What a challenge!!!

Good work! I'm glad I didn't bet.

With your skills I still think you will finish your van first. :)

if you ever want to put safari windows in that panel i make a really cool kit that looks and works just like the o.e. safaris from the factory.
they are in the parts section of the forum and on the samba and bugbus.net under parts 49-67 check it out if you want.
