Is there a manual or site available that has body repair specifications, measurements, chassis, shapes, thicknesses, assembly diagrams, etc, to do the serious body work many of us need to do for the t2?

This is the only one I have seen. Would help on assembly, no specs.

This came out after the type 4 engine upgrade in 1972 and before the big green Bentley did in 1974.

I'm not sure if there is such a thing as a "complete set" because it varies by market and by what is considered part of that set. I've got 18 plus a few add-ons.

Looks like it has the flat rate spec. That in turn determines the cost for a shop to do the work.

Just got these in the mail today off of ePay. Nice early 70's set of info. Particularly the troubleshoot for carbs dated 1974 - perfect for the 74 camper. Cool

A useful add-on is a sheet-style magnifier for reading wiring diagrams. Helps a lot as your eyes get older! Make a pocket for it in the inside front cover of your Bentley.

Something like this - I'm sure there are plenty of other places to get one. Google 'fresnel magnifier'.
