Yeah when I bought the bay there was no engine or tranny.
But it had that A/C unit inside...needless to say it will not be going back in.

Lookin good. Love the shit out of mine, "Geek" is now my backup. I want to see a picture of the rear slider camper windows! Is that VW or custom built? Maybe a window openning mod, if so you cheated but cool at any rate. LOL

Looking good, made all new panels for my bus but got rid of fresh air ducts in front. standard early bays did'nt have em and block of plates from factory capped the air ducts under the dash. Lovin the dual slider windows, never saw those on rear window before.

I'm unable to find the seal that goes around the top of the slider windows and was wondering if the seal that goes in the front door for that sliding window was long or big enough to fit......
Could someone get me a measurement on how long they are and perhaps a pic of what they look like.....I would greatly appreaciate it.

Yes it does and I still got to check out those rear camper windows. Looks like someone welded in a straight section to eliminate the curved part so those pups would work in the rear. Cool mod. Just think 4 sets of Jalousie windows!

Ok....the last pictures was showing all the woodwork.
It's all pretty much done except for a couple things.
So I figured that i would post a couple more pics of it.
Lets see what this looks like ......














Still have to get the flooring and put in...the strips to close up the gaps in the paneling on the ceiling and finish out the dash.
Slowly but surely...... Very Happy

Cool, I may have to look into one of those. I like the idea of the leg being hidden when the table is not in use.
