this looks like the ultimate adjustable tie down system for my SC...
one track on each side gate
front wheel adjustable chocks for each scoot
a few extra single tie down locations as needed

battery is secure = added some metal (painted black)
put some rubber matting under it to keep everything corrosion free
removed paint from the grounding bolt for battery

Q's...
- since the passenger side door is not a key type handle on these old bus how would the door be locked when your parked / at night. Is there a inside locking button...??
- if I install a driver side handle on the passenger side and it is locked (by key or button) can I open the door without the key by using the inside handle or would the key be needed...??

I assume I could just get 2 driver side handles and use them both but that might mean I would then have 2 keys made since, I believe, they can't be re-keyed... is that right guru's...??

my guess is A. you can lock the passenger door from the inside, and B. if you did go the keyed handle route, a locksmith could set the two on the same key.

I didn't realize the passenger side didn't have a key back then. I agree with Joe though, if a drivers side will work on the passenger side, then a lock smith could probably key them the same. Might have to round up some donor locks to steal pins from though. I'll do some research on it.

I would think that you can't j just flip a handle because mirror image might not actuate in the right way. Ask miles or someone on a vw board? There has to be some sort of a lock but I never thought of vw's as highly secured vehicles.
