Damn. Looks nice. But then again so did Parker's until you tore into it.

All this camper stuff has me wanting to shelve the mini bus and start digging into my high roof limo camper bus.

can't believe anyone would think those holes actually provided better access to anything.

this bus came with a campingbox kit that had the propane fridge option.

the welded up hole in the roof was for the vent. this is what should be sticking up through the hole.

JJ started on stripping yesterday. I pulled everything apart on the inside. Put her up on stand and got a good start on the front end removal.
On a dolly and fully stripped today...

Yup.. This one is Kevin's also... :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ He likes busses... I like building them... It works.. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Stripping.. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> only been painted a couple times... =D> =D> =D> =D> Factory sealer and color down there!!! I am blown away at the interior... I'll have to take some pics.. but I think it is all ORIGINAL sealer in there... So I guess this would be hanover sealer.. :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k AND the brush painted interior looks to be all still there in the back.... So we can match our tan to that... and match that hanover sealer.. if it's any different than wolfsburg.. :-k :-k :-k :-k

This bus is clean clean clean... I've found some minor rust..very minor.. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

I decided to bring the 58 because I thought it was buy 2 restorations get 1 free...apparently a misunderstanding on my part. [-( [-( But once JJ set me straight he offered me naming rights to the dirty shop...and I couldn't resist.

We are definitely "all in" on the Thursday Club

So the dirty shop will now be know as Kevins' Kloset ?
911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.

I might just be calling it Home when I have to sell my house to pay the Thursday bills.

But all kidding aside...I told my wife don't worry at least we are restoring campers so we can move into them.
