    So true Glenn, made me think of lots of great childhood memories! Super cool that this time it is on my bus!! I’m still a little bit in disbelief… I can’t believe it’s really mine!!! ??

    Sounds like the subi motor will take me anywhere I need to go! That will be nice for me… I have some learning to do before I can be a roadside mechanic! ?

    Super fun weekend!!!  We seem to all work well together!  Audrey’s right, can’t wait to turn this blank slate into a unique camper!!!  We have great, hard working kids who spent most of their childhood in or around VW’s.  I am so glad it must have been positive overall, since they both want to drive VWs now!!!!  I loved having something we could all work on together!

    Thanks to Bubba too!!!!!!

    I love going on adventures in our bus!!!

    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.
