Re: Aussie '67 Notch

Still been plugging away at this build. Seats pulled apart and checked over. Painted black with the visible parts painted in Anthracite. Prepared for Brad @ Bus'N'Bug to conduct some repairs and finish them off for me. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/1916441.jpg https://www.thesamba.com/vw/g...

Some more updates coming soon! Have slowly been getting a bit more done but have also been spending time working on my Harley Davidson Panhead.

Re: Aussie '67 Notch

Always hated the white dash top. So I sourced a fairly nice black one a few years ago. Once I got the dash together I decided to change the ash tray to an early flat one with the little chrome handle. Also swapped out the black dash knobs for some original ivory earlier ones.

Never liked the original white and black interior mirror. Plus it had gone chalky and brittle. So i sourced an original '66 chrome mirror which looks much better...

Nice work, just read the whole thread.

I think the fuel tank might be the wrong way round!
Thanks mate, that last photo was taken before the fuel tank was bolted in ;)

Re: Aussie '67 Notch

Realised the rear seat/ luggage compartment closing panel was missing. So i pulled the one out of my '70 Notch and made up a new one to cover with black vinyl. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/1829759.jpg https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/1829758.jpg https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/...

Re: Aussie '67 Notch

Engine is back in and have been sorting out a few jobs in the rear luggage compartment. Made a new rubber mat to lay around the hatch and gave the hatch a quick refurb. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/1829764.jpg https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/1829763.jpg https://www.thesamba.com/vw...

1970 Notch - Honey Brown

About time I posted up some photos of my other Notch. Here is a photo when I first got my Honey Brown '70 Notch on the road a few years ago.

Re: Aussie '67 Notch

The fresh air control boxes under the dash were in need of some love. Cleaned them up, removed the old perished rubber, painted and installed the new rubber seals. I found these air boxes were a pain in the ass to remove and reinstall but got it done over a few beers. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gal...
