    Brent.. Had a good day yesterday…. Got that inner B pillar installed, and covered up the whole back up on the rocker!!  Then moved to the drivers rear corner… Got the tray in, mud flap, closing panel and little wall piece pat made put back in..  The shell is ready to get dusted off!!!

    Pat is repairing the other cargo door piece now… fit that door, and dust it off!!!  Then…   The ball sucking arm wrenching shoulder burning task of doing body work…. 😎

    Well, I was going to say  – hooray the metal work is done.  But it sounds like the body work is no picnic…

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

    http://www.wolfsburgwest.com/cart/DetailsList.cfm?ID=211511113

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

    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!!!  😎

    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.
