    Thanks Its with a restorer now to get its upper body prepped and painted. Also soothing likely to piss off the purists but keeping that under my hat for now.

    Love the colour! If the windows look like they were always there then there shouldn't be any haters. Its your kombi, you do what you want with it and if putting in windows makes you happy and able to use it, then go for it! I don't like it when they looked hacked in - that does not look hacked :)

    Not usually a fan of fitting windows to an original panel........ but who the hell am I to comment? It’s not my Kombi.

    Looks really well done, and it’s your Kombi, and your choice...... make it what you want!

    And it does look great! :)
