I think the ride height is about the same as the old ones. Pretty crazy that the old one either just sheared the threads off or unscrewed itself somehow… either way it rides a lot better now!

    Hey!

    Sorry to pirate your ’59 DC thread…I have a couple questions re interior work and some bumper resto etc.

    Heard about you guys from a mutual customer. Thought I’d jump on here and communicate with you…But didn’t see any other means than to comment on a thread…Since this is a DC thread..

    I live in Ouray and want to get my interior redone/upgraded and also get bumpers chromed. Would like to talk to KCW about that.

    Again, Sorry about the hi-jack.

     

    John

    Here is the rack on the dc… it BARELY fits into the garage… but I’m too scared that one day I’ll come whipping into the garage and not be thinking and I’ll smash that rack off. So I decided to not put it on and wait a bit until it can be parked in another garage haha looks good though! 8DE74A20-3ADC-49C0-B73D-16EDE06F8A82Bumpers aren’t on yet. I’ll do that tonight or Friday. I need to get them back on because I’m going to rototill a garden with my grandma on Saturday. Going to use the dc to haul to tools around with her.

    I helped Weston and Malia out tonight welding together some stands for their new “flower cab” idea. They’re going to use the dc and sell flowers out of the back of it at events for their borrowed garage business. Pretty cool! I love that this truck gets used! Made Weston help me hold metal while I welded and made him grind some welds haha 49941808-31BA-4CDF-92D6-79663C2CEAFD0AA23763-FB2D-45E0-A5B1-2BB0527B32B923B9CBB2-F938-41FB-B7F5-B24216351FCFE98E8240-203B-4FAD-A001-26C224C58793i also put the bumpers back together tonight and I’ll put them back on in the morning! I’m also using the dc to pick up my grandma and her rototiller so we can get my garden ready for spring planting! Aweosme, so fun!

    I’ll update this thread too while I’m at it. Weston and Malia have been using the DC as a “flower cab” at events. People love it! It’s been running great! Funny that their first event was outside of an old VW dealer building here in Provo, UT.

    Those white bumpers look way better! Also, check out those NOS hoops and OG hubcaps I posted a while back. We also got bows and canvas from an awesome dude out of Poland (Jack-Fatboy on samba). I would HIGHLY recommend his stuff. We met him while at Ben Pon and he was a very genuine dude and makes an aweosme product. He showed/told me all the details on his canvas to make it super correct. Pretty cool stuff. He also brought a very special polish beer for KB! Hahaha

     

    all in all this DC is amazing! I love volkswagens!

    Finally got around to putting the rack on the dc! Looks great. Now that the shop is finished this thing can get parked indoors! And it will fit with the rack in the shop’s high ceilings👍🏼C5BC9E12-7BCE-4CAF-845F-07E81F65540D65C19B7F-C63D-4BFA-9709-5079A1F6C697Good group of buses there
