Pics uploaded: VW bus hinge covers for the rear hatch

Ok, this last week I has been pretty busy and I haven’t had too much time to sit down and post. But for today, I have some pics. These are the hinge covers for the rear hatch on a later model bay window vw bus. These have turned yellow a bit but are still in good shape. If you have the westy cabinet on one side, you wont be able to put this up there. Not enough room. Interestingly, one of the screws that holds the cover to the corner, can be seen through the body of the bus if you look in the cooling vents.PicsĀ HERE.

More projects for the bus…Partial VW Westy interior and an air conditioner?

Im not sure if the air conditioner will make it in too soon, but we’d like to see the Westy interior installed by the time we head for EveryBus. My weekend starts tomorrow and my four year old son has promised he would help me work on the bus. So hopefully there will be more progress than there was last weekend, when I pretty much got tired of messing with the BN4 heater. The install on it still is not 100% complete and after a little bit of tinkering, I decided to leave it be for a few days and come back to the bus after a good rest from it. That being said, I still have many of the miscellaneous parts from Busted Bus that I still need to install. The Westy interior will only be one more item on the list. It is quite possible that the heater will be moved from its current location after installing the folding westy bed. We’ll see what happens :)
