Hello! Is anybody OUT there? Haha, really, I would like to find a book that will give body and chassis measurements for cutting and rewelding a Bay window Bus. I've seen them for Bugs but not busses. Help! Lots of rust ! [email protected]

I can't say I've ever seen a book with bus measurements, if you can't find another bus to measure from the patch panels are a pretty good guide.

Thanks for the info. I just found a website that shows a lot of the rocker and sill repairs I need to do. If anyone out there is also looking to repair their bus, ,go to: type2.com, lots of good info about welding and how your bus is built!

Check the classifieds. I seem to remember seeing one for sale in the past. Person wanted $120 for it.
