Pretty complicated job there and looks like you pulled it off admirably.

Nice job on the window patch. Check out the "coat hanger" technique to fill large gaps Bad Chad used recently on his Hudson project.

Evasesh says:

Im just wondering why you didnt just cut out the entire window from the parts body and weld the entire thing in the one you are working on. Looking at it, it may have been easier and fixed a lot of the pitted seams on the rest of the window.

Raymond Dawson says:

Use a coat hanger to fill in the gaps .

Gary Mallard says:

I would cut your patch panel over cutting that close to the grilles…. less chance of disaster or some warping…. leave as much metal as you can away from something that detailed… alot less finish work later too and easier to sand/grind if you have your joint farther away.. and put those repair pieces ( small rust areas and gaps ) in before you weld this piece in…again it is easier to do when it is off vehicle and you can add the metal and trim it easier …

I was conserned with you welding that close to the vent holes but after you cleaned up the welds it does not look that bad. I bet with a little clean up with a round file you can get them to look factory.

TheOriginalLugnuts says:

Why not cut the whole base of the window including the vents sense you have to fix both sides?

Helge Heyerdahl says:

Great. About time you drive a vintage VW product as a daily driver soon, probably beeing the biggest VW collector in your area. 🙂
