    What?!? Come on Cole I thought we were friends!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Haha itโ€™s not as easy as these guys make it look and when youโ€™re working on it by yourself! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    Iโ€™ve just been working on blasting and painting lots of parts lately. Gonna try and get it all airtight and assembled and then move on to my motard.

    Windwer frames painted yesterday and seat frames today. Safaris and mirror arms and some other bits tomorrow ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป

    Itโ€™s looking good! If I was halfway as done as you in the same amount of time in your position Iโ€™d be lucky! Iโ€™m excited to see this thing done. I can barely keep up with my bus and Iโ€™m not doing nearly as much work. Keep slaying it!

    It takes a long ass time to make a bus look like this!!! Still going to be at BBB though!

    Building cars is not easy… and there is a lot to think about..ย  I hope Will has learned that at a a minimum.. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  It takes a lot of time to do shit right and make it nice..ย  and making it pretty is only half the battle.. Making it functional is equally if not MORE important..ย  ๐Ÿ˜Žย  I like nice things.. but I LOVE reliable things… ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Wills been here around 4 months this go around.. and he’s been here I think two other times also… So… In the end… I bet he has at least 6 months of his life tied up in this bus….ย  ย and the last 4 months, it almost the only thing he has done.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    He’s learned a SHIT LOAD while he has been here…ย  He has been exposed to and done a lot of different work that I know will be to his advantage for the rest of his life…ย  I am confident, that Will’s time at KCW will have a positive impact on the rest of his life….ย  ย In the last few years… I have really come to appreciate the fact that I can build and maintain my own transportation.. That is a life asset…ย  ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Haha I was just kidding Cole, I thought maybe Kendall put you up to saying something along the lines of his favorite catch phrase… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    Itโ€™s super easy to underestimate the amount of time that goes into assembly, or the entire process for that matter. The guys here make it look easy, especially when theyโ€™re all working on the same project!

    Absolutely amazing the story how you found and aquired this bus and what you have done to it !

    any chance the person you bought it from could see the outcome ?

     

    way to go Will!

    working on it like he has all the time in the world…. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Not missing a detail..ย  tearing all his latches and shit apart and painting them.. so they look awesome.ย  ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย I think he is stoked to not have to be done in 12 days… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Now he can really take his time this winter and get it perfect… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  I guess he might make it to BBB 2019 after all….. Since he has the winter off from life too…. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Lucky Kid… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Sometimes I miss 22.. but I like 46 muchย  much better… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Žย  He’s been working on these windows for about a week it seems… ๐Ÿ˜Ž
