    Dormie tops are ~ vert beetle tops…😠🤭🤫

    Fit, drilled, cut, welded by Franz, shaped, straightened, dressed, sanded, polished and fiddled with OG canvas hold down strips all day.

    Tomorrow should be rewarding…😁😎😁01C25A04-52C8-4BF4-A6CF-D1BC6C0C8A09666D1C4D-DADC-4A27-8492-BB74DC60F18C05632FBA-38FC-4E6A-AC6A-C408576CA7AC8F627D9A-9766-4539-A4D9-3755298EC59C1DA58513-DEF4-452E-B520-73A5F84AD22B0306BD95-12EA-4878-B22D-7E3FAA2639AEF1702897-ECA0-4D39-8C18-2DE3A8765DF98BB2AA55-64D4-4CA5-B862-3D63D8D7030F

    I just looked back through emails… I bought this bus the first time in the summer of 2009. I didn’t get to use the top back then because the canvas was trashed. It’s pretty damn exciting to see it this close to being an actual functioning dormobile again.

    The manual says leave an 1″ of slack on the long end to accommodate shrink. Having built one, and spoken with a couple more people that have installed the roof tents on these, I believe that is overkill and leaves the tent looking wrinkly and poorly fit. If doing it again, I wouldn’t leave more than 1/2″.

    This is an amazing bus.  Top looks awesome. Straight up KCW work. I’ve got the wiper in Durango if the KCW fam needs it I’ll pull it.

    Only reason I have the nose is because of Bubba! He beat me out of a 15 for a rickenbacker guitar.

    i’m not having any luck getting a restored one. If you’ve got a good 12v one and it’s not samba priced, pull it and send it ASAP. The help is greatly appreciated! Damn wiper assembly is holding up the show. 🙂

    Continued sticking in the Retro Sound today. Got the rear quarters and driver’s door fully covered. About 3/4 done with the passenger side door!
