    Hole in doghouse

    Cruzbox,
    what’s the square hole in the doghouse near the back? Just curious. I’ll be doing the sectioning and removable doghouse project soon, and wondering what i need to consider. Also, doing new wiring and wondering if/where you are bringing wires through the doghouse.
    thanks,
    ry

    On mine that hole is how I check the oil on my V-8. I cut one in when I replaced my 1st Gen doghouse. Put a gas door off a truck on it as a door...
    But, I am just guessing?

    You guest it!

    Spot on Jacke, i'm running taller valve covers and did a cut out and welded in new stop edges on the dog house and used the cut out piece for the door with the addition of a hinge and a 1/4"-20 nut(threads for a screw) welded in place , also I added a couple of "domes" for the PVC and breather/ vent for clearance. you can see the door in the parts that are hanging.

    I like the way you did the attachment hinge for the opening. I need to re-due the way I threw mine on... It does not stay closed when I drive, I will be attaching a better hinge after seeing yours. Maybe the darn thing won't blow open with a clasp as well?!

    Nice work for sure looking sharp.

    Very nice!

    Very nicely done! Thats the coolest thing about the build of our beloved Van, there are no limitations to what your vision is and sometimes your on the same wavelength as another member or you push open a door in their mind to look at something different 👍 its all good!

    Time to start sanding again!

    So I have to say its been a nice couple weeks break from bodywork, I really got to a point where I needed more room so I spent some over due quality time on my 71 Vega so I can move it out of the shop.
    I did find a new source for Bronze door hinge bushing material, McMaster Carr👍
    Anyways doing a cleanup today and will be back to sanding on the old girl tonight or tomorrow, cruzbox

    Straightening out the grill.

    So I came up with a 3/8 piece of stock on the back side and clamp it to one on the front. Please shear how you did yours and the results, thanks cruzboxClick image for larger version.

    Moving along!

    After playing with the grill a little more I moved on to my Dremel tool and a small wire wheel to clean up the radius and hard to reach spots👍 More 180 grit sanding tomorrow, Miller Time!

    I did decide to move the outside antenna to the inside for a little cleaner look.

    Need your guys in put.

    So I could use your in put on how to blend the bottom of the nose to the front end? Is it just body caulk that fills these gaps? Thanks Click image for larger version.
