Couple more, colour is ever changing depending on the light
Normal for extreme colour cast off flouros etc.
Extremely smooth panels
Whats the truck cab in the background? Looks funky.
Thats Lucy, unsure of make etc, you'd need to ask Grego (vzr69) for that
Another couple, ready for buffing, bumpers look great, plus dormobile badge arrived from uk
Love the bumper stripe mr happy.
Hi mate that truck is a B model Mack, mid 60s I think
Looking sweet, buffing going well, extremely well by the look on this!
Haha, thats is like a sheet of glass.
WOW !!!!!!! ..... talk about a mirror finish
Ladies & Gents,
Alfie got glass today,
Wow, great work.
Looks good ,What you doing with headlining?
Dormobile only had front cab headlining anyhow, the rest was a veneered hardboard so gonna stick to a variation on this i reckon,
Any idea where someone might be able to pickup a pop top with glass roof
This roof is part of an original dormobile factory conversion, i wouldn't imagine they would come up for sale that often as there seem to be way less of them around compared to vertical pop tops. Keep browsing the forums, ebay, gumtree etc and you might be lucky but it could take time. Consider putting something in the wanted ads. Also be aware that this roof has hinges on one side and tilts rather than pops up vertically so there is a heap of underlying hardware that you would need also to make it work properly. Might be easier to adapt a standard pop top and fit some glass??
Grego / VZR69 doing some of the last finishing touches, a bit of rust proofing, squirt and spray everywhere you can,
How's the Sliding Door Hinge ..... if it hasn't had a full refurb then maybe an idea to look @ one of these https://forums.kombiclub.com/thread...r-hinge-unit-recondition-service.54126/page-2
Yep - you have gone this far
The hinge is in good shape, no major wear or slop, it just has a bit of surface corrosion which will be fixed up, have new teflon slider block being fitted also. Panels were hung on these photos for buffing and are still to be aligned etc. There will be no stone left unturned
