« Part 13: Side windows, Chapter 11 Part 14 of VW Bulli camper bus series Part 15: Side doors, Chapter 13 »

.
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.

So much fun to watch you build this Jan, and I am getting some good ideas for sanding with my disk sander.

When I was getting ready to build my Bus, [that turned into a truck] I was amazed at the thought I could see put in to making these plans.
As such I love this building blog for showing details I hadn’t noticed because of going to the dark side and scratch building some parts of it just a little bit different.
This blog will be a great help for any builder to see into the plan makers real intentions for these plans.

htl, be aware that in this blog the window parts are 6mm thick. In the final drawing, in consultation with Ducky, I have decided to make them 8mm

Hi Dutchy.. first off.. fantastic work!! I’ve purchased the plans so i’ll give this a go when i have time.. one question regarding this blog. You have the trim going round the corner profiles.. is this because the half dowel is thin enough to bend without breaking? Or did you use some other process?

I love your plans by the way.. thorough and easy to follow. I particularly like the sketchup files.. makes life so much easier.. but then having these blogs by you and HTL also are invaluable.. thank you both.

Keep up the good work!

Only one word for this… ”Out Sanding”... OK, I can’t count (when it counts)...
