Custom Hot Wheels VW T2 Part II

Custom VW Bus UpdateCustom VW Bus UpdateCustom VW Bus UpdateCustom VW Bus UpdateCustom VW Bus UpdateCustom VW Bus UpdateCustom VW Bus UpdateHad a little time this weekend to work on the custom VW T2 Bus. I started by filing and trimming a finishing nail that will be used as the center post for the windshield. Once I cut it to size, I secured it to the body with JB Weld. I’m kicking around the idea of safari windows and still may go that direction, but in the meantime, I’ve modified the front windshield so it’ll still fit securely into the body. I had to cut a groove to accept the new center post. I’m not a fan of the blue tinted glass in this bus, so again, I may go with safari windows and custom glass for the back. I also started on the custom visor. I want the visor to look like something that a person couldn’t buy, but had to make themselves. The story if this bus is slowly starting to develop and I can almost see the finished version. I want it to look custom, but I also want it to look like a work truck. The bumpers on this will be heavily modified to look more like real T2 bumpers. Some will say that this would’ve been easier with a different casting, but what fun would that be?
