I’ve been looking for an original paint 50-52 dashpod for a while and I recently found what i wanted.
Here is what I received yesterday and its restoration.
I’ve been looking for an original paint 50-52 dashpod for a while and I recently found what i wanted. It required a little love though, as a piece of metal have been cut on one side and it’s have been repainted once….
So here is how I receicved it yesterday :
And here is how it looks like now after all the crappy paint removed and the metal section rebuild in a piece of OG paint metal.
You can note that the correct 50-51 fuse box covers with metal buttons have been installed. They are the same as the one used on split beetles.
I also managed to find a pair of original papers to put behind the fuses.
Nice patina, eh ?
The Speedo is also specific to 50 and 51 busses…. Here is a picture with a 52 Deluxe speedo. Can you spot the difference ?
The odometer is a few millimeters higher on the 51.
Looking forward to install it into the bus !
Quand tu dit après avoir retiré la peinture superflue, tu fait comment ?
En tout cas c'est vraiment très beau !
That looks awesome, can't believe how good you have made it look.....ur bus is gonna look fab when it's finished!!!
