Awesome work! Get it down to the camp out and have a beer. You deserve it after dealing with that.

Re: 76 Westfalia Sweet Pickle

You have a compression fitting in the hard brake line going to a caliper in a photo above, those are not safe on brake lines and probably not legal.

Re: Woodward Dream Cruise 2020

I think if you stay north of 14 Mile you should not be hasseled. County Sherrif and State PD might be an issue the whole length of the strip h ticket book in hand for the rice and muscle guys.

I will probably be at the Mi VW group at the northern end and come in off a side road.

I do have a question. Does anyone know what kind of insulation I can use to put back in or does it really matter much?

We use SeaRox from Rockwool at work in our chambers and I will get the other product for you tomorrow at work. It is Kapton faced Melamine foam.

Interesting...... I wonder if they have it titled in the US? (And is that oil splashed back onto the muffler?)
It's a clean Bus. Even if it is a leaker you could rebuild that motor for less than a set of Type IV heads.
