This is the 1985 camper I have completed work on. Was for my daughter and her family, but they had another lovely child. Got them a tent trailer instead.
So the bus I have named 'Dirty Betty' is now being sold. Last year it was the 1983.5 VW Westfalia named 'Pokey'. Very confusing to family and friends as the two uses looked very similar at a quick glance. Seemed good to upload some pics of the finished camper.

GoWesty throttle body install on 1.9 Digijet. This image is to show the PRELIMINARY install, with the vacuum lines needing a bit of re-direction guidance. Once I get word from the good folks at GoWesty, the next photos will be posted as 'solutions'.
(the new GW switch bypasses some of the Digijet dual switch set up, also drawing vacuum from different ports)

Vanagon Modify 1.9 Plenum for 2.1 OR how I modified the mounting brackets to make a 1.9 plenum fit a 2.1 block. Yes I could search for a 2.1 plenum and do the work-arounds to adapt the 1.9 intake runners and vacuum/smog lines. But the project needed doing that weekend, so some 3/4 wide metal was shaped to do the trick. Took 2 hours start to finish. Done and looks OEM : )

Finished restoration 1983.5 Westfalia. Something I truly like is how well the new Fender Tolex 'wallpaper' turned out. It was a LOT of work but is a nice near-match to the original.

The swivels are restored, seats as-new now and that darned battery box is once more 'right'. Why someone decided to install the wrong sized battery is beyond me. It seems to be the case so often. The metal had been bent, reshaped and cut to hold the wrong battery. This also meant that with the lid in place, it shorted out the system. DUMB!

While the interior was out, the heater core, valve and lines were replaced. At some point in the bus's history someone had dealt with the leaky heater by placing a bolt in the valve and then plugging/bypassing the hose connection underneath. All DUMB solutions.

The engine is dialed. New heads, pump, rebuilt AFM, and so on. New clutch and plate, CV's and boots. Fuel lines, many hoses and the lot. Finishing touches were to replace all plastic water carrying parts including the H-pipe and Bleeder connection. The high tension wiring harness (Hall) was replaced with a new one from KYLE Automotive. This bus runs like a good friend, ready to play any day.
WORD...every Vanagon owner should replace the plastic water connections NOW. They are super brittle. When the fail (and they will), all water will come out and you will lose the ability to go places.

Yes indeed this is how the hob turned out. All brown metal was removed and powdercoated. The faucet had been bypassed (DUMB) and so a new one was installed. The stainless was polished back to shiny along with a new drain assembly and basket strainer. The burners cleaned of crud. The stay replaced with a strut (Thanks to the mod by Alistair) and all works perfect, as-new.

Yep. You are correct most 1983.5 Westfalia's did not have a skylight. That was one of the first things I did to this hot mess. Then the flocking, new tent, and powdercoated hardware. Even the DeltaSix plastic trim was restored and refinished. Looks and works as-new. Funny how many busses have tents that are full of holes and pop top flocking that is black with mold. This had that.
Yuk.

The dash... Restored all lamps, wiring and grounds; and relays, fuses and anything that needed to actually work. At some point a previous owner had simply snipped some wires. I guess if you snip it, you don't have to fix it. Oy!
Replaced the capacitor so the clock works. New speedo cable so it quit jumping.

This may not seem so important. However, this camper had no Westfalia fabric when I bought it. There was some denim and some cloth and none of it was right or even clean. The seat belts had been hacked! Some previous owner mounted aftermarket belts to allow more people to sit. Glad there were no accidents, as the little bolts were held in place with red silicone. Really? DUMB!
I installed the correct belts, and prepared the bus for shoulder belts by updating the set and adding a quick access plug to the retracting mount that goes on the sidewalls. Safety rules!

Here is the new Gowesty mirror. The brown one fell apart in my hands. The blond tolex headliner looks nice with all new stainless screws and hardware. Love that new windshield.

Another minor stealth mod, cabinet nets (Bus Depot) to keep things stowed away nice. No more keeping VW glovebox manuals in the glove box. The Gowesty hose quick coupling keeps here as well.

This shot shows a nice place to be...now.
When the bus was purchased, the seats were 70% duct tape.
The seat fabric was purchased from my friend Bob, who went full custom on his bus. Once in my hand, the fabric was cleaned and restitched to new foam by Mike at Bright Upholstery in Portland. The foot well is restored. It was in very poor shape from a neglected brake fluid leak (master), which had been allowed to eat all of the paint and sealer from the metal. I mean, like why fix it? ACK!!!

I chose to leave the OEM paint, that meant a full compounding of the surface and new paint blending where repairs (many) were completed. Ivory is actually very easy to blend. My bodywork does not show and that is a good outcome for sure. This shot shows the Gunzl sourced mud flap and restored/rebuilt propane tank.

Finished restoration 1983.5 Westfalia. This happy bus was completed and sold back to my friend Mark. It was once owned by Gaoying, who lives in Roseburg. Nice to see this bus back to 'as-new' and ready to travel!
Now I am doing a 1985 Westfalia named 'Dirty Betty'....Lord help me : )

Restored pop top surface, decals, seals and stainless tie downs. Heck, everything is new. The door window scrapers from Gunzl, side window seals from Van-Cafe all keep water outside now. The Gowesty hook ups are always a sweet mod. No more broken doors or leaky fittings. And yes, the door grips and all handles/locks were restored/re-keyed to 1 key. This is a one key bus now.

One of my favorite mods. Installed RV bay door stays to hold open the lids. They fold flat when not in use. Painted to match the rest of the trim. They look and work as if OEM. I like stealthy mods.

This bus has the most intense sun-damaged interior I had ever seen. So while the interior was out, I restored the cabinets and everything they embodied. The water tank had no plug, melted and cut/duct taped wiring and a dead pump.
It now works like it should. Tidy little cubby here.
