New Hoover bit drawing
Schmooey
Someone posted a complaint about the legibility of Dale Mueller's Hoover bit sketch. Dale was kind enough to approve my interpretation after checking it. Hope it helps.

Bay steering wheel puller

Bay steering wheel puller
Schmooey
The black C shaped plate is cut from 1/4 inch steel plate. It bears on the heads of the three screws that attach the turn signal canceling tab so it doesn't contact the delicate plastic shell of the wheel. A Harborfreight gear puller does the heavy lifting.

My old 67 bug
Schmooey
This is my first car, purchased for $700 with a burnt #3 exhaust valve. Otherwise it was 100% stock and rust free.
I owned it for about 12 trouble free years.

The bed in my 71 Westy
Schmooey
The cutdown cabinet on the left is level with the bed. The cushion by the spare fills the space when the spare is on the roof rack. Upholstery is tweed nylon from an upholstery fabric store.

Painted nose emblem
Schmooey
Kids were stealing emblems a while back. Sadly, they would damage the body in the process of this merry activity, so I painted mine on, using a sheet of art-supply frisket masking medium and a spray can, then a light drop shadow with a script brush. It makes washing the bugs off a breeze.

Wheel restored on the cheap---close-up
Schmooey
I restored this wheel with a dremel tool, JB Weld and Rustoleum Appliance enamel. It's held up well.
This shows the hub, which was pretty sad before JB Weld rescued it.

Thermostat bracket modification

Thermostat bracket modification
Schmooey
I drilled out the spotwelds and discarded the upper cage from the bracket that would restrict movement of the new tstat.
A riveted plate covers the large hole and is drilled for the new style Brazilian tstat. Weeks later, I relized the new tstat will close the flaps if it fails, so I welded the parts back together and ordered an old-style tstat. Oh, well!

The lid for the box
Schmooey
B is the bottom of the panel that forms the lid for the cabinet. It is covered with naugahyde over a layer of felt carpet padding. Wooden cleats position it in the cabinet opening.

Lower part of cabinet.
Schmooey
The plywood at along side A is a scrap of 1/2 inch fir plywood covered with a layer of 1/4 inch luan plywood and a coat of lacquer. It butts to the panel in the foreground that was also cut from the remainder of the original cabinet material. The opening was cut with a scroll saw, and the door was cut down to fit the smaller opening. To make the groove for the moulding around the upper door edge, I made a small cutter from a thick washer by filing teeth in the edge, then chucked it in my drill on a bolt. A hair drier softened the moulding to fit the curve.

Shortened side cabinet.
Schmooey
There was an existing vertical joint at A. I removed the cabinet panel forward of this joint and used it to fabricate the piece that goes from A to the side window. It's not set at a right angle, the outer edge is a bit more toward the front of the bus.

Modified hanging closet
Schmooey
The closet caused a blind spot and wasn't really used for Armani suits, so I cut it up. It leaves a bit more wiggle-room when the bed is open and is accessed by lifting the padded top.
Yeah, some future owner may hate it, but along with removing the funky icebox/sink and upper bunk makes the bus pretty roomy. This modification cost me about $15 for some L brackets and a piece of scrap plywood.

My bus after paint
Schmooey
The assembly line at the VW Factory. They built custom ACVWs. This place went out of business but I got my bus before they went down the tubes.
They had lists of colors and options for Ghias, bugs and buses, and would build you whatever you wanted. They gathered cars from desert areas which were delivered by car carriers on their return trips to the coast for cheap. The lot ouside was full of freshly built cars. Quite a sight.
