    Haha well I think all these buses are eventually Abby’s, however this one will be heading to South America for duty as a beach rig with Chas. That clear Rustoleum sure didn’t do that poor thing any favors…

    A fresh coat of paint is going to do wonders for this rig…

    it also has no brakes☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️😒. Interior could use some love but pretty nice!!

    I think  Audrey and I will start sanding on the roof tomorrow,  wire wheel the crap out of the rain gutters and maybe prime it🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

    Will sucks. He ditched out helping on Cole’s project too. Does that mean he should work twice as hard on this one? Yes.

    I dunno if I feel like waiting around for his help🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄. I wanna get another project done 😁😁😁😁😁😁.

    Are you ram-rodding this build Audrey ?

    haha yes I suppose I am! Part of the deal we made for Greta was painting Arby for Chas… so now that JJ is pretty much all recovered from surgery – it’s go time!! 😎

    More double teaming for Arby today!

    John is working on the roof and I’m repairing a previous rust fix.

    Wow!  That’s awesome all the interior pieces are still there. Always thought the Caravelle was the coolest of the Cali conversions. Does it have a tent? It looks like the mounts are on the roof.

    We decided to POR15 the rain gutter to help seal down what little bits of rust are left in the rain gutter…  Body work is done, well scuff and prime soon..

    Got the nose stripped and gonna do some metal work soon..
