    John, I found keys that “Might” fit that steering lock.

    I am sending those and the top window rubber install tool out today.

    JJ finished up safari assy/install yesterday. He was able to get the seals in without relocating the slider tabs.B0160A89-F67C-47E3-BFD7-70B558A2E550C484A02C-38CB-4FCA-81D7-A9746AD5E468

    Curtain tracks glued and clamp yesterday. Riley got the inside of the pop top painted as well.C09B0BAC-B42D-4F55-93DD-224360E771CA3A6BB8EF-A5CF-45A9-880E-84484F391C89

    Replaced all will be worn out pop rivets in the pop top pop out window mechs. Also sealedamd painted all of the pop top bits. 5D678456-2E1E-4337-88B8-5EFD6384F1BA7BA3D954-7F1B-4569-B8CC-FF940255BA37

    Yesterday I cleaned up a bunch of aluminum trim with some Simple Green. Painted the inside of the pop top also.

    Hells yeah Lava was a blast this year!!!

    Assembled pop out mechs for the pop top.EDBCDEFE-7181-460E-84BF-E7818B9FB452

    Working through the first vent fit on the top. 2C9988C2-FA9E-4EA5-AB05-C93874480101C4A71374-4473-48BA-BD5B-DF000F7A5024

    Everything that pop rivets or bolts to the top will get a little bit of Moretite to seal it up. 0A3DD821-F993-411A-92CD-D85E037EDE0B3FD89634-9381-4B9E-993A-CBD377BAB7C5

    Transaxle is scraped clean and ready to send to Painter’s for rebuild. 3.88 x .082 ?

    And what Chevy pats do I need to buy for the front brakes? We’re working on a zinc plating parts lot. It would be good to get rotors, mechs and by hardware done.

    I’ll get the front brake kit coming.

    WOOHOO!!! Shit is happening!!!!    I thought I should give them tabs a chance to work… I pried them out a tad and got the seal acceptable and sealing!  and didn’t burn any time going backwards!  Forward is the direction of the momentum around here.. 😎

    The back side of the top looks awesome!! It all looks great!  and Pat is handling that resto like a pro!   He has lots of patience for stuff like that!!!!

    I would work on your project today.. but, I don’t feel like I can get anything done done..  I need an ignition(key), I don’t want to even mount the ignition till I have a key for it, and the steering box needs to come out.. and a wiper assy to finish wiring, Sure I could do a few things,, but.. I would rather wait till I have everything for wiring  Side window frames are missing some seals…  I could probably round some up… But I think Franz has a list of stuff he is going to order..  And the mech’s I think are gonna go out for zinc.  I could just wire wheel em and clear em with some shake and shoot.?  But the zinc makes it look like new… 😎  I’d rather work on it all day than just an hour here and there… anyway..  Thinking out loud here,,, 😎  When we have all the rivets and seals and shit for side windows, and mech’s back from zinc, I will have a door day!!!  😎

    Going to be such an cool camper to see out and about…   We will continue to kick ass daily!!!!  😎

    The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎

    Sooo glad we didn’t have to cut the tabs out.

    That tool for the top window rubber and the keys that might fit the column lock went out UPS Monday. I bet you see them today or tomorrow. Found those keys in my old key pile and they don’t fit my deluxe so there’s a good chance they are spares from the first time I owned the bus. **fingers crossed**

    Great to see this thing coming along!

    Hey John… remember when I used to tell you you needed a lift in your shop? You would always tell me you didn’t need one. Then one day you finally broke down and got one… now you have what 3?

    Well… John, you need a Hot Pressure Washer for your shop. It’ll cut your cleaning time in half or better and the parts will be a lot nicer to work with because it will clean much more thoroughly (nooks and crannies). All the dirt, grease and oil residue will come off without having to use heavy chemicals or scrape parts. Not to mention how quick and easy it’ll make cleaning up your rail and your racecar. Cold water just blows dirt around, hot water actually cleans.

    You don’t have to get one from me, you won’t hurt my feelings. I’m sure there’s a local equipment dealer there in Junktown that can hook you up if you prefer. But take it from a guy who knows, you need one. It’s just like a lift, you can suffer through without one but you’ll kick yourself for waiting so long once you finally get one.

    … Scooby thinks you should get one too… just sayin’. 🙂

    Lots of squish seals it up good!B07B42B1-74F4-48D7-8BA8-AE9EA0317CE7

    These vents are tedious and detail oriented. They require full mock up before anything goes together for good. One down one to go.4FCDFDB8-FC5E-42CE-970E-B1A3FDFAC1408F992BD3-8A5D-4D87-9997-0A4CA4AC5AA35F2288FC-405A-48D0-9A02-22203DEE8AE7AB7175E1-CB35-40AC-9907-1EF803DD3B781A395CC4-0CBC-40DE-A2A1-63A9CF58C9B9519C9CD6-B21A-437C-AF9D-185E468F8AB14133C716-B572-49E4-B14F-D8D96CF12A1F
