High Roof vs Low Roof Factory differences

Beitragvon Robjota » 29.12.2018, 15:23

Hi

Can you tell me the differences in construction between the high roof and low roof L319. The Roof covering difference is obvious but the supporting ribs, Transverse and Longitudinal, are these the same with an intermediate section welded in or are they in fact completely new sections. If anyone has some photos of the inside "high" roof, it would help to answer the question.

Thank you
Rob

Gday Rob,
I searched the interwebs to maybe find a internal high roof picture but I had no luck apart from the standard factory roof.
You would think back in the day, they would of kept it simple and just extended the rib curve?
Unless someone provides a picture of their own high roof then it may remain a mystery.

Cheers,
Brad

Hello Brad

I did subsequently find a photo of a high roof thanks ...Yes it appears to be one piece structure (not an infill piece) but I still cant really be sure.. However its the profile I'm interested in as its clearly not just a case of extending the height of an existing roof, the geometry will all be wrong..

Nice photo, is that your van ?..

Rob

Thanks for your photos...
Looks like without the hi top roof skin, the profile of the low top will be too large and just wrong without sectioning.

The work is a credit to you...
Regards Rob

I bought my 319 some years ago, november 2009. It had a high roof. I do not know who put this roof on it. When I did the restauration I found a very bad construction. So I changed it with self made profiiles. The roof is all metal so quite strong!

Thank you for your photos, the Bus looks very well restored, I couldn't divert my eyes from the Beautiful chassis :)
