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.John JonesKeymasterNovember 6, 2019 at 7:55 amPost count: 6339
I’ve never tried em. but I am sure they are fine……
if my shit sags… I just adjust her up another notch…. 😎 21-22 degree’s out back seems about right… 😎 Mine is at 24 for heavy loaded situations.. 😎
Pat was here crazy early working on the roof… Body work has started…. I ordered a bunch of materials. yesterday… some filler and primer and paper to sand it with!!! 😎Pat KKeymasterNovember 6, 2019 at 2:43 pmPost count: 1271
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.John JonesKeymasterNovember 7, 2019 at 6:45 amPost count: 6339

What kind of beer do you guys like?
I think they are all raspberry White Claw kind of guys.
HAHAHAAHA.. Lately we have been into the “High octane” beers… IPA’s usually… atleast 6.5% or more alcohol content.. VooDoo rangers imperial’s… They are like 9% 😎 We can drink three and be fucked up.. compared to like 10 coors lights….. 😎
Your bus looks sooooooo damn nice…. 😎 Parts start on monday!John JonesKeymasterNovember 9, 2019 at 9:26 amPost count: 6339
Brent… I was thinking this morning.. You have owned this bus for like 46 years!!!!!! Who has been around longer, the bus, or the wife??? 😎 😎YberParticipantNovember 9, 2019 at 3:21 pmPost count: 154
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!!!!YberParticipantNovember 9, 2019 at 3:29 pmPost count: 154
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?John JonesKeymasterNovember 11, 2019 at 8:34 amPost count: 6339

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