I usually look forward to the cool modifications and character that the KCW guys add to their rides, but I have to agree with Rusty on this one....I feel that this one deserves to be done up stock.

That red on the fresh air cover looks awesome, would be rad to see this whole thing that color. Not very common to see all red commercial busses, but its a good look in my book.

red is stayin for sure... and there is a thread on samba about the bus already... tells the story of when is was found in canada.. very cool.

My current thoughts.. All rust repaired and shiney... RED!!!! for sure.. try to duplicate everything about the bus, even the logo's.. but I think I will build me another lowered 2L bus...

Yep John.. You have to have another lowered bus... its your style. So.. what will you do with seating in a swivel seat? Will you add more seats? Or keep it a single seater?

At times regret selling you the swivel seat. ](*,)

Probably one of the coolest buses I have ever had, but my lack of a quality skill set would have never got it done.

I think a simple and tasteful drop on the stock 15" bus wheels would look amazing.

Thanks guys.. It's time for me to build another bus.. I need it..

I will try to not be too grumpy and sleep deprived.. but I want to work on it and get it done.. which is not going to happen without some serious effort and sacrifice... you guys know the drill... it won't restore itself..

the nicest thing so far is no one else has ever tried to take the bus apart.. so none of the screws are pre-stripped out... =D> =D> =D> =D>
if you keep going in circles.. Your never gonna get anywhere :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k
