I thought I just saw this like a day ago on the Randomness post... and it is already torn down and blasted. Really guys... unbelievable. =D> =D> =D>

Help me out (and everyone else who is to shy to ask), what is a "spring frame" and how is it different than other buses? :-k :-k :-k

Was already blasted and just a enough mechanicals to make it a roller when she arrived.
I believe the spring frame relates to the bed???

Yep, the first version of the Westfalia camping interior I believe was the "Campingbox" which featured a (now very rare) spring frame bed.

Good day yesterday... after he cut the front floor out, Pat welded 9,123,168 holes yesterday!!!! Someone LOVED drilling holes in this bus.... #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o and ground some of those too.. #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o I started on the front... nose... I was hoping I could just yank it out.. but the nose pulled away from the outer valance.. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) so, I had tp cut the bottom of the nose off to fix the outer valance first... then I will beat that nose into shape and put it back on! Look how clean it was behind this nose.. amazing!!!!!!! =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Up early getting our work done before the kanuk invasion. :-# :-# :-# :-# :-# :-# :-#

Why? Why so many holes? Maybe something was screwed down?
