Re: Griffs 1965 long term (not supposed to be) resto

That's the boys! Ok, I'll fab something that will do the job, because I'd only need the rear half of one side ( hopefully!!)
Cheers again bud

Re: Griffs 1965 long term (not supposed to be) resto

Not the bulkhead piece. Sorry, my pic skills are rubbish. It's the piece that folds into the chassis leg and looks like it goes all the way up to seat base (inner wing). Where centre crossmember welds too

Griffs 1965 long term (not supposed to be) resto

Here goes, hi all, a few years ago I bought a '65 after not a lot of hunting. After selling my modified t4 and getting a t5, we went to a vw show to get parts to hop up the t5.

Re: My First VW !! Mid Life Crisis " Full index on page 1 "

Love reading your thread for tips on how to do things mate! Just getting back to doing mine :-/
I know it was a long time ago now, but did you build up cargo floor then slip in all new heater, handbrake etc tubes or did they have to go into beams before welding it in ( if that makes sense)
