    That thing is going to be quiet. It’ll sound like a new Kia Sedona inside!

    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.

    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. 🙂

    Didn’t hear back from Bodgoco, but did hear back from west coast wipers finally. WCW is sending a restored unit out asap.

    Bodoco, appreciate the offer! Looks like we got it handled.
