Annoying if you want one for sure!
Anything can be bought at a price .
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.
does anybody know where or how I can make or get this top section of the a pillar outer skin top section and the inner roof strengthener piece.
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).

Thanks, I will get a 1974 RHD for the cab floor
does anybody have an opinion on these panels
They're currently the only repair panel available for that area. They've got a bit better in recent years as they used to come with lots of wrinkles. I fitted a pair to mine and it came out ok.
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.
"little thiner" is it worth using?
the cab steps where very thinner.
is their any other place that makes them. Auto craft make only 67-71 only
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.
Keep forgetting that!
yes I am down under. Should just get the klokolohm part
Nope, it's that or a body cut.
It's not laughably thin to be fair.
why don't you have a friendly chat with a few people that deal in VW's maybe they can advise on where to get a body cut
There must be a davidoft over there!
