Re: Full pillar?

It's the offside front pillar. Looks like the bus has had a good shunt at some point and a very bad attempt at panel beating on the pillar all the way from top to bottom. Got the repair sections en route. Just thought I'd make life easier/quicker by just whacking a new one in. Thanks all, I'll look ...

Re: 65 13w deluxe 'Project Franklin'

I have a '65 lhd walk through which I'm going to be starting a resto on soon.
I had a look at my panel behind seat and it is bent like that too, only on the one side. They don't line up left to right either. Is yours like that too?
Nice job so far mate!!

Removing front indicators

I know your all going to hate this idea, buut.
Can I get headlamps which incorporate the indicators in them for my '65 bus? Just like the us spec ones for a beetle??
Any advice appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Re: '65 Westy Sub Hatch Project

Looking good mate!! I too have just got my first splitty project. Also a 1965 import ( alot rougher than yours :roll: ) I'm from down by Tenby and would seriously be interested in your views on the soda blasting. I've got my heart set on getting it dipped, but looking at you panels I might go soda??...
