Took some pics of some of the various things in my Westy and got some rough measurements of them.

I have read some threads that people are asking how big is something is?
So, I'll take some more pics and measurements and post them here.

If anyone else would like to add their own, please do.
These are just rough measurements and my Westy is an '87,
so not all may be the same?

It's 13 1/2" from floor to bootom of bench seat on my Westy.

When the bench is in the bed position there is a 14" over hang from the kick panel of the bench to the end of the bed.

Oh, this is awesome. Do you mind if I snag the images and post them up to the Vanagon Wiki? (we're in the process of rebuilding it)

I realize this is old and you've probably figured it out by now, but mine is about 18".

Thanks Timwhy for the effort!

I also wanted to just pop in here and add the word " drawing " to this thread, because i was searching for dimensioned drawings and didn't find this. But this is just as helpful, or more so.

What is the spacing between the dots on the floormats? How far apart are the knobs on the front of the stove?

Very Happy

great work! .... but

Only three nations out of 203 have not officially adopted the International System of Units as their primary or sole system of measurement: Burma, Liberia, and the United States of America.
The United States is the only industrialised country in the world that has an aversion to using the International System of Units as its predominant system of measurement.

Countries which have officially adopted the metric system (green).

Hey, even Britain is using the metric system... In fact the british TV chef Keith Floyd on a show once said: "And then we take a metric handful of sugar..." Laughing

... Thanks for pointing out the longshot odds that an inch-based person would be the one motivated enough to measure, photo, and edit photos for clarity to share with the world...

On the flip side, I guess the odds are pretty high that someone would whine about it not being in millimeters Wink
