well the fake samba weve been doing so before i revial what she looks like in paint i thought i would post a few pics of what we started with
she is a south african panel van which had had windows cut in the roof and carravan windows in the side as you can see she looked pretty good till you looked close and you could see the roof was callapsing due to all the supports being cut out when the windows went in and no new supports being put in
so what have we done i here you say
well a short run down of the work so far
remove the roof and weld in propper samba window sections and supports
remove long panel and replace
replace arches
repair nose
weld in proper window sections all round
massive work to make doors line up
lots of chassis and outrigger work
not much realy

andys little blue poa we have done some paint work on at the msa classic run this year i couldnt attend the event this year but will definatly be trying to make it next year

matts beetle floor pan coming alone real nice after rejecting 2 new pans weve gone back to the og one although rusty was the better one after a clean up
and after jim has worked his magic and made and welding in some repairs sections it looks as good as new

an hour later some white has gone on next the roof

the samba is finally ready for paint only been nearly three years in the making and you can barly see all the work thats gone into it which is the point i suppose can you beleive this was a panel van when it came in !!!!!!

painting these vans is turning me grey
