    The fuel tank cleaned out nicely. I installed it, polished the fuel cap, and attached the petcock. Ready to fuel-up tomorrow.

    Door panels installed with retromat sound and heat insulation behind.

    I’m not sure why the kicks and door panels are different colors. Maybe a different batch?? I have some matching paint to slather on today.

    The hubcaps should be chrome

    Whoops. I knew that. Barndoor commercial is chrome.

    Can we verify on some of the original VW canada pictures of this truck?

    Cab done! The repainted kick panels match better. I took some time and tried to put the screws in the original holes.

    Here are the nicest original hubcaps in our collection. I’ll pick the best 4, clean them up, and tap out dents. Hopefully they won’t need any chrome plating.
