Bay Westfalia Bent Wood Hinge Cover   Price: $250
Bent Wood Hinge Cover for Early Bay Westy
These were used on 68-69 Westies, and some versions of later campers. It was used on campers that did not have the headbanger cabinet.
This is patterned off an original from a 69ish Westfalia.
It is pictured with an original for comparison.

The Hinge Cover is made of Baltic Birch. It comes pre-bent!
This price is for bare wood, not varnished. Apply your choice of finish to it. I recommend clear satin.
It is not pre-drilled for screws, as I am unsure if the screw locations were exactly the same from bus to bus.
It does not includes hardware or brackets. Just this awesome piece of bent wood.

I can ship this to you no problem. Let me know your zip code.
I can ship internationally. It is about $75 to ship this to Europe.
These are made to order so please allow some time. The one you buy will not be the exact one pictured, but will look very much like it.

The notches clear reinforcements in the 'sunroof' model that the pop-top Westys were made on. If you are putting this in a tin top bus, you don't need the notches. But... it really doesn't matter if it has the notches or not though, as you don't see them when the large roof panel is installed.

This hinge cover is installed BEFORE the large roof panel in front of it. The notches are not visible once the large roof panels are installed.
The hinge cover basically goes into a 90* shape, with a curved corner. The large roof panel helps keep the bent wood hinge cover from relaxing out of the bend.


*UPDATE* August 2016
I am now as of offering 68-69 pop top westy roof panels.
They are $300 for
- large front piece over driver
- small piece each side of pop top hole
- large piece behind pop top.
The front piece is drilled for a dome light, but does not include the metal bracket around dome light that Westfalia attached. I can attach your metal bracket if you send it to me.
It is not drilled for a hole for the vent pipe for the water tank that the later early bay westys had.
The side piece above the folding table is drilled for the light, and reinforced where the light screws to it. Sorry, no pictures right now.

Sorry I am not offering full westy wood interiors at this time, just what I have ads up for. I intend to offer a full range of bay westy wood headliners pop-top and tin top at some point...
I will place ads when they are available.
