no previous part Part 1 of VW Bulli camper bus series Part 2: Cabine, Chapter 1 »

This is the blog of the building of the VW bus according my pattern.

This build is from the prototype and after this is done I always do some changes in the drawing where necessary. So the final plan is a little (better) different. I used mostly Chery and Ash for the build.
. Comments are much appreciated.

That is a great job you did building and documenting the build. I once had a 1962, 23 window Microbus with sliding roof. I wish I still had it as the prices are out of sight. Of the 30 odd vehicles I’ve owned, the bus had to be one of my all time favorites.

Quite a pile of parts Jan. I do love the results you got with this project. I will be fun to follow this blog to see how you built it.
