    Nice work guys.  Looks like this thing is going to fly right through the clean shop.

    ^^ Haha, yeah. It takes a year to do the body and paint resto, then three weeks to put it back together. 😀

    This bus was rusty…but it was also very complete and original. Its soul is intact, and showing more by each OG piece we put back on.

     

    I’m looking for a pair of headlight bulb holders. These ones are a little different, and only came on 54-55 north american spec buses with sealed beam headlights. Maybe some of you serious bus guy have some stashed? Or maybe your a hobbyist with a pile of random headlights/parts. Either way I’ll pay you good money for one or two in any condition.

    True about the BBOE. That thing RIPS offroad!! All KCW buses are meant to be driven! We will see how much Kevin lets this one out of the house… Id like to see it in Moab. Maybe we try to make JJ sweat a bit?  😉  😉  😆
