"Do you have a solution for the lack of pedals and park brake handle?"

I'm just using the ones from the parts van that I used for the rest.
the hinges on the van were shot.

1963 VW Micro-bus part 2

I had to correct the dash, as I had never seen on as in the kit.
Where the kits dash extended flat to the bottom, there would have been a shelf, it's there now, and the grab handle is no longer a solid bar , but a handle as it should be.

The vents in the roof are non-existent in the kit. So I made one.

A friend found a Revell Roller Skate Van at a swap meet and thought I'd like it.
He was right I did like it, and thought it would be good sitting beside my bus.
But I noticed the the Van still had the interior engraved on inside, (another thing the kit don't have).
Sorry, but I never took a pic of the van before tearing it down.

I also liked the chassis as it had a bit more detail, (the heat duct leading to the front).
so I ground out the chassis from the van floor and the chassis from the bus.
