Nice! That was quick.

My dad had a dodge tradesman he did up in the 70s. All mocked up and just before sending to paint it caught fire. Not even that much, but a lot of the interior. He redid and finished it anyway. We owned for a couple of years. The smell was always there.
...but that's just me.

I've had to gut the bus and scrub everything by hand to get the soot out. Going to try easy off now. Regardless I will have to paint the inside of the bus.FML! #-o ](*,) ](*,)

Pulled the rear valance that was all smashed to hell. Glad I did, found more rust and burnt metal.
I finally got the bus gutted and pressure washed! Tomorrow I start sanding and priming.

Not as bad as it could have been. I hope the body guy can work it out. ](*,)

Nice job getting after it, Rene. You'll have it sorted in no time.

How's your red Beetle doing? Any updates on it?
Meh.

Thanks, the red bug is doing great. Won't second place at the dubz at the depot show two weeks ago.

Scored a HD empi rear anti sway bar from the local pick and pull that I found on a 77 deluxe they had there.

Late bays have rear sway bars, or is that an aftermarket upgrade thing?
...but that's just me.
