Things are getting better and better…. I beat the doors till they fit the hole… I marked all the last spots that need something… I’m working on the list now! 😎WillyModeratorFebruary 25, 2019 at 2:12 pmPost count: 705

Hey Pat, I never checked back in on whether you filled the hole that was drilled in the fresh air vent to hang a non-VW rear mirror? Apparently earlier commercial trucks didn’t come with a rear view, so most people added a mirror similar to the other buses. Mine had a mirror off something else, that I removed. I have a VW repo that screws to the standard location, not the bottom of the vent. One less place to collect water and leak on the dash (I know the safaris will be the biggest source of leakage).Pat KKeymasterFebruary 27, 2019 at 8:22 amPost count: 857
Yes Sr. that hole has been taken care of.
Cut open the backside of the engine lid mount yesterday. Broken nut cage and no nut plate that I could find or fish out with the magnet.
Made a new nut plate and cage.
All back together!
We will build it if it comes.mdubgParticipantFebruary 27, 2019 at 9:27 amPost count: 251
Looks great! Is there a place where the old nut plate could escape during rollovers? I ask because I know one existed, as I had a bolt in it previously. Probably doesn’t matter now, but wondering if it’s still in there.John JonesKeymasterFebruary 27, 2019 at 10:04 amPost count: 4786
I am hoping it fell out. 😎 Pats widdling away at the list of things to do before we start body work… I had to dig out the rain gutter the other day…. It had some serious hard seam sealer.. might have been mud.. hard to tell… but coated in there and hiding more surface rust,,, So I am gonna have Chris touch that up before I do any body work….. Although.. I am going to do some pin work on the nose this morning.. 😎John JonesKeymasterFebruary 28, 2019 at 10:46 amPost count: 4786
Chris is prepping to dust off that rain gutter for me.. Pat has the DC all torn apart again.. welding done, dust it off, start body work tomorrow… 😎John JonesKeymasterFebruary 28, 2019 at 11:09 amPost count: 4786
It’s pretty handy to have a blast booth…. and a guy to do the work too… 😎mdubgParticipantFebruary 28, 2019 at 12:16 pmPost count: 251
Great updates! Can’t wait to see the body work progress.FranzKeymasterMarch 1, 2019 at 9:36 amPost count: 2400
Bo hooked us up with a steering box. I packaged and sent it to wolfgang for rebuild.
