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.



If you don’t look too closely you might swear this is another dropped Doka truck. Nope! This is a custom modified air-cooled VW van. The tires look huge on this thing because she’s dropped. All it needs now is the right paint job to make her really stand out.

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.

What in the world is this? It looks like the Mystery Machine without the middle. Nice hack.

guage-setup

Vanagon owners love gauges. We have already seen several gauge placement ideas, but this gauge setup caught my eye. It comes from a 1982 Vanagon previously owned by Rick Gordon. The mount is big, but aimed up at just the right angle for viewing. I’m not sure it would fit a Vanagon with an automatic transmission due to the shifter, but I like the placement. You can find other gauge ideas here. You might also notice an organizer mounted on the dashboard.

If you have a spare $65,000 laying around you can buy this 1987 Vanagon GL Synchro Westfalia called Big Red. Her owners have completely restored her, but it’s time to let her go. It was recently posted on The Samba and she’s a beauty. Click through for more.

This rustic interior out of a 1980 VW Vanagon caught my eye. The kitchen actually extends out quite a bit from the wall as compared to other Westys. It doesn’t look like the best use of space, but it is interesting. Click through for a picture of the van’s exterior.

If you have the skills and the knowhow, you can turn a $500 used Vanagon from Craigslist into an awesome travel vehicle. Gregoire S. Blachon did just that and documented his build on YouTube. He stripped the van and rebuilt everything from the ground up. Awesome job! Click through for an incredible build video that will make you jealous!

orly

This gorgeous Vanagon has a fresh coat of paint and lots of accessories. I found it in the Vanagon Owners forum on Facebook. The owner, Ton Villano, says the color is called Orly blue. He has a solar panel sitting on his Yakima Sky Box and a South African front grill. Also of interest is a storage box on the back of the van, side ladder, and awning. All he needs now is a set of Go Westy wheels. I love this color!
