That Rig is AWESOME!!! Can’t wait to see it rolling around town!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂volksaddictParticipantNovember 4, 2018 at 6:18 amPost count: 595
Putting my undercarriage back together, yea. Always nice when it’s not scattered all over the shop! replaced my front torsion bar, that’s why it had coilovers on the front. Only had a later style, non welded leaf set to put in, Bently says not to replace welded torsions with non welded, guess I’ll find out if they wander out of the hole…volksaddictParticipantNovember 4, 2018 at 6:21 amPost count: 595

Hanging parts and detailing stuff, pulled my new wiring harness in, not without some drama, splice broke and I had to go fishing 🙁 put it behind me tho.
Original door handles on the driver’s side have big pavement grinds, hahah

That’s an awesome photo of the shop ! You gotta be the luckiest guy ever to have landed that DC back. So cool!volksaddictParticipantNovember 14, 2018 at 7:46 amPost count: 595
I’m only half as lucky as the guy that doubled his money on one 60 mango 🙂volksaddictParticipantNovember 16, 2018 at 8:11 amPost count: 595
Hanging parts… brake lines all in, cables, waiting on wheel cylinders to button up the brakes. Cleaned and painted the screw terminal starter. All cabin windows in place now too.
This 36 was in this bus before, came from a old ghia some years back, was kinda stuck and had signs of water down the carb but I got it started and ran a few laps around the yard a while ago. I’m going to clean it up and put it in.
Thanks to Bubba for passing this stuff on to me:
Been a while since I had a crankstart bus 🙂 Last one was a 58DDWT too!mtnbusParticipantNovember 16, 2018 at 8:17 amPost count: 1101
Your bus looks great ! That Wurlitzer bus was badass too, and that 57DD we should’ve take the rear bumper off……damnFranzKeymasterNovember 16, 2018 at 9:17 amPost count: 3532
I heard of a logo bus in Cortez for sale. The same guy has a pelican red /black 59 ghia for sale too.
Do you guys know anything about this?
Bubba is out of town, we should be able to scoop a few good deals. 🙂volksaddictParticipantNovember 17, 2018 at 6:38 amPost count: 595
Shit he probably knows all about it, the Bubba network has this place wrapped up tight.
Compression checks out good, heads look shiny under the 30 year old grease, A quick clean up, scrape off some old gunk and… Oh shit!Guess it did have some water in it 🙁 It was holding oil till I started messing with it. So much for a quickie…Damn!mtnbusParticipantNovember 17, 2018 at 7:04 amPost count: 1101

I don’t know of the logo bus in cortez ??68tintopParticipantNovember 17, 2018 at 7:35 amPost count: 722
You DD is looking Awesome. That’s sucks about the motor. I have a 1600 cc mystery motor that I bought off a local Gj guy. If u need one. It’s at KCW I was hoping to put it in the run stand one day and see what she says😜BBWBParticipantNovember 17, 2018 at 11:59 amPost count: 825
I got a friend down here in Tucson with quite a few 36hp cases. Could put you in touch if need be.
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.volksaddictParticipantNovember 18, 2018 at 6:26 amPost count: 595
Thanks for the offers Jesse and Ben, I have a 36 in pieces up in the attic I was saving for another project, I’ll rob the case from that. Internals look good on this one, probably just re-bearing it. But we’ll see…
