- the plumbing of that fuel line looks a bit odd?

It feeds the burner on the heater up front.

If you ever get a chance could you post pics of how the pre-heat air tube is plumbed through the firewall, what the coupler is for, and if the right heaterbox pre-heat outlet is smaller than the paper tube?

That is if you ever get done slobbering over everything else. That rivals, who was it...Mark Merrill's, two velvet Westys.



Hi BarryL,

I don't think it was Mark Merrill. I believe you are thinking of Ross Harmon down in SoCal with the two matching VG SO-42's. Mark M. does have an awesome Pearl White SO-42 which in fact I just borrowed for the Solvang weekend less than two weekends ago. Haven't seen Ross in quite a while, hope he's doing fine! Nice guy!

Beautiful, love the logos!!! Are those the original painted logos, or repainted and distressed? Very nice!

them be original logos- no faking the funk for me

the logo's were painted over many moons ago (presumably once it was no longer a laundry truck) - so i had to *carefully* remove that paint without damaging the original logo's underneath. I am happy with the results

Thanks Paul- the hanging laundry was a deal clincher for me and being a canadian bus (and kombi to boot) made it a no brainer for me

Michael, are you running out of storage space yet? What a classic. How did you find that one?

Great looking bus...nice save on those awesome logos! They reminded me of the laundry on the line at my grandma's house as kid.

Thanks for the likes. The laundry line was the clincher for me. The velvet green kombi was just an added bonus. Smile Storage is always a challenge just have to be very resourceful and have friends with parking lots/garages that don't drive.

got my so33 camper kit installed. did a cheap floating floor to add some contrast to the birch. i dont think red/black plaid is right for a 64 so33 but it looks good with velvet green.

Thanks, your new interior looks great! I figured I had to post mine so that the "Velvet Green Subhatch Westfalia Mafia" could represent. Very Happy
