    Thanks Bubba, I can’t wait to be camping in it!!!

    Another great weekend working on the Vanagon!! Corporate and I got a lot done!

    We discovered Vinyl Paint and decided that would be the easiest/cheapest/quickest option to give the headliner a little facelift! The white headliner already looked pretty good, just looked dirty after ripping the AC out… The caramel color turned out awesome and warms it up in there a lot!

    We also found this awesome turquoise fabric laying around for all the seats and the pad in the back!!

    After painting the ceiling and recovering the back panels with some rust colored burlap, we put all the cabinets we have in and we have a pretty awesome mock-up of it!!

    Not a problem Audrey your parents have hooked it up a everytime ive been there.

    Glad to see the interior parts in it, I had no clue what any of that was.  Camping is for hippies! 😎

    is this van a driver if it had a motor? Or does it need other shit? I’d like to do some driving.

    Hell yeah. Nice work Audrey.

    I’m glad Andy is going to handle the Subaru junk. I was not excited about that.

    I think its a driver other than the engine.

    Clean shop Peet is gone again? Bummer.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Can someone at KCW post a picture of the engine.. how complete? Does it still have the wiring plugs? Known runner?

    I’d recommend headgaskets, I do them on all my swaps. And can do em for ya.

    Man this is gonna be fun, reminds me of when I went to Bens place for his subi swap. Just trying to double check everything before I book a flight.
