Re: Custom door panels

Wow...…….that door panel looks nice. I run with stock panels but would like to do that "upgrade" someday. Did you notice any noise or vibration increase now that you have metal there instead of pressboard or what ever the original material is? Did you use any sound deadening material? Just curious. ...

Re: Inverter generator in the ambulance dual Eberspächer compartment?

Mike, I too own a 712AMB. I have been pondering the same idea as you by stuffing a generator in the heater space. A rooftop A/C unit would be a very nice thing to have I agree.

Re: Fuel Pump Block-Off Plate

Thanks for all the replies concerning the fuel pump block off plate. The VW parts source is not something I would have thought of. Did a little searching and found two different plates that look like they would work just fine. One for $6 and another made of billet aluminum for $13. https://www.jbugs...
