Sweet!!! Let me see how much $$$ my customer for his subi swap wants for his old air cooled engine. It runs good, that’s all I can promise. It’s complete out and from a bus. Shit it was the white bay camper when you were here.

I have been having fun,learning and gettin some progress on my panel. Super cool bus. I am dreaming all day everyday about how sweet it is going to be someday. Not really in a hurry just wanna build a solid patina panel. I also got the metal for the rear wheel hack so it will be all OG besides the damm little camper windows and the bulkhead hackjob. I NEED A FLIP SEAT IF ANYBODY HAS ONE FOR SALE!!mtnbusParticipantAugust 28, 2017 at 7:52 amPost count: 1289

See if uncle John could just make a couple swivel seats and call it a day !John JonesKeymasterAugust 29, 2017 at 7:06 amPost count: 7335
I think swivels rock…. cheap to make yourself… time consuming though….68tintopParticipantAugust 29, 2017 at 5:01 pmPost count: 746
I think it’s going to be swivel seats. I wanna walk through. Yo Andy what’s the price on that vw motor. I have been thinking about it lately. I can’t decide to take out the camper windows someone cut in in the doors and weld them up or keep em. I wanna weld them up. Franz says keep them I wanna take out and weld them up. I want my body to look stock on the outside. Whatcha think guys? Still trying to post pics but I haven’t figured it out yetPat KKeymasterAugust 29, 2017 at 5:38 pmPost count: 1629PeteParticipantAugust 29, 2017 at 7:41 pmPost count: 941
If it were mine I’d keep the windows, probably as pop-outs rather than the jalouse (sp?) too.FranzKeymasterAugust 30, 2017 at 8:51 amPost count: 3905
Panel buses suck. Its like a dungeon in the back. Great for hiding junk. Bad for a camper.
You bus is already hacked. Embrace it. Maybe get some different style windows?
Bubba has these for sale on samba. They would look good on your bus.

Ya don’t put it back to panel status! We loaded a middle seat into the barndoor for the Seattle trip…wasn’t much fun sitting back there for any period of time??mtnbusParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 12:23 pmPost count: 1289
You can have the windows Jesse, if you want em.JbParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 2:51 pmPost count: 64868tintopParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 5:18 pmPost count: 746
<p style=”text-align: right;”> 🙁 It’s kinda funny I have 3 funky little windows hacked in the cargo doors. They are only 8 inch or so. I didn’t want to hack it up. But i am thinking about it there is 2 on passanger and one on the drivers side in the cargo doors.</p>John JonesKeymasterAugust 30, 2017 at 5:42 pmPost count: 7335
I would cut larger holes and put the larger windows in all 4 doors…. 🙂 🙂 🙂PeteParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 6:06 pmPost count: 941
