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: 5604
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: 1068
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.
