(Can be removed); Replaced LP tank valves; replaced slider door latch and bushings; had all locks keyed to match by Steve’s lock shop through the Vanagon Owners Group on FB; BZ pop-up shelf installed; Replaced all wood structure in camper from subfloor to bench frame and upper bunk floor; Installed vinyl floor tiles (will include extra tiles for future replacements/repairs). GoWesty’s Fridge vent blocking panel installed but vent was left for possible future use)BenT’s front clamshell extension allowing use for fake spare tire garage (parts seen in pic included, i.e. extra fuel line, couple of Mann oil filters, couple of alternator belts)Professionally designed & installed auxiliary (2) 6v battery system installed with Victron combiner, Blue Seas circuit panel (only a few slots used/ ready for lighting, etc), usb/charge readout, 12v jack, dual 2.1 USB jacks on face of bench).

Campervan Culture door pockets installed, Driver’s and passenger’s.Added a Lucky’s Fab Shop A/C window mount with a small window unit (as seen in the Driver’s window while summer camping in pics)Previous owner pressed the speedometer reset while moving and stopped it reading. VW Vanagoons know better than to do this but also know it is easily repairable. Everything added had been stripped (as evident from a few extra holes in the dash to the electrical conduit ran from the dash to the underside above the clamshell). I, however, have no interest in keeping anything I worked so hard to install. It should all stay so the old girl (Her name is Mia) can just get better. She’s ready for solar and a LP heater install. (I never got as far as solar or shore electric but I will include the 2 new GoWesty shore power electric hookups I have (water heater can be ran off shore power when ran through installed dual switch).I will include the original hardware for upper bunk
BenT’s hatchback lock extension, A/C unit (less than 50 hours on it) & rubbermade tote, wheel chocks and levelers, 25’ gray water hose and two 25’ potable water hoses, 4” sewer drain hose connection, rubbermade tote including ratchet straps (for attaching to hatchback rack shelf).Several things left to do that are perfect for your customization. For instance the headbanger cabinet was never rebuilt. Nor the kitchen gutter shelf. I had an arm surgery when it came time to create rear cabinets so I simply installed 4 aluminum cabinets with Phillips screws. All 4 and their wood base can easily be removed. Lights are ready to run and there are 10 circuits open in the 12 fuse Blue Seas block.We will provide a complete list and receipts for all updates and parts installed.
Edited to add: forgot to mention that I added sound dampening insulation to the interior of the walls as well as the entire camper floor. Also spray glued double voluble insulation to the floors and interior of the walls as well. (See progress pic)Previous owner replaced a section of the passenger side rear impacted in an accident and had entire van repainted. I wouldn’t have noticed except I had the inside of the walls open. No “kitchen wall rust”. I sanded and treated all areas with PO-15 prior to installing insulation.
