Josh's #2 Mango

Postby hitlersride » Thu Nov 28, 2013 7:53 pm

Picked up a new ride for this spring. Super excited to have the ability to purchase the exact vehicle that brought me into the VW scene.
Its still very new to me so Im sure the KCW community will be great help with my bus.

Why buy when you can build?
I've spent hours on parts that you can buy for pennies.

Is this the bus that was built at concept1? Always enjoyed that one myself, does it still have the Ida engine?

Does a bay window (a '68 to be precise) have different back spacing to a split bus?
