Fuse Box paper detail 50/51

Just for reference - Got one of the fuse boxes open on an early pod. Not sure if these are the same all years or not. Just for reference pod was stamped last 3 digits, early cloth wiring loom, Aluminium fuse box covers etc.

Rear Traction Tyres testing....
52panelvan
Put the newly shod Kempes rear wheels and tyres on my 52 to see how it drove with radials on the front and serious tread 16's crossply on the rear. Took it out in the mud and floods after - they work great but it definatly takes a bit more effort to keep it all in a straight line on the road. Still looking for the ones i want for the front (out of production)

For reference - Cargo Floor, rear coupler Cover differences
52panelvan
Almost certainly just changes when replacing worn out Die's over time rather than a design change.
On the lower left is a september 52 plate from my 52 and on the right the remains of my march 51 cover plate. Not huge differences, corners cuts and hole drillings being the main ones. The 52 one is a mm wider too.
The top 2 are just my sort of file copies, rough but i can make a copy from, its says +2mm scratched on the back of the 52 one:-)

The big round areas of rust on swedish forest vans/beetles are caused by big clumps of Moss sitting on the paint, makes me smile the moss that formed above the vw logo formed what looks like 58, yeh nice try Mr Moss but 6 years out.....:-)

I made this last year while practicing hand making outer panels. Seeing it was a random exercise it seemed fitting so i up scaled the grill dimensions and placing from photographs of one early 49 prototypes. A very rough modern take on an old design :-).......

Lower Cabstep on a March 1951, Buses were still using the short lower outer cabstep, you can see the original A post , the remains of the short outer seam finishes level with the inner box section lower tab. The first paint (non vw) colour has painted the lower seam and inner A post .

My very first attempt at an early badge. The plan is to make myself a front one but the flat rear style is easier to do while testing the process. 2nd one should be a bit more refined - hopefully :-)
