SO42 - bits wanted

Post by Hinchy » Tue Dec 18, 2018 12:39 am

Og parts Wanted-
Walk through mat
Tailgate dead bolt
Curtain bungee P clip - got one, but need another
Trim for cargo door - the molding that goes on the edge around the lock mechanism. Apparently some were spot welded and others were screwed on - not sure if this was just a Westy part?

Cheers!

My vote is Westy part..

I believe this was due to a VW Variation. Kombis had no welded plate because VW did not fit interior panels BUT microbus did have the welded plate. I observed this when looking at the differences between a 64 and 62 microbus based Devon interiors with VW panels which had welded edges to cargo door around the lock mechanism and a 66 kombi based bus which had no welded closing plate..
This had Devon fitted interior panels and a simple hammered alloy plate formed and screwed across the gap.
So I believe that if Westfalia were based on kombi specification bodies for westfalia to fit their own interior panels .... they would have made and fitted their own closing plate. No idea what it looks like but westy made!

Well I have seen these plates, a van I restored years ago had one, I have seen them at shows in junk boxes but to the untrained eye you'd walk past it as it's a Michal Caine part.....................not a lot of people know that!

Mail me a pic of your bungee clip, I think I have one or two...
