a friend if Bubba’s… and now my friend too… 😎 Another guy in Durango with an impressive bus collection!!!
Zack. we gotta get Bo in the Forums.. He was on… but on one of the security upgrades, I think he got deleted or a spam bot or somerthing.. 😎
Plan… lowered, narrowed, straight axle, WillWood brakes, repop fuch’s Touch up as little paint as possible, Replace front end and repair corners.. No blasting… No stripping… Cool Cruiser for hauling friends around Durango…. 😎volksaddictParticipantJanuary 10, 2019 at 12:01 pmPost count: 620
Gonna be nice! Glad to see this one move forward!!WrenParticipantJanuary 10, 2019 at 1:16 pmPost count: 168
Great looking bus! I was going to try and bring my bus down in a couple of weeks to try and raise it back to stock. I’d trade the straight axle or narrowed beam if that would help either party? My brother in law was just telling me that Durango is filled with split buses! Awesome!Pat KKeymasterJanuary 10, 2019 at 1:42 pmPost count: 1412
Anybody know what is says in the sunglasses?? Found a few pics online but was not able to tell. Bad ass art!!!
Inner valance burned in. Drivers a-pillar bottom/valance tie-in is ready to burn in.
Noticed a front bumper mount nut missing. Good to go now.
We will build it if it comes.PeteParticipantJanuary 10, 2019 at 2:34 pmPost count: 907Baja MarkParticipantJanuary 10, 2019 at 3:16 pmPost count: 449
Rad bus for sure. Nice to see a lowered bus coming out of KCW again 😃mtnbusParticipantJanuary 10, 2019 at 3:54 pmPost count: 1149
So cool !!
you guys get it done ! Bo is pumped !!John JonesKeymasterJanuary 10, 2019 at 9:46 pmPost count: 6700
I figured Bo would be stoked we got him in so quick.!!!!! We gotta get him back on the forums.. Maybe he can just sign up again?? Or if he emails me the old screen name….. Maybe Zack can get him going again??
I imagine Pat will knock this metal work out in short order… Then well work on the stance! Bo… I think you should get a rebuilt center section unless you don’t mind playing the tranny lottery…. You mentioned you had a line on a 68 trans… That would work fine.. I still want to put the conversion axle tubes on, but the 68 axles will work great.. and if it were me.. I would just stick wth the drums in the rear, we can buy re-drilled late drums that are Porsche pattern, the 68 brakes will work perfect.. Hell, we could probably just re-drill the OG drums.. that would be even better… stronger castings. Up front… I think a 2.5 ” beam with flipped spindles and Russell’s willwood brake kit… perfecto! 4.5’s up front, 5.5’s in the rear… or 5.5’s all around.. 😎 2332 tractor motor… I know you guys have hills… There’s a good one leaving durango a long steep one…. You’ll love being able to power up that in 4th gear… a straight axle bus drives nice, much more aggressive in comparison to stock…Pat KKeymasterJanuary 11, 2019 at 6:11 amPost count: 1412
Morning. Finished inner valance yesterday. Fit the outer. Bit of weld prep this morning, ready to burn in now.
We will build it if it comes.ryans65ParticipantJanuary 11, 2019 at 8:10 amPost count: 100

Baja Mike is going to be pissed when he sees another project got in front of his. 😆Pat KKeymasterJanuary 11, 2019 at 2:41 pmPost count: 1412
I usually put the nose on first, decided to do the floor, then headlight bucket support, then nose. Seems to be a bit easier this way. Front floor burned in.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterJanuary 13, 2019 at 7:59 amPost count: 6700
Killing it… 😎 BTW… Bo wants leaking front windows… Hey Bo… Call wolfgang, and order a set and ship them here… 😎volksaddictParticipantJanuary 13, 2019 at 8:33 amPost count: 620
Leaking windows… hahaha, so true.BodgocoParticipantJanuary 13, 2019 at 5:02 pmPost count: 62
Stoked to have this bus at KCW! Thanks for getting it in so quick. Little history on it. I bought it from the people who own Animas trading company in Durango. They bought it for their honeymoon in 1985. They toured all over with the dead until Jerry died in 1995. Then they put it away. It was in Teluride when the dead played there in 1987. They’re license plate is famous in some circles. It’s on a poster.John JonesKeymasterJanuary 13, 2019 at 5:52 pmPost count: 6700
right on BO!!!!! 😎 I have this feeling, you and I were supposed to meet… we are gonna have some fun…. 😎 😎volksaddictParticipantJanuary 14, 2019 at 7:29 amPost count: 620
Ya know Bo, a couple logos on that bus and it would be a tax writeoff, just sayin…
