Putting parts on this daily. Feeling good about assembly.

3.88 transaxle from RC trans. New t/o bearing.

Wagens West Lollipop transaxle mount. Probably the strongest of all the different types of tunnel trans conversions. Affordable too.

shit is for sure happening.....!!!!! =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> Now is not the time to start critiquing the headliner yet.. it's NOT DONE just yet... tomorrow I am hoping.. [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< Doug couldn't put the rear piece of the headliner in... they forgot to sew the cardboard in that the clips hold on to, that holds all that shit back there up.... #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o Franz and Peet are working on the windows.. They are sometimes a pain in the ass... I should say usually.. :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ Franz was explaining just how much of your sunroof mech's he had to rebuild... holy hell.... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) and hardware was nuts expensive too.. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

anyway... all is well, train is rolling forward your bus is looking awesome...


I like that contrasting safari tab!!!

It's the little details like that most people short cut. Then you see a bus roll thru Barrett Jackson for stupid money with little bolts holding the top of the vent wing pivot in place. ](*,)
