Camperisation Part 4

Pulled the pop top roof and “luggage rack” from the old ’82 Westy. Boy oh boy it had grown a lot of lichen and dirt in the last year and a half. I pressure washed them, scrubbed with a Scotch-Brite pad and Simple Green, then sanded the outside. The time consuming part was getting the old caulk off, where the roof and skylight seals were. Next step will to be filling the 2 holes at the back or the pop top where I had eye bolts installed (lashing points for canoe) and checking for any cracks that need repair. The “Wurstfalia” sticker was a practical joke played on me by a friend. I didn’t have a Westy sticker back there ( I suspect the roof had been repainted before I got the van) and my friend snuck by the house and put that sticker on. It got comments.

    I really liked that wurstfalia logo.. But not sure I’d want to wear it.

      it was worse than that, originally it was “worstfalia”. I wore that for a few years then scratched parts of the “O” off to make an “U” with an umlaut.
      It was a good practical joke, my friend had it on my van for about 2 weeks before I noticed it.
