1976 bus needs a nose job!
« on: August 05, 2011, 11:08:55 PM »
Hey all,

The previous owner of our 1976 bus hit  a parked car and smashed the right side of the nose pretty good. It was also left out in the open sea breeze air and developed a nice case of the rusties. Basically, I am guessing that the damage is irreversible and we need to replace the nose altogether. Anyone know where we can get one?

Also,  does anyone know where we can get a passenger door?

I'd recommend taking it to a good VW body shop -- they'll know how to find good used sheet metal.
Here's one source.
