Thanks guys,
I'm hoping to get the shell painted within a couple of weeks. I have a little tweaking to do on my makeshift paint booth. I'll get the air right beforehand.
Pleated filters choke down the volume so much, I'll have to add a few more inlets.
I really like the direction Paul went with this build; he has preserved as much history as he possibly could.

I still can't talk him into 2-toning the bumpers. Wink

Thank you for all the positive comments, y'all are too kind.

I am so confused with the colour scheme! - Dove cab floor + engine bay, Westy cream white out side.

Obviously a resto interpretation of the Westy colour scheme?

I love it!

Yessir, you've hit the nail on the head.
Just doing the best we can to make it seem like it was delivered from Westfalia.

Thanks again for the comments.

Great project, just read the whole tread, love the paint scheme. But is there a reason why you set back the odometer just 5 miles? I agree that you shouldn't change it, and ofc you haven't really changed it, but why 5 miles? And again, beautiful bus Very Happy

I guess that happened when I had the gears off and was cleaning and greasing. I did not notice it until I had it put back together

Thank you for following along

That's right Eric.

Here is one example why I love Jerry's work,

Most people would just go ahead and take the easy way out and say. This is the metal that you supplied me, so I am putting it in. Not Jerry, look at what he did!

Jerry takes pride in everything he does, he is very meticulous, just the kind of guy I want working on my bus..

Check is in the mail... Laughing

I cant tell you how great of a job he is doing.
