Default '69 RHD Crewcab resto

Heres my '69 crewy, picked her up this weekend. been after one for ages and this ones just what ive been after! the perfect daily driver







Bought off Scott Wilson of vwclassics (awesome guy, even threw in most of the bits to get the bus up to scratch) needs a few bits and pieces to get here on the road but i want the bigger jobs done and out of the way. the front bumper comes off tommorow and the lower valance gets started(hopefully)

looks like a decent one to start with - I'll be keeping my eye on this for sure / maybe I'll steal some ideas for mine, mines also a RHD not many about.
need to finish my beetle first, then I can play with 'Tricky'

what you got planned then?

doesnt need all that much for the mot but ill be getting anything sorted that needs to be done while the bus is off the road, needs front valance, small repair on the sill under the crew door, cab floors, tinware rewelding in (south african diesel engine conversion got rid of these) windscreen repair while the screen is out as all the window rubbers are shot. then ill be removing the all the running gear and rolling it over to bare metal the floor and stonechip etc. then full mechanical overhaul cant chuffin wait!! in with all that ive got to refurb the wheels and get a cover made for the back so the rain cant get in.

Got the bump[er off this morning and found this


Not to bad i thought, then looked closer on the underside and saw that there was filler all the way along. so ended up with this


then examing the whole panel a little closer




Looks like ill be looking for a new front clip, the man with the filler must have been a sculpter! only a couple of bits that gave it away.
