Re: 1959 Canadian Mango Microbus project

I was trying to not cut the front main panel. Only replacing the front lower sill outer ie under the lip on the front panel. Then also replace the two lower A posts and full inner lower sill. If that makes sense? I've only seen thread where people have cut a few inches above the front lip to expose ...

Re: 1959 Canadian Mango Microbus project

Thanks Ben. I've started removing it up to the inner lip of the section including the headlight bowls. I think that's what your saying? It's solid from there upwards. It's not the easiest removal and I'll need some new air tools to help but will try that first to keep as much old metal as possible.

Re: Vw museum certificate delays!

Not the case Jim. I got one last year in 2 months. And a few other SSVC members I know got theirs in 2-6 months in the last 2 years. It seems you need to keep on their case.

Re: Vw museum certificate delays!

Nik. Yes your right if that is what people are after but I was after a bit more detail on the bus being an early 1955 bus with no history at present. The SSVC register has already kindly helped with some detail. It's a shame not enough resource is being put into it by the sounds.

Vw museum certificate delays!

Just to let those that don't know - I rang vw museum today to chase a history certificate for my bus. They are currently quoting a waiting time of 8 months to issue a simple certificate without the full history file!! So if you in a rush ...... :(
