Hi all, I thought I will let you know about my 1979 bay window project. Honestly I am completely new to air cooled VW’s and the last 12 months have been a massive learning exercise. I have plenty of experience of classic and modern cars that have had to work on over the years but this VW is something else! So to start the story. My wife has wanted a VW Baywindow for some years and we made the decision to try and find a bit of a project as completed finished cars are very expensive as most of you guys will know and they are not getting any cheaper. We had a fixed budget and we had looked at one other before we found this one. It had the benefit of having been converted with the westfalia front hinge roof at some point and had a continental interior fitted. It was out of MOT for about 3 years and had what I know now as the usual baywindow rot problem. It drove OK and had most of the bits in it to get going again as the previous owner had planned to complete the work himself and had bout various panels etc. Anyway there are some photos of what it was like as we picked it up.
