    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.IMG_3438IMG_3443IMG_3444

    Glad to see Bo has joined us. Sorry I didn’t introduce myself when u came by, I was all up in Mikes DC.

    Thats some pretty cool history on this bus. I feel like the more you know where your VW came from the more you care about it.

    Headlight bucket support and nose work is on today’s list.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Jumped on this early today. Nose dissected.  Sanded and then sprayed a little epoxy on the backside of headlight bucket support and valance as well as the nose. E10FD41C-66B9-4762-9E83-07175423899F08267EC6-83FA-4699-AA07-296381A3EEF4

    Awesome! It hasn’t had a nose  on it in 10 years! I bought the replacement for the headlight support because no one reproduced it back then. All OG German!!!

    Got the front end fit and burned in yesterday. Came out great!!  Time to dress up all the welds and make it pretty.

    How much of this sweet patina are we keeping on the nose? Do you want it two toned like stock?imageimage

    We will build it if it comes.
