This thing has been on my mind a lot lately. I’m really itching to finish getting it in primer. I want to just crank through it and get it in paint but am already committed to doing it right. It’s likely that I’ll be getting it assembled well into the summer, but I’ve heard senior semester is very front loaded, so my weekends should hopefully be opening up a bit more moving forward.
That doesn’t mean that job applications are slowing down though! Still have no idea where I’m going to end up or where. I’ve been in contact with a company that does the autonomous technology for Volkswagen though, I think it would be cool to have a hand in the next self-driving bus!John JonesKeymasterMarch 7, 2018 at 12:43 pmPost count: 2998
I can’t wait till you finish it either….. 😎John JonesKeymasterMarch 26, 2018 at 7:35 amPost count: 2998
After you graduate, are you gonna come hang out for a few months and get your bus done?? 😎FranzKeymasterMarch 26, 2018 at 8:12 amPost count: 1421
Bus restos are easy.
Just a little paint, some new rubber and a good round of cleaning.WillyModeratorMarch 27, 2018 at 10:38 amPost count: 427
Yeah that’s the plan! Slapping this thing together should take more than a few days, right?? ????PeetParticipantApril 4, 2018 at 10:37 amPost count: 133
Hey Will.. If this has turned into an “Overwhelming and unachievable” project for you Im willing to give you fair money for the basket case that it has become. Think about itWillyModeratorApril 10, 2018 at 11:33 amPost count: 427
Thanks Peet but I think I’m already emotionally invested in its completion! I need to have something to show for all the pain and suffering I’ve caused you all! Plus I can’t be without a real bus…
I might be able to help set you up with something though if you’re looking to build a camper… ?John JonesKeymasterApril 12, 2018 at 7:21 amPost count: 2998
when do you start getting in my way…. ? 😎FranzKeymasterApril 12, 2018 at 8:11 amPost count: 1421
Are you going to be here all summer restoring a bus?
We’ll have to get you making some money for the shop.WillyModeratorApril 12, 2018 at 9:59 amPost count: 427
Haha probably not ALL summer…. ??
But I’m sure we can think of something for me to do.
Graduation is May 12, so probably shortly after that I’ll be packing some shit up and heading out your wayJohn JonesKeymasterApril 13, 2018 at 8:35 amPost count: 2998
I guess it all depends on how far you want to get it before you head to southern cali… I say you finish it,, put a fork in it and get it done, once and once for all!!!!!
I’m going to find some shitty work for this kid to do while he is here…8-) because I love ya will…. 😎 I’d ike to empty out my dirty shop and repaint it glossy white again…. 😎FranzKeymasterApril 13, 2018 at 8:45 amPost count: 1421
I have a engine core/parts semi trailer that needs organized and stacked too.ColeBParticipantApril 13, 2018 at 8:46 amPost count: 582

Make sure you wear a full hazmat suit for that! I helped move one corner of green metal and sweep off the dust and I thought I was gonna die my lungs were so full of dust! haha That dirty shop is awesome! So much gets done in there
