« Part 2: Cabine, Chapter 1 Part 3 of VW Bulli camper bus series Part 4: Front part 1, Chapter 3 »

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.

Not sure how you figure out what to do from the glued on patterns Jan, but it is working good for you.

Stefand he’s got another set a work sheets with more pictures of the parts with measurements and blowups of how the different parts go together.

The parts sheets he showed us on build page one really confused me at first cause I was used to getting what I needed from the plans but for those starting out [first time builders] it will be a great short cut for getting the parts cut and keeping the working drawing together.

I’ll shut up now and let Dutchy tell his own story.

Mike you can download the first 3 chapters as a PDF of the building instructions for free. Maybe this will make clear how it works.
