I've just pulled the tape on my old 1980 Westy. It's probably my favorite van. It's got everything I'd ever need. I'd drive around the world in this simple old van today and not think twice about it.

It's got late bumpers, late square headlights, late seats with adjustable arm rests. iPod control stereo. Propex furnace with VIM kit. Fridge delete with Waeco 35l 12v fridge. New canvas is here, yet to be installed. 16" Audi wheel and tire combo, new exhaust, clutch, dual house batteries.
I'll post more after I reassemble it.
Jeff

VERY nice to look at...enjoy and put smiley-face sticker on the first paint ding. I dropped an awing bracket and chipped the B-pilar on my fresh paint...smiley-face sticker helped..
