No the damn government constantly has its hands in your pockets, so its almost impossible to get any spare cash to spend on a project. Throw in some kids, and helping out buddies once in a while...

They're a little less intrusive in the U.S. cash just seems to go a bit further...too many damn taxes here.

So you constantly grind to get extra money, then you're too tired from the extra work to work on your projects...haha ](*,)

All i know is i'm working extra and buying small parts here and there, then i'm going to go into attack mode, but no updates till I do.

I'm not sure it's much different everywhere else -for the average working person- unless your job IS working on cars and you can dedicate some of your time at work to work on your car.
Your hobby (especially an expensive one) is always at the bottom of your priority list, no matter how hard you try to bump it up.
And in a hobby that takes A LOT of money, A LOT of time (not to mention a lot of space), it's very difficult to achieve all at the same time, for the average working/family dude, without a lot of sacrifice and compromise of all of the above, anywhere...... But it's how it goes



In any case........ I'm dying to see this bus take (more) shape!!

Yep, no relief in sight for the average working dude. Oh well...eventually. I'm making progress at least...the motor is out and my rims are here. I'm already looking alot better than I did last year at this time...lol.

Nope, it wasn't there.

I know he is getting close- he broke the carb linkage on Thursday I think and called me looking for one. I have Dellorto arms but no Webers.

It's been awhile. Sorry guys. Life is getting in the way right now. I am doing little bits when I can. I am in the middle of a basement reno now and had to move all my parts in the garage. So I decided to put my bumpers on to see what the bus would look like. Here are some pics.
