A few spots have rust damage, but no really big nasty surprises!John JonesKeymasterSeptember 27, 2019 at 4:29 pmPost count: 5695
did some cutting and dissecting of lips… Had to cut out an outrigger and jackpoint, which is pain in the arse with the floor in…. 😎 Probably good.. it was FULL of dirt in there between the jack point and outrigger…
anyhow.. Progress was made!!!
Hey Brent… recognize that comb?? It was in the heat tube… you must have dropped it in the dash vent as some point.. 😎YberParticipantSeptember 28, 2019 at 10:28 amPost count: 106
WOW! She logged a LOT of miles on dirt roads in Idaho’s backcountry in the 70s and 80s – looks like she took a lot with her!
Yeah – that fix on the outrigger and jack point looks like a BIG pain!
No idea on the comb. Ha! Might be a leftover from the woman I bought the bus from in 1973…YberParticipantSeptember 28, 2019 at 1:14 pmPost count: 106
Here are some pics from when we took our baby to Alaska for our honeymoon in 1975. We got married in the Cuyamaca mountains east of San Diego and drove over to the SoCal coast and spent the only night of our two month trip in a hotel – for the rest of the trip we lived in our VW baby!
We drove up the coast all the way to Vancouver and then north in B.C. to Dawson Creek – mile zero of the Alcan Highway. The Alcan wasn’t paved in 1975 – it was 1500 miles of gravel and potholes. We passed LOTS of heavier vehicles broken down along the way, but our bus just trundled on!
We covered the front with cardboard and screen over the headlights and windshields – there were LOTS of rocks being thrown around!
In the middle of the Yukon we paid a bit over $1/gal for gas – outrageous in 1975! Once we arrived in Alaska we splurged on a hamburger ($3 – also outrageous in 1975) then spent weeks driving all over – to the Arctic Circle, Denali National Park, and south along the panhandle before heading back down the Alcan into the Yukon where we cut west through the Alaska Range (fantastic!) to Haines, AK where we boarded the ferry for our return trip south. Got off in Sitka, Petersburg and finally at Prince Rupert, BC.
Then we headed home to Idaho – two months and ten thousand miles later!
Definitely a trip-of-a-lifetime in our beloved Westy!66beaterParticipantSeptember 29, 2019 at 9:53 amPost count: 64
Awesome back story! Bus is super clean considering it’s been so enjoyed. Congratulations!

More dissection today. Started with drivers inner lower b-pillar.
Small cargo floor section.
Cleaned off scraps down to base metal where JJ had already cut out the big stuff.
Pass rear outrigger and jack point were smashed up and full of dirt so they came off as well.
We will build it if it comes.YberParticipantSeptember 30, 2019 at 7:08 pmPost count: 106
Yeah – I knew the lower B pillar was hurting.
No big surprise that both rear outriggers/jack points were full of dirt and messed up – she’s logged a LOT of miles on dirt roads in Idaho.
Great news about the cargo floor – just that one little section.
BTW – really clever design on the body dolly, how the attached section allows you to get at the bottom!VwfoolParticipantSeptember 30, 2019 at 9:02 pmPost count: 249
That is an awesome story and trip. Can’t wait to see what the KCW guys do.Pat KKeymasterOctober 1, 2019 at 5:28 pmPost count: 1096
Finished dissection today. My condolences to the front outriggers and jack points, unfortunately we lost them to the battle. Top hats are good. Only small patches on the bulkhead.
D-pillar lowers and corners only gave up small sections to the rust gods.
Inner valance lost a bit of skin as well. There’s something lurking just under the surface that is about to bust through.. imagine that… Rust!!!
Flipped her back upright, moved the rollover jig to the opp side to so down is up now for a better view while blasting. Out to the blast booth for a final abrasive cleaning.
We will build it if it comes.
