Another great trip up to KCW ! I showed up later on Sunday evening and Pat had all my new parts spread out on the work bench! We discussed our game plan over a few Modelos. We were up early on Monday and while Pat ripped into the front end, I pulled the motor and the old tranny. Pat had the old parts off the bus and the new bushings and trailing arms all hooked up quick ! He says that job is getting easier for him.
He instructed me on a few things with the new trans and before long we were both done! I have a tight front end and a solid transmission that doesn't grind going in to 3rd! A big thanks to the whole crew ! Always a good time and always getting shit done ! Special thanks to dirty shop Pat for a few parts he helped me with !
Hope to see you guys soon.

Pretty cool thing happened to me last night.

My dad likes to watch different kinds of videos on Youtube in his free time (documentaries, travel blogs, etc) and he came across this set of videos of this dude hitch hiking across the US.

He came across an episode when the guy was in Colorado and ended up hanging out with a bunch of VW bus guys who were going on a trip. So naturally my dad sends me the video and was like, you know any of these bus guys? Saw the blue split with the bay window top and was like....yup! He frequents the KCW site.

Small world.

Theres a chance that the video has already been posted in this thread, the video was not new, but new to me. If you guys haven't seen it, I can find the link and post it.
