The blue pumps are hard to find and most times missing from the 74-75 Westfalia campers. Im sure someone with one will want and need it.

Did you see this? Look further down the page for even more info.

Any interest in the Coleman air compressor from my '74 Westy? Is it pretty rare? I found a post on here from 7 years ago but nothing recent. Looks like the wiring has been hacked by PO but it has the original silver socket connector. End panels are both broken off but still have them.

he made scans, and the first one is sitting on his ping pong table or pool table gathering dust. He wants to make one first, and bask in the samba glow.

Notchboy, did you ever make the scans of this thing? It would be awesome to have on like a coffee table or something.

Hereís the map light . Just black with a flexible end . I have not taken it off so no idea on the make . For a UK bus itís not too bad . It came with all the panels including some NOS ones .

congratulations - but also looks like a lot of work...

What kind of map light was installed? HELLA? In black (like in Police an ambulance bay windows) - or chrome?

The Model is in VW Yosemite Yellow - as seen in the pic. Yes there are perforations in the original model. I have to glue this poster paper to a sheet of board, cut it out, anneal the folds and cut the slots for the tabs. It will all be final glued to stay together.

A true project Cool

How would he be able to make them fold into a bus. It appears to have perforations or something...

Have you photoshopped the colour according to your bus?

I really look forward to a forthcoming release!

Thanks and bye,
Michael

Yeah, yeah. I haven't let go for two reasons. Well maybe 3.

I want to make it first. I have made a bigger scan for myself, printed ready to make. Just haven't done it yet. Because when I do, you know me Ill plaster the shit out of it all over social media and here. Wink Laughing

This falls into reason 2 - once its out, its out. This is an unobtainable item and Im not one to withhold this cool shit from anyone. You all and anyone else will have access to get a proper scan for free after I make my initial one. I would expect all that get it to make it and share on social media. This will prevent what Im protecting against at the moment - that asshole that wants to make a profit out of it. Free is the key Wink

And finally. Piss off Im busy Rolling Eyes Laughing Cool
