Cleaned the chalkboard, painted it with grey poly, blocked that and shot the carcass in epoxy.
Hung and adjusted the doors and blew on some L31
Cleaned, etched, and epoxied my axles, and shot on some Rustoleum black. I was busy last week!John JonesKeymasterOctober 23, 2018 at 7:02 amPost count: 5910

I got my door hoops ready for reassembly and then realized I have no slider or fixed panes 🙁 The glass that was on this bus – it was hazed real bad, etched. I don’t know wtf happened to it… I picture the bus body sitting in some yard next to a refinery or chemical plant. Tried to clean it, you can feel the hazing etched into the surface. I got rid of 1 side on the green westy (sorry new owner!) thought I had a good set stashed but I guess not.
Where do you guys get new? Orig style with the hole for the latch. Does laminated even fit in the felt seals?VwfoolParticipantOctober 30, 2018 at 7:49 amPost count: 260John JonesKeymasterOctober 30, 2018 at 8:22 amPost count: 5910

we get em cut and tempered for big money busses.. and then logo appropriately. I would imagine, you would be cool with anything OG…. In which…. I probably can help you out if you don’t have any extra. Sounds you want both sides, minus vents? 4 pieces? I can ship it with the glove box door.. OH… I threw that box away… so get bubba to email your address please. 😎volksaddictParticipantOctober 30, 2018 at 8:43 amPost count: 531
I could sure use the 4 pieces, 2 slider 2 fixed! I’d be happy with anything og that you can see thru, Thanks!! That’s awesome John. I owe you for sure!
I saw the eis ones, would go that way if I had to, stock with scratches is better 🙂
I am surprised you are running a split case trans in this
A small nut would be nice but I have the split case, it’s orig to the bus and works fine. They seem to do well with a single port 1600 or smaller motor, and there are no freeways in my ‘hood, don’t need to get much over 60mph. Not sure what I’ll do for a motor yet, I have most of the stuff for a 40hp sitting here…
I like the old 40 hp motors.mtnbusParticipantOctober 30, 2018 at 5:42 pmPost count: 914
