A shout out to a couple of samba member (I will let them chime in) one member for sending me an original early sub hatch bumper and another for reproducing me a perfect set.

Have been busy trying to get the bus ready for bulli, here are some updates on the cabinets

We ended up cleaning and repairing the original cabinets and reveneering them.

It would have been easier to just build new, but I wanted to keep as much of the original as possible

we have repaired the original veneer and we will laminate new veneer over the top of the original.

I just had the stove cabinet in there to fit the seat base.

work looks awesome!

I cant help but feel like I'm inside a bus full of zebra skins though. some 70's psychedelic trip.

were you looking for highly figured veneer? or is that all you could find?

Jake, thanks for the compliment (I think), I spent 8 months searching for someone in the USA to lay up limba veneer. Based on the samples and the first test sheet I purchased. I thought the company nailed the pattern. Now that you have pointed it out, I see what you are talking about. Fortunately it does not stand out that much when looking at with the naked eye.

Is there anyway to do this at home? My subhatch trim needed to be cleaned and in doing so removed a lot of that texture.

yep, it's called engine turning. I'd bet Gibbs can show you how to do it, it's done in sign painting (and lowrider striping) all the time

eastwood used to sell a kit, but I don't see it now
