All good JJ, I’ve always laughed at the shit you guys give me.
Im ready to see and hear the subi plans!! What motor? Defiantly use a 1700 pressure plate. Diesel starter swap? Wrx thermostat housing? Universal heater core? Lots and lots of good options. Clean pat what’s up Bro!!John JonesModeratorJuly 24, 2018 at 7:15 amPost count: 10420

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!
Pat K also cut my floor for me!!! And we picked a nice bright cedar color to stain it! Thanks Pat!!!
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!!
I am so stoked on how its turning out and I can’t wait to be camping in this thing!!
Huge thanks to everyone at the shop and the KCW community for helping us with this project!! And Andy- Thanks for bringing out my cabinets and coming out to build my motor!!ColeBModeratorSeptember 3, 2018 at 11:31 amPost count: 2612

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.FranzModeratorSeptember 4, 2018 at 7:06 amPost count: 5112
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.AndymParticipantSeptember 4, 2018 at 7:25 amPost count: 979

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.Pat KModeratorSeptember 12, 2018 at 6:35 amPost count: 2749
