|that's one ugly wall|
Last Fall, I removed and sold off the little kitchen to another fellow bus lover because I couldn't fit the kitchen and the middle bench seat (See: Vanagon Seat Install). That left a very ugly interior between the old fridge cabinet and the backside of the driver's seat. Since I'd already constructed door cards for the front cab doors, I figured "how hard could it be?" Turns out, the answer is "easy!".
|measurements for wall-card|
I figured out a few tricks with my tools along the way. I have a right-angle, but to make sure I measured a consistent number of inches out as I created a line parallel to the edge, I put a spot of tape at the right length. Then, I just needed to mark at the tape edge, slide the right-angle and repeat. Then, it was a simple matter of aligning the dots with a straight-edge. This removed the possibility of mis-measuring one or more of the dots. Also, I used clamps and the steel straight-edge to set a fence against which I ran the Dremel-router so I got a nice straight cut.
I still need to address the old kitchen vent hole, as it doesn't have a corresponding hole in the wall card, nor anything blocking it up. That should be relatively straightforward to solve. I have the very rear end still needing a card too. Well, there's always something. That's the beauty of having the bus in this condition. I can drive him every day and still enjoy working on him any weekend. As always, thanks for following along...
