Interior progress on the '68 Riviera

I've started working on the interior of the '68. I painted the driver's area, cleaned up and reinstalled the dash, and I removed the headliner so I can paint the ceiling. I also found some great interior panels and a rubber mat at the pick n pull in Antelope. This is the first time they've had a bus in about two years. Luckily, it had some parts that I desperately needed. My friend Eric Zitzman sold me a really nice rear bench seat, while my buddy Bob Frith gave me a middle seat frame and decent steering wheel. It pays to have friends who have old VWs. When you give away parts, they tend to come back to you in multitude.

Making some progress

It's going awfully slow, these days. I haven't had a lot of time to work on the bus. Here is a picture of the front end as it is almost finished. Almost time to move on to another section.
