixed up so new and all the woodwork will blend together.
Scraped old adhesive from a previous sticker veneer off the stove cabinet top. Should sand up nicely now.
Spent yesterday fixing pilling and missing sections of veneer on cabinets. More of the same planned for today.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KKeymasterMarch 20, 2020 at 7:06 pmPost count: 1470
Finished repairs and sanding on better then half of the cabinets between yesterday and today.
The others are sanded with just a few repairs still drying. I’ll finish sand those spots in the morning.
We will build it if it comes.MikeKParticipantMarch 21, 2020 at 9:46 amPost count: 238
I just realized why Westy painted them with a brush…no masking.
I’d spray mine too.ColeBModeratorMarch 23, 2020 at 9:32 amPost count: 1750
Thank you Pat for all the attention to detail. This interior will POP! Cant wait to see the finished product. Getting it DONE as alwaysPat KKeymasterMarch 24, 2020 at 6:38 pmPost count: 1470
Popped the middle headliner panel in first thing today, marked the opening for the sub-hatch and got it cut out.
Prepped the new panels with pre-stain.
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.
We will build it if it comes.
