    Well Buddy’s new patina bus showed up this weekend, a Velvet Green 66 13 window he got out of Kansas. Paint has been cooked to perfection.

    D3A1BA0E-13DD-490B-B6FB-9F7A112850FD2F06CD5C-BB27-4542-8AAF-8E2495FFD53868EF3CC1-3682-49BD-BB93-E05F978EDDD25AA4EA58-922E-4B8C-9D71-E75B561DEADD
    0D4BED07-7E40-4C0B-8B86-4F2B1B5C16747945B523-AE01-4054-AD2E-E548C5A0781544CA416E-C8DE-4211-84E9-B6A836E10D37913E2D1D-C193-4130-8879-74F0FAAE235E

    So far it sounds like the plan is all new detailed mechanicals, lowered on RDWs, painted bottom and engine bay, and a fresh OG style interior.

    Pat and Franz haven’t wasted any time getting it up on the lift and mechanicals torn out of it.

    It’s going to need some metal. I think the plan is to repair and blend.

    Haven’t heard from Buddy in awhile. This is going to be cool, old school, lowered. Looking forward to it.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    This bus is sexy! Blend sounds way better than full bottom paint.

    Can’t wait to see you guys work your magic

    Also, it has the early style Gibbs side step. I’ve been looking for one of those….

    We took all the mechanicals out, scraped grease/ dirt.

    I could not resist doing some metal work on the crunched corner. Pushed out with a portapower and hammer worked.

    super dirty full of mouse shit
