Building "Dylan", Bob's 2003 Eurovan Westy Weekender.

I just started some work on a great low mileage(56k) 2003 Eurovan Westfalia weekender for a cool guy named Bob.

Despite being a low mile van it still needs a little cleaning up and some custom bits to truly make is "Bob's van" and not just another generic Eurovan.

Bob also has a 71 Bus but wanted something a bit more modern no powerful to travel in.

Every cool van deserves a nick name. When Bob dropped off this van it has a pile of Bob Dylan CDs in the front seat. So what better name for the van than Dylan? :sombrero:


Here is the van the day he dropped it off!











I know most people don't car or notice stuff like this but the complete lack of paint on the two hooks drives me nuts. So I'll be touching up all the little details like this that I can .



Top seal is coming off. This is pretty typical of these vans. The seal dries up and the glue loses its stick.

While we are waiting for some parts to arrive I stated the clean up process and fixing the little things like this missing rear hatch emblem.





The front seat bases and rear bed supports came out yesterday for some custom work.



Trailer hitch is here and ready to go on!

Any updates here? I just picked up a 2001 Eurovan weekender and I'd love to see what you were able to come up with.

Thanks!

Thanks! There are several vans that I've never posted too. So just ask!


Realized that there are many pictures missing from this thread.
