  3. what do you mean sorry?
    i have removed the top of the a pillar where it goes to the roof connecting strengthener. Fu(k too late... their is only 1/2" play each way. I have some photos so I should be fine and i did not take any measurement.

  5. any idea if i can use a LHD cargo floor on my RHD bus. Can I use a 1968-1972 cab floor on my 1974 kombi?

    Yes to the cargo floor but you’ll need to weld a strip to the O/S to make up the gap to the side of the van and cut a bit off the N/S. I’ll dig out some pics for you.
    The cab floor won’t fit though as the arches are different (the cutout for the step differs).

  10. is the metal the same thickness as the original? I once bought a inner cab step and it was paper thin.

    It's definitely a little thinner yes.
  12. "little thiner" is it worth using?
    the cab steps where very thinner.
  13. is their any other place that makes them. Auto craft make only 67-71 only
  14. Try getting a cut. @davidoft maybe or VWFBI come to mind.

    Parts emporium, megabug.

    Think Dean is down under so shipping might be a bit prohibitive.

    Nope, it's that or a body cut.
    It's not laughably thin to be fair.
