    YEAH!  Great bus trips – there’s nothing like ’em.

    As soon as you get behind the wheel – instant GOOD mood!

    WOW – the Salton Sea area has changed BIG time since the 60s & 70s!

    The California and Oregon coasts are PRIME bus tripping!

    Started on driver side batt tray repairs this morning.  Too many pinholes and a 4 inch long rusty gap at the return seam. So out it came, along with the rear fender closing panel.

    Welded and dressed a couple small holes in the pass side batt tray.FCC07EEF-8644-4901-A9F4-0D5A9CCE4A3B

    Back on her feet ready for topside repairs.

    Looking GOOD!!!  Not much metal work left!!!

    Is there a “reinforcing plate” that goes over the notches in the cargo floor where the cargo door latch shafts go in?

    Huh?  That’s weird!

    I had to replace the rear window in about 1976 when some asshole through a rock through it.

    I know there were some chips in the paint around the latch button from keys, but I never noticed ANY dents in it!

    Oh yeah… Oh yeah…. She’s gonna be nice…. 😎  I won’t leave a spot untouched…. 😎

    I don’t think you could get a beige grey and sealing wax red bus in 66 unless it came from westy?????  The deluxe’s were titan red I think…. ???

    Pats getting everything ready for the last abrasive cleaning session… 😎

    Yep – beige grey and sealing wax red was a 1964 color combo, not available in 1966 – except maybe on Westys.  Maybe another piece of evidence for the 64 vs 66 sleight of hand by VW for this 66 bus – with OG safari windows
