I'll let Wren tell the story, cause I don't really know it.. I do know that I get to fix it though.. Yesterday was a half day around here, so I got the frame cut out and straightened, and the inner lower valance fit.. Hopefully today, I will be close to done with metal work on this thing...

WREN! Did you see this thread? Kevin is all worried about your bus being perfect because you're my friend. Its definatly turning out nice. Nose is on as of tonight, I suspect some final welding and bodywork will happen tomorrow. Kevin will probably post some pictures in the morning.

I did fix your wiring today too...That was a complete fucking mess. Did ANY of your electical system work? Other than the ingition coil wire...

Yeah, Looks good. Thanks Kevin! Posted this bus up this winter, under readers rides. The bus has a little rust in the drivers side rocker but is solid everywhere else. It’s a 64 not any big man shit but a nice late bus, can’t complain. This bus will be a super fun daily driver. I live in the middle of nowhere and I drive rough roads daily so this bus has a stock beam and large tires. The only problem with this bus when I bought it is it had been hit in the front. I cut the nose off last week and I know KCW can get that shit back together! Thanks Kevin!!! Not sure about the wiring Franz. I had some redneck mechanic in Gunnison look at it and he said it was fine but its always done weird shit. Its' never been right. Thanks Guys I got the beers this weekend!!!!! \:D/
