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

Back on it after a very long time doing nothing! Bought nearly all the panels I need, cleaned up chassis legs, welded in some of the floor braces, cut off front and wheel tub. Even moved the old girl into a garage I can crack on in!!
More pics tomoz hopefully 👍🏼🍻

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. Not having much luck in finding what I liked, the boss (wife) said she fancied a splitty! Not a chance was the reply she go...

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 :-/
