I need those guys sometimes to keep me from doing stupid stuff! Which is why I’m not sanding the roof now as much as I’m scraping it…. I tried a technique to spread a large area where you stagger your hardener ratios to let it all dry at the same time so you can sand it all at once, and failed. Spending my day redoing it all now!
Don’t go googling “how to restore a VW” and trying their techniques when you have experts nearby??????
I love going on adventures in our bus!!!RustabusParticipantJune 5, 2018 at 9:12 pmPost count: 799
Damn! That’s what I’ve been doing for Years!!!!;) 🙂WillyModeratorJune 6, 2018 at 2:15 pmPost count: 426
I know! Thats what someone (John) told me to do though! ????
I finally got the roof back to being naked and I’m gonna hold off on doing anything else to it for a while. Going to focus on doing some other stuff that is a little more simple to do and harder to mess up! I want to make sure everything is done right!
When the bus was clearanced for the beetle exhaust it had on it at some point they had to raise the rear bumper up, so they made brackets from thick steel and welded them to the bumper. I cut those off and ground down all the remaining welds so that they can be blasted here soon and be ready to go when I get closer to working them straight.
I think I’m gonna move to the wheel wells now and start cleaning them out, grinding down any welds, and getting them smoothed out and ready for some primer. Simple things! ?John JonesKeymasterJune 7, 2018 at 9:28 amPost count: 3170

Pat just evicted Will from the Dirty shop. Maybe not so good of a pointer??John JonesKeymasterJune 7, 2018 at 12:42 pmPost count: 3170
If history is any indication… I bet he has destroyed the dirty shop and Pat wants to get back to making some money!… kick his ass out and get a clean reset!!!!!WillyModeratorJune 7, 2018 at 1:26 pmPost count: 426
You just know all too well John…. ??? Thats exactly what he did! Better now, I just owe the guys some crack coffee or beers. Pat was ready to tear into Tara’s bay and is already well on his way.John JonesKeymasterJune 8, 2018 at 9:28 amPost count: 3170

Haha I was doing downhill mountain bike laps at Powderhorn and got a little too confident after a black diamond trail. I decided to see how fast I could do a blue top to bottom without stopping and washed out on a corner near the bottom of the mountain and must have caught a rock while I was sliding across the dirt… ???
I think I’m gonna just take some Advil, keep my arm wrapped up, and keep going on my bus. It’s close to 2k so I can’t stop now!68tintopParticipantJune 11, 2018 at 12:38 pmPost count: 420
