Errrm - am I missing something here? It's an SO42 so all cabinets are made from Getalit faced ply. Not a limba in sight ;)

Buy Getalit repro from Adam at NLAVW
1966 SO42 Westy in Velvet Green - on the road at last!
1967 Devon from Devon still in Devon
1967 Sundial from Idaho
1971 Westfalia from LA
1971 patina Delux from Montana now living in Germany
1972 Devon now owned by No 1 son!

It's very simple - the 'wood' is all Getalit-faced ply. No limba. None. How do I know? I have a 66 SO42. Don't listen to the Samba readers - they are all mad as a box of frogs!
