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: 159volksaddictParticipantJanuary 31, 2020 at 6:40 amPost count: 535
I think spraying is a worthy variation from og!PeteParticipantJanuary 31, 2020 at 7:04 amPost count: 813
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: 1776
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: 3119
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: 1175
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: 974
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: 183
That thing is going to be so quiet inside! Nice work.FranzKeymasterFebruary 5, 2020 at 12:44 pmPost count: 3119
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.
