Hahaha we will see about that! I don't have 7-7-800$ for mint new safaris. The object of this bus is to see how bad ass I can make it for as little money as possible :-" the bus itself and 90% of the missing parts I've aquired for it have been trades so far \:D/ just means more labour....something I'm not scared to invest. Wink
That pic of the super crusty Safari was a bit of a joke.....that bottom is trash....I got 3 full frames, one almost useable the way it is, the others have rotten bottoms. Plan is to use the top of the 3rd frame to graft in for the straights and then somehow fab new corners :-k gonna be a challenge but I'm down =D>

I bought 2 long spoon latches yesterday because I realized I had money in my paypal #-o.....man I really wanna buy a floor and nose repair stuff and make this a roller soon ](*,)

My pass side door has finally landed! This was the original door to the bus that JP had stashed away after they pulled a bullet 15 window out of the same property up in the interior of bc. My buss was picked of its parts and left to rust :-({|= pretty cool to reunite the thing.....perfect patina match Wink love the art....horny rad door :-&

Image


It's a super straight door, hinges got cut off but they aren't all bent up. Gonna need some love in the inner at bottom....damn hippies stuffed house insulation in every void of the bus [-X

Picked up a pie of long spoons recently and finally found some M3.5 screws for the popout frames so had to test fit!

I need some input from bus owners.....this kombi only came with the standard 2 popouts, should a guy go all out and do 6? (Creig says fuck ya...) I don't think I've rode in a bus with full big spoon action....with safaris sounds kinda like a cyclone to me??? But what does this bus virgin know?

That looks really fuckin sweet!

I think the best part about 6 pop outs is it's easy for the driver/passenger to reach back and open the front two while driving. Not so easy to reach the back two! The front two also open forward so they scoop a LOT of air into the bus. Either way it's cool, your call.

I've never converted a 2 pop out bus to a 6 pop out (all the busses we've had have already had 6), do they already have nut plates in place? Screw them in and go?

No nut plates...but no you gotta weld hinges on anywho :-" I guess if I do the 6 with forward 2 scoopin air it will prevent me from cheezing out and running a 1600.....need a 2L just to overcome the drag off those mofos! :-# I happen to have a line on 4 more long spoons Wink

Common homeboy I ran 6 longs in the forest service bus, so badass with all that air coming in, susposed to have shorts on the doors though so they can open up??

This bus makes me jealous the more complete it gets, this was a great find for us, the start of tripple js haha

Late model busses have all of those stupid pop-outs.

Embrace the 2 pop-outs only. I would not add extra pop-outs. Creig doesn't know what hes talking about. Smile Thats early shit son!

Has JP had his hands on every bus in Canada? WTF?! Like an opposite Johnny Appleseed. Roaming the land and taking parts from all the VW's.

Glad to see progress on this....

For some reason I see this bus all slammed out, patina monster.. Some sort of sick wheels, stock bumpers etc... Probably a tractor style motor if the funds are there... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

But... All jacked up and some big tires would be usefull as all hell and I assure you, more fun overall.... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> But maybe not as "cool"

who is creig? :-# :-# :-#
if you keep going in circles.. Your never gonna get anywhere :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k
