Looks like I will schedule a delivery to KCW from Alberta. Might sit there a bit. I like the 2 day blitzkrieg party….ummm…I mean work session.
I gotta buy:
engine, tranny, repop fuchs, tires, beam, spindles, brake kit, middle seat, rear bumper, wire harness………damnnnn…..
yeh, franz….save that beam.
Let’s get Dario to help…….he’s funny.WrenParticipantMay 29, 2019 at 10:05 amPost count: 134
Awesome Bus! Will look great lowered!FranzKeymasterMay 29, 2019 at 11:33 amPost count: 2564
Hell yeah, sounds fun!
Lets do redrilled drum brakes on the rear and 5.5″ wheels all around. You know we get the deal on wheels from Empi.
Wagens west fromt early disc brake kit look nice. Sacos are decent, Oldspeed?dirtylawnchairParticipantMay 29, 2019 at 11:43 amPost count: 45Douglas E FreshParticipantMay 31, 2019 at 7:03 amPost count: 107
“and scratch the safari windows..all they do is leak and look cheesy.[/quote]”
you’re killing me!
they leak-So? this bus may see rain maybe twice more in its lifetime so leaking is somewhat of a moot point. and even if it did see rain I would probably still say say so??
Cheesiness is subjective I guess, but I think they look cool on a lowered bus.jpParticipantMay 31, 2019 at 1:46 pmPost count: 162
Excited to see it hit the next level! Especially in all the areas I’m lacking in, you guys have the expertise in.WrenParticipantJune 3, 2019 at 12:47 pmPost count: 134

Whats the deal with all the safari haters? You guys sound like a bunch of bay window guys. Half the reason you buy a split is to have safari windows. Safaris are the fucking shit!FranzKeymasterJune 3, 2019 at 11:15 pmPost count: 2564
Haha got you guys.
…Lowered buses are dumb too.🤪JbParticipantJune 4, 2019 at 8:37 amPost count: 460
Hey Tom, I have a rat bagged set of OG safaris for sale that I bet Franz would be dying to spend 40 hrs repairing 🤣unkParticipantJune 4, 2019 at 12:18 pmPost count: 335
Ok. international shipping sucks. Anyway….here is my thought. JP will haul the bus as far south as Grand Forks, MT. I am arranging a international logistics broker (Deringer) to get the paperwork filed and the car across the border. NOW…….I need to find a safe place to park the bus until I can hire another shipper to get the bus to Grand Junction. Anyone out there in KCW land live near Grand Forks, MT? I would need to park my bus there for a bit to a shipper can come haul it away.
Hey, JP……does that sound like a reasonable approach?maukarParticipantJune 5, 2019 at 4:57 amPost count: 41
Do you mean Great Forks, South Dakota or Great Falls, Montana?jpParticipantJune 5, 2019 at 2:19 pmPost count: 162
Might just tow it to KCW. You guys got anything for sale on the trip back? I bought a DC from JJ back in the day…FranzKeymasterJune 5, 2019 at 3:10 pmPost count: 2564
Yeah, I have a few projects I’d like to loose. I bet we could stack your trailer full. 🙂
