    I’m in isolation too right now, lucky we have a big plot and I can have the kids outside at times with me. I mowed two acres today by hand just to kill time. I don’t wanna be the carrier who passes it to someone and kills a family member. I’ll lay low for a couple weeks and hope things get better around here. Triple Js wishing people health and happiness maybe this is a sign that we all need to slow down and realize how lucky we all are to have what we have.

    best wishes

    Well here is my project I have been working on for the last year and a bit, with a young family time seems to dissapear. I tried to buy this bus since I was 16 years old I went back every year or two and finally got the guy to sell it to me a cool 20 years later. After I got it home I realized It had its fair share of issues as it sat out side for close to 40 years. I have done basically all I want to do to it as of now, it’s a awesome workhorse and I love crushing it around, it’s the only stock height vw I have ever really driven for more than a week. I have everything working and it drives, stops and shifts as it should. I’m gonna maybe pull another 56 into the shop today and start pulling it apart, time for another low rider lol. I always forget actually how long it takes to make something drive properly when you start with a beater, pretty satisfied with this one. Hope everyone is safe and well and hoping to catch up sooner than later.

    Wow Josh. That sgpg is cut up!

    Love the first picture Johnny. I agree projects always take more to finish than the original plan.
