    He is a clever bugger that Pat.

    And very fussy.

    20180707_152055_resized.jpg Pat was working on the cargo doors alignment today. One screw was snapped off which he got that out and rethread it with a tap die tool. Two of the inner striker plates fell down the back of the B an C pillars when Pat undid the the screws. He had to cut open the back an use a magnet an wire hook to get them back.
    Sux when you have to re weld back up a previous repair due to some like this
    20180707_152040_resized.jpg


    With lots of smacking the hinges an door with hammer an blocks of wood the doors shut nicely now. The rear cargo door had previous repairs to suit another car, so on the bottom the doors at maximum setup. Pat thinks that we can take the door off an bend the curve back into place

    Thats right scotto. Im really happy.
    Pats spent easily 6+ days working on that drivers door setup to get that to close smoothly. Still looking at cutting the top of the A pillar area to give a few more millimeters gap at the top front of the door. Pats learnt alot about body/panel work on this car for his future projects thats for sure.

    Well today Pats finished off the front door welding up. Bits of new metal pieces were formed and all welded in
    .
    20180705_104818_resized.jpg

    Cleaned up the welds an pulled the dent out of the swage line.

    20180705_105133_resized.jpg

    Sealed up the repairs with the oxide red paint.

    20180705_151313_resized.jpg with the new bigger spacer plates fitted its the best the door has fitted so far. Still needs a few mm tweaks on the A pillar thats a job for later on.

    [/ATTACH] 20180705_110233_resized.jpg Got the camper cupboards finished all the cut outs.
    Heres a trick my mate Kman showed me how to make doors fit an work well.
    20180705_110813_resized.jpg

    So you mark out the shape you want.
    Cut down the edge that is going to have the hinges on it.
    Screw on the hinges then finish cutting out the hole. The door will always fit .

    20180706_133643_resized.jpg 20180706_141145_resized.jpg The new 1776 engine had that crap chinese tinware on. Pat said it fits crap so got some better bits off another engine an got them sandblasted . i repainted it in heat proof flat black paint and we used some wider 6 gauge 15mm staino screws from bunnings to hold it down better.
    Pats is tidying up the wiring an has fitted a steel fuel line from the pump to out the back of the engine. Some sections had 6.5mm fueline put over the copper line to stop metal to metal wear an rattles.
    20180706_133653_resized.jpg

    Engines back in the car. Just got to look at hooking up the preheater pipes.

    You and Pat are too fussy.

    Those tinware to engine bay seals take up a lot of slack anyway.

    Im sure it will be loads better for all the love its getting.

    Pats welding skills are truly awesome.

    The other end i pushed the pipe inside the heater box an had slide on a rubber seal first which rolledcover the pipe. Not sure how this will go long term so ill see.

    20180707_134304_resized.jpg I tried to hook up the heater box infeed pipes with the originals ones. Kind of bulky an are getting in road of stuff do i decided to try some silver foil pipes instead.

    20180707_134214_resized.jpg

    I Slide the pipe over the original car body pipes an put on a 50mm staino clamp on.
    The cable connection on the heater boxes nèed some work to get them moving right due to wires an stuff in the road .
    ill look into later so just i hooked up the cables temperarly.

    Pat welded two big hole that were in the bumper. Not much you can do with panel beating it due to the brackets inside blocking access to the back. Good enough for now its nice an solid.

    Well the ply headlining is put in. Ended up using 2.8mm thick ply wood from Mr Ply suppliers.
    I made up numerous templates an wasted a few sheets till i got the right curves an finish. I put on 2 coats of maple stain an mat lacquer stainer an rubbed it back with ooo steel wool an bees wax to finish it off.
    Im just waiting on the white beading to turn up and the new ceiling lights with led bulbs so i can finish off .
    20180712_142353_resized.jpg

    Used a set of original westfalia metal trims on the roof curves . You can get repos ones from NLA vw U.K if your after some.

    [QUOTE="Wayne murray,

    pretty sure they used wood up to around 79ish.
    They used wood for the ceilings an door cards.
    Usually out of Birch ply but some rare models had pear wood .
    Cheers
