    What do you guys know about the rear torsion bars sold by Wolfsburg West?

    I’ve been thinking it might be good for an old Westy – nobody likes saggy.

    This bus is super straight!

    I’ve already body-worked the roof where necessary, a hand full of areas, roof is ready for a primer session.

    JJ just about has the nose and dog legs body-worked.

    I moved onto pass rear quarter/corner which I will have damn near done today.

    We’re thinking we should be ready for first primer session on Friday.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Ha!  Lori and I met in fourth grade(!)  But she didn’t have anything to do with me – she thought I was a “bad boy”.  Later she decided she liked it (ha!) – we started dating at 16 in 1969, after ending up as lab partners in her Uncle Charlie’s chemistry class.

    I bought the bus in 1973 – we got married and bus camped to Alaska for our honeymoon in 1975.

    And yes, the bus (our baby) looks soooooooo damn nice!!!!

    Whoa!  You dudes are badass!

    We used to swill Colt 45 in high school – and got absolutely hammered, and fast!  And it’s only about 6.5%

    These days I’ve been into various home-brew recipes for brown ales.  Also love me some Guinness.  As the brewery says: “Guinness is good for you!”

    How about you, Pat?

    6.5 does the trick still!!!!!   And Pat’s response is usually, “Cold and Open!”  😎

    Pat was here early again!! and has both front doors roughed in…. 😎  He’s blocking them out now… Said he had o do a bit of shrinking to one of them this morning.. anyway…. I think we might have the removables done today!!!!!    I was thinking a few days… maybe be blocking on the shel by friday… HA!!  I think we will be blocking on the shell tomorrow!!!  😎  😎   Awesome blossom!!!

    I bet we have you painted and ready to go home before Thanksgiving!!!!  😎
