Postby john jones » Wed Oct 29, 2014 5:17 pm

I don't know what to say just yet... except it is up.. tomorrow.. it is game on... Looks like a pretty solid bus to me.. [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< Well find out after we get it stripped completely.. They brought ALL the parts for the rig, and they were already sorted cleaned and for the most part, ready to install!!!! Should help on assy immensely!!!! also brought me metal they knew needs replaced...

it has all the cool guy/ or gal Wink WolfsBurg bus stuff.. Like the dog legs and round craddle stuff.. Floors are solid!! and thank goodness this one does not need a roof!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-# :-# :-# :-# :-# :-# Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink That will speed things up a tad too... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Never as clean as they look but this one is likely to have way less skeletons on the closet than the average 60 year old Bus!! [-o< [-o< [-o< Smile

Stripped what little parts were left and started cutting this morning.

Front cargo door upper pocket is missing the hinge screw plate.

Cargo rocker had been patched over inner and outer.
