I got some peelply from the mattress shop and some material (the wife's choice)
I wanted to install it, but first had to sort out the window scrapers and 1/4 vent rubbers. Each time it rained, water was pouring into the doors.

I drilled 10mm holes like the original template and used the original clips. There were some clips that broke and I got replacements from Volkspares.
I also replaced the inner doorhandles window winders with new ones.
Andries Groenewald was so kind to take off the kickpannels off his bus so that I can make templates. Thanks Andries, you saved me a lot of time!

I am in Cape Town at the moment. I plan to continue working on the bus next week when I am back home. It has to be ready for the KKK campout in Feb.
There is still lots to do. I will post as soon as any progress happens.

When i done my interior i re cut all of the panels out of masonite used the original clips on the front doors couldn’t find new ones anywhere and i replaced most of the clips on the other panels with other straight clips. i put a thin foam and then material and stapled it around the edges at the back with the shortest staples a could . Sorry i didn’t take pics at this stage of my restoration only got a pic of how it looks now.

Looking good.

You must be so proud to have rescued her from certain demise and in the not too distant future she will be cruising the streets and helping you and your family on many adventures.... Truly awesome !

Thanks for the kind words guy's. It feels like I'm finally getting there.

I made a place for the spin on oil filter just behind the mudguard where it's out of harms way from rocks.

And I made a box out of a Indy oil drum to close the engine bay off
