Might as well post up a few pics because I’ve been dinking around with this thing lately. I’ve had this bus a really long time, pretty sure it is one of the earlier Sportsmobile’s out there. When I first found it I bought a bunch of parts off of it with the owners permission. Good thing because 20 years later I have the Bus and a bunch of the OG shit! I’ve been slowly stacking up parts and cleaning up stuff for this Bus, kinda feel like I’m making some progress!!!!mtnbusParticipantJune 14, 2022 at 12:58 pmPost count: 1839

That has the same camper interior as I had at one time. My friend Triston is rocking it now.
Rusty, I’ll give you five grand, my two dirt bikes, a six pack of beer, and a bag of peanuts for it. 🙂

Dug out a bunch of crusty ass old seals and sanded off a bunch of Bondo spread over OG paint…. Pretty sure this is how it was done back in the day! 🤔🤔🤣 Body isn’t really that rusted, inner/outer rockers on both sides, a jackpoint and passenger front floor for sure!John JonesModeratorJune 16, 2022 at 7:44 amPost count: 10806

Still slowly plugging away! Found OG late rear hatch glass in my stash! Gonna clean the shit outta it cuz it’s crusty and load up the seal. Sorted through my front glass. Nothin appropriate or really nice, gonna cut a couple new ones at my local glass shop. Since I’m not messing with the whole body For this build, I figure I can install all the glass and make a big step in closing up the Bus! 👍👍👍RustabusParticipantJune 26, 2022 at 1:41 pmPost count: 2791
Also rummaged around for this, since I’m running sissy motor stuff , why not!
