That's after I get the rest of the roof fixed. I will be placing that order with Gerson as soon as the tax man pays me a visit.

I think outy louvers and lipped wheel wells were carried all the way through the '63 run.
That's a nice looking panel BTW. Looks like those pics of NOS panels that you see now and then.

My April '64 Double Cab has "outy louvers" and the lipped wheel wells. They must have had some left over from '63. Who knows?

Not sure we are going to keep it, looking into what it would take to get it going.

Trucks are cool, they kept the same corner vents, 8 outies, all the way up to '65. In '66 they went to the 3 rows of 3 innie vents above the wheel wells which carried over into the baywindow era. Buses had 9 outies or 10 innies, early/late.

Nothing new on the quarter panel for the DD. It's been slow going because it seems kinda technical to get this panel to fit correctly. So I walk away and come back to it another day.

Besides, I'm in full swing on my 66 Westy/Dormobile Convert project.

I got this done today on that project:

Got a pneumatic hole punch for these jobs:

This is the Westy/Dormobile. Just got the full cargo floor and some of the 14" high "B" pillars in the mail today from Gerson. Also got the front and rear chassis cross braces.
