Do you have any measurements and pictures of your lost hatch?

Liisa,

The rear baggage door on the '68 is relatively easy to make. VTS has the extrusions for the door and all of the hardware (handle, bulb seal, cam-lock); you would need a piece of 2024 aluminum for the panels. All-in it should cost you about $150.

I've rebuilt mine and replaced the seals. It's a few hour project to do.

I've made some compartment doors with the VTS extrusion, they turned out good but it wasn't all that easy to make the mitered cuts. I have a used rear door and I know Silver Trailer supply has doors from time to time. Just make sure you take good measurements because there are some different sizes,I found this out the hard way.

Are there any threads showing how to make a replacement compartment door with the VTS materials? I need to make three and I'm stumped.

Thanks!

Need Refrigerator Access Hatch Cover

Hey folks,

Brand new member...first post. I bought a '68 Overlander a couple of months ago, and the replacement of all missing/damaged parts is going well. The last missing piece is the refrigerator access hatch cover. The inside measurements of the hatch are 11" W X 13" H. I have no problem making one from the VTS extrusions, etc., but I don't know if it should be vented, like the water heater hatch cover. Any info or available replacement hatch covers for sale would be appreciated.

Bill

The access panel ( hatch cover ) for the fridge is not vented. ( at least not on mine )….Check to see if there is a vent on the floor of the fridge rear access compartment…Then you'll know for sure.

Hi Mike... I hope you pick up on this. Do you still have a hatch cover for a '71 Ambassador floating around?

Best -Jeff

Hi Bob... I know its been a while but I am suffering the same fate with our '71 Ambassador. How did you resolve this situation?

Many thanks -Jeff
