Hey everyone,

There was a person on here a while ago that sold the front kick panels made from ABS plastic. I was wondering if anyone knows where to get them? There are none for sale in the classifieds. Hopefully you can help.

Thanks,

Steve

Bus Depot sells them. I got them for my bus and i love them. But then again my originals were falling apart...

http://www.busdepot.com/details.jsp?partnumber=102120

Maybe not worth $50 but not many other options

Hiya Pas,

Fer Gawd's sake don't mess with questionable junk. Buy Werksberg's kick panels.........they are the absolute best. I have them in my Bus right now and I would have been one sorry sack had I not bought them. Excellent material, excellent fit, and excellent finish.

Take a look........

Thank guys!

On Bookwus, he added the repop stickers from somewhere....I forget where he stated he got them from. Sucks getting older! LOL.

Just use plastic wax to clean and protect them (every order gets a scrap piece to testing painting and protection cleaners plus black oxide screws too) like from a Motorcycle shop face shield cleaners / wax.

Can be painted but wash with like rubbing alcohol and use Krylon Fusion plastic spray paint in a can. Or if you want the best, have a body shop spray "Bull dog" on them before painting them with rubber bumper type paint.

The Werksberg kick panels look great. I just ordered a pair. Looking forward to it!

P.S. Where can you get the sticker for above the windshield washer reservoir?

Wow, those look pretty sweet. Unfortunately (fortunately, really) my OG panels are in good shape still.

Well thanks everyone I appreciate your help. Werksburg I will be placing an order for a set of those once I get paid from a deal I have going right now. I placed your panels on my watch list. Again thanks everyone

Thanks again on the kind words.

If anyone wants to save an added $3.50 (I would rather save the samba members $'s instead of paying Greedbay...) on the shipping just IM me and buy them here.....

Every shipping order goes out with added bonus item thrown in for free too!

Another tip: Add some sound deaden behind the panels that will not absorb and hold water like Home Depot Alum. bubble wrap for insulation.

I have many more ABS Bus (and Bug) panels in the works (after 14 years of teaching a Ca. state funded job training classes in Fiberglass, Composites and Plastics ROP classes, Gov. Arnold cut back on school budgets and since I would not follow my directors orders to pass High School students that did not earn a passing grade...they closed my program.....a long story...) I'm getting back in to really running the business again!

I'll be starting a new thread to get some "end user" idea feedback on these new panels too.

My Kick panels are .060" thick which is thinner then the others but that is one reason I can offer then for less $'s, saves shipping costs plus they fit better too!

Mine are not unbearable to look at but those look way cleaner than what I'm working with. I'll for sure be getting a set of those. Cool

Hey werksberg, can you supply the kick panels without the hole for the footwell heaters? Want to make a change on my "T" to see if I can get more air flow, and will not need to original hoses once I do so.

Checked your eBay site and didn't see door panels for a late Bay. Do you have those?

Muchas Gracias

werksberg - I will definitely be ordering up a set on kick panels for my '73 eventually. Mine are horrible. Crying or Very sad Do you have ones to fit a '73? How much for both and for shipping to Northern Alberta?

For what it's worth, I'll give another testimonial about Werksberg's panels. They are awesome! They fit perfectly.
