Yep, pretty simple technique known to motorcycle builders as the "Yoshimura" technique (named after one of the famous exhaust builders).

I was thinking the same thing.

I know about conduit bending. A Master Electrician going on 40 years! we need way sharper tighter radius bends than 1/2 EMT conduit benders. I think they are 6". Need more like 3" I'd be willing to fabricate something.

That would be dirt cheap if it was a real VW Bus seat from pretty much any year

But It's not VW.


Aah--my suspicions are confirmed then.

That's why I ask the all-important questions here Very Happy

Yes, the whine threads are good for questions too.

I do wonder if the tubing is the same size so it could be cut up to fix a rusty Bus seat base. Very Happy

Probably not though, it's probably not metric-size tubing

Seems like early seats are 20mm tubing. Looks too thick. One can buy real metric sized tubing from McMaster. I'm trying to figure out how to bend it without collapsing!

They are made in Germany and fit perfectly. They feel quality too and the rubber boots on the back of the bulbs to keep water out were an unexpected bonus. Item can be found here:

I wouldn't assume that all of the Autopal branded lights you find will be like that. Most of their lights ive seen are manufactured in India.

Congrats on the new bus! Luckily the seller didn't put the rear wheels on or wash it otherwise the asking price might have been 20k Laughing It's nice to see that there are still some reasonably priced buses out there.

Yes it was a good deal very nice Rivera very low mileage and looks like it was never washed or waxed since 1990, sitting in my driveway next on the list.

This looks pretty solid for 2500 bucks https://roseburg.craigslist.org/cto/d/1972-vw-bus-camper-van-kombi/6673435848.html Looks more like a 73 than a 72 though Very Happy . edit: Maybe something a little funky in the rear corners, especially the driver's side. Might be dented. Pass side bottom of corner looks rusty but might just be surface rust. Hard to tell from the camera angle and the dirt. Still a lot more bus than I usually see for this price.

Looks like early 70's camper interior South of Wilmington NC. "Best offer."

Driven by that bus for many years. It's been sitting at that gas station, moves spots every once in a great while. Never stopped to really look it over, but seemed like it was in pretty decent shape.
