    Talked to Chad, he says he repops those square pieces in a hard plastic material. you can get ahold of him through samba screen name ezcamper. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=1443863

    Thanks for the tip!  I’m going to see if I can get the OG VW part off, but now I have a plan B.  I may just order a pair so that I can replace them on the old gates, before selling them.

    515738D9-74AC-46AC-BB34-805BC06C95FDPat is always a good alarm clock when you’re visiting the compound. His grinding at 6am really gets you up in the morning haha!

    Cut and slice…. Pat was at it early…    Your truck is clean….   It’s never had a full on redo….  It’s kinda in between on the rust scale of things…   For instance…. the cargo floors look pretty good… pretty much patchable… but it’s a close one to call…  Cutting out cargo floors on  a DC sucks… especially if we leave the bed on…. 8-(  It looks thin thin thin under the gas tank area….    anyway… Pats gonna keep on cutting till we get to the good stuff…. 😎

    You guys are amazing!  Watching from afar on the old interwebs, I get updates 6-7 days a week, of serious work!  Great updates!

    When I got the DC a few years ago, I popped open the “smugglers compartment” because the cab reeked of gas after a fill-up.  Turns out the gas filler neck was leaking where it meets the tank.  When I opened up the compartment, it was stuffed with housing insulation and painted with tar.  I spent a couple weekends cleaning all that crap out.  Not fun!

    Here are the before pics:

    I cleaned it up and rattle canned it for a short-term fix.  Here is a cleaned up picture.  Can’t wait for the KCW long-term fix picture.

    Since this truck is a 1960, it doesn’t have the overflow tube coming off the filler catch, that drains below the floor.  Any spilled or sloshed gas ends up in the cab under the rear seat.  What do you think about installing one of those tubes.  I know it’s not stock, but it might be a good add for the future health of the vehicle and the occupants (reducing vapors).  Also, no one would see it, or know it’s there in that seal compartment.

     Cutting out cargo floors on  a DC sucks…

    Made some good progress today. Cutting out big sections. Will need to come back and disect the welded areas.

    Driver side lost the inner and outer rockers all the way to the rear fender well, some inner pillar sections, front out rigger and jack point. 322974E8-45B1-4B46-8E6B-F541B956A19F22EE42D4-9D65-4E14-ADB9-5F42A3F7ED2092E7A2A1-E2A2-4661-BDB6-0852712883919A703FBB-593B-437A-9F40-AF64C3C7FC47

    Pass side had some accident damage. Lower b-pillar and tear of dogleg. I give a little blood to each project.A14F89B1-E198-4D8C-B4A5-D2C9FE7A9ECCD2B690E1-0D69-4CA4-9B28-DA631C9BA1E5

    Pile of led melted from pass lower b-pillar/dogleg.7CC49B50-62DD-49F0-86B0-B451E2B2C208

    Pass side lost the dogleg, About 1/3 of the lower b-pillar inner and outer and the cargo door rocker. Bit more to come not quite back to solid metal everywhere. 7FFEF985-B6A1-4551-81D1-FEC1C8F8940ACC275559-5730-49BE-B459-369A7BAF3F7A

    We will build it if it comes.
