led-swivel-vanagon

In case you don’t have enough light in your Westy, you can follow a fellow Westy owner’s installation of swivel LED lights on the ceiling. People find all kinds of ways to add lights to their Westys, but this is one of the nicest installations we’ve seen. At $39 these lights look to be a great deal. Click through to see how it’s done.

This Vanagon has rear cabinets on both sides of the bed with an overhead storage above. It looks a bit dated, but what Vanagon isn’t dated these days. If you click through you can see additional overhead storage above the rear bed.

wing-window-wind-noise

Like most Vanagon owners I had wind noise coming from my wing window (the triangle window on the front door). I inspected the window seal and it looked like it was perfectly sealed against the window, yet I still got wind noise at speeds over 40 MPH. I thought perhaps the noise was coming from the door seals so I placed some weather stripping around the door jam, but I still got the wind noise. Click through to see how I solved it once and for all.

These custom door panels are laser cut to your specs. I ran across these on Etsy by a company called VanagonDwellers. They can make almost any pattern you send them and the panels will be ready to install with all clip holes. Not bad.



We added an additional fluorescent light to the passenger’s side of the Vanagon. We had to fish from the back light, but that wasn’t so bad. You can purchase these lights at GoWesty for about $55 and install it yourself. It adds a lot of light to the cab.

I always try to use every bit of space in the Vanagon so I can keep the floor space clear. Not only do I keep lights under the jump seats for indirect lighting at night, I mounted a paper towel holder under one of the seats to maximize space. It works great! I have little plastic organizer boxes under the other jump seat so this one was just asking for something to be placed there.

wood-trim-dash

How would you like to have wood trim in your Vanagon? This guy has added wood to the dash, doors, and gear shift and it looks great. He has also re-upholstered his seats, added carpet and a South African steering wheel to complete his custom interior. Looks great!
