It turns out the leaky sealant in the drip rail was also the only thing holding the roof skin to the vehicle.
With the drip rails clear, lifted the the roof to treat the otherwise inaccessible rust.

Plenty of rusty flakes

A section cleaned up with a wire wheel. Thankfully the structural areas were still sound.

Here is the roof and drip channel ready to be made into a POR-15 sandwich

With everything done, rusty roof areas were:
wire brushed
vacuumed
degreased with simple green
rinsed,
treated with POR-15 metal prep or Ospho.
rinsed again
left to dry
drip channel painted with POR-15
roof skin refitted
painted top of roof flange with POR-15
sealed with a good quality seam sealer.

I would worry about the fronts more as you can lift back. I had 7' on the front of my 71 with no rubbing. My buddy has 8' 235/15's on his 69 but not reverse and sometimes rubs.

Re: Swivel Seat for G20 DrCaldre Yesterday at 01:33 AM
Well, went to take a look at putting in this northern tool sucker today. I basically hit a dead end because of the existing seat supports. These seat supports swapped out into the van by the previous owner, then I put express seats on them. Since a second bolt pattern has already been drilled in the floor, I'm only going to use these supports. Two of the holes on the bottom of swivel plate line up on the seat support knuckles, and two on the top line up with the cushion. So like others, I'll need something fabbed up to mount it. I don't have any equipment to cut, grind, or weld, so I'm going to have a local guy help me out after the motor goes in. The swivel is really nice and beefy though. If I wanted to spend the money, I'd definitely put one on my driver seat. Maybe later.

Re: greensboro nc clubs? ozzmonaut Yesterday at 12:28 AM
I'm in Mount Airy, NC. Not sur how far Gboro is from me. But I'm about 45 min. from Winston. If we could get a few people to meet around Winston when weather warms a bit it might be cool. I know a ton of people in the VW scene and could probably get some bus owners to show. A guy that works at the Carquest here in town is big into customizing his van. He would probably show as well.

Re: 1969 Econoline $1000 South Gate CA samhain January 16th 2021 5:28 pm
I’ve worked In Compton a many times, and hit the skatepark, never an issue. It’s not so bad, I wouldn’t go driving or walking the grid searching for vehicles. that looks like an industrial setting, no sweat. Some good bbq spots in the area.

Crips and bloods made in America is a decent documentary, to get a look at the history of the area.

May be worth partin out for someone motivated, especially if you get the price down a bit.
