As far as I know Lind popularized the term springframe. I believe the official westfalia description is “deluxe export”. The bus does have large metal spring bed frames which make up the entire bed.

Great work as always, Greg.


Is anyone doing the short (Rear) slope rack bows?

I haven’t seen one yet.

Greg's attention to detail is the best in the business!

By the way, my Westy is not going to change hands.

Good to hear. Thanks!

Hell yeah, you put one of those racks on and then the bus is w ...

Awesome work Greg. These owners must be stoked to get that missing piece on their Westy.

Interesting enough two of the above buses have changed hands since completing them so the stoke was very sh ...

Here are three more ‘58 westfalia racks assembled and on their permanent homes. All three buses are the same color (PG/SG)

I’ve encountered repro frames with screw on tabs. I can’t recall the source unfortunately.

It’s time for that engine to be rebuilt. If you choose to keep running without doing a rebuild I would encourage you to reset the end play back to where it was before.

Definitely a few 58 Westy's out there but how many with the fridge? 3 maybe.

I would think it’s more than that. I think there may be 30-50 or so known ‘58’s and maybe 1/3 of them had the fri ...

Greg- your racks are dazzling. I was checking the front rack out at OCTO in June.

Most dropped spindles dont use the shorter bushings. I think the intention ...

Sorry to hijack Jaceks thread. It made more sense to me than starting a new one. I started this '57-'58 roof rack project in private in 2016. Part of it was outlined on the KCW website in 2017 but the ...

You can make one of those knocker tools by welding a piece of 1/2” plate steel to the side of your socket. I did it once when I was in a pinch and cut it off later when the knocker was found.

Are you moving the boxes to the new transmission? If so, remove the drums and disconnect the cables from inside there.

If you’re not moving the boxes over, and planning to throw away the cables, th ...
