Nice work guys. Looks like this thing is going to fly right through the clean shop.FranzParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 8:35 amPost count: 5403
^^ 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.John JonesModeratorAugust 30, 2017 at 7:01 pmPost count: 13382
assembly is going on… beam mock up for new horizontal bars.. notice all the original to the bus hardware all cleaned up and zinc plated

Super fast! Im excited to see this bus tearing up the trails in Moab this winter 😉 😉 😆RustabusParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 9:56 pmPost count: 3205
Huh????? BBOE kills it camping and road tripping!! Think this rig should only be driven a half dozen times a year to show off!!!! Maybe one Moab trip???ColeBModeratorAugust 30, 2017 at 11:33 pmPost count: 2632
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? 😉 😉 😆Matt FaulknerParticipantAugust 31, 2017 at 7:33 amPost count: 56
Man it’s nuts how far this thing has come! Not far from being done now! Great job y’all.John JonesModeratorAugust 31, 2017 at 8:10 amPost count: 13382
I love to drive busses… and I LOVE DRIVER busses… But I have spent soooo much time rebuilding this bus… I’d like to see it stay that way, and be more of an Icon to be enjoyed by many of where Volkswagen Camping all started… 🙂 🙂 🙂
