01/31/12 Lee Irby Great job! All VW microbus lovers should check out my novel, THE VAN. It's about the life and times of a 1964 Type II as it cruises through history. Here's the link:

I took a crappy front hoop and turned it into a mediocre rear one by welding on a new lower bracket. The bracket was fabbed from a piece of angle iron.

For some reason, the lower front hoop bolt doesn't line up.

04/04/03 *sOFi* hey can someone e-mail me with an explanation of what exactly is the use of the canvas on top of the bus that extends upwords?? That's been puzzling me for a while.
P.S.- I am not yet a Microbus owner, but I'm definetely in love with it :o) Someone please write me back and let me know what that is for. Thankyou.

These were original equipment on ambulances and fire trucks. There was a complementary front tow hook, which I have yet to find.

05/22/13 chipuko This is a smart article. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.
