Thank you for the welcome.

My background is in rebuilding air cooled VWs with a Jeep thrown in the mix. Just happened across this LUV and was in a position to get it so now I tinker.

What will eventually go under the hood....? 8O

The sheet metal was rotted out, I expect from the evap container in the bed. I cut out a square and riveted in a piece of a soffit vent that I coated with industrial enamel. My solution to a bad design, we do Gambler 500 style out here in OR! :lol:
