I am on the fence about a motor for this bus. Not sure if I should source a case so I can get a 2332 motor built or I get the motor out of my 68 tintop camper and have it built into a stroker 2110. I am thinking I need another motor since I got 2 buses. Thought about doing a small motor just to get it on the road. Thanks to bubba for the hookup on the glass. He is awesome. Without the help from my bros I would still be dreaming of driving a split Sometimes u find one and u like whoo hoo then the struggle of cash and time and priorities come up and u gotta make some sacrifices to afford your dreams. Thanks guys for all the help. Any body got any advice on my build. I have been selling all of my junk to invest in this badass bus.KleakeParticipantSeptember 30, 2017 at 3:08 pmPost count: 599
I would get it to driver status first . Then you can work on upgrades. My 2 cents.John JonesKeymasterOctober 1, 2017 at 2:31 pmPost count: 5841
I picked up your window frames From Purgatory! Their nice…. and complete!!!! Bubba mentioned he might have a mystery motor for ya…. 😉 😉
The motor in the Bay would feel “bigger” I bet in your split… Bays are heavy…. AKA “Fat chicks” 😉
I wish I knew what to tell ya Jesse… You have a WHOLE bus to build.. EVERYTHING… Thats A LOT of freakin work. I have done it more times than most and can tell ya.. it takes a lot of sacrifice to build yourself a bus!!!!! TONS of time.. and GREAT DEAL of money…. 😉John JonesKeymasterOctober 1, 2017 at 2:33 pmPost count: 5841
It’s hard to get into the split window market…. and unless you bought your stuff years ago… You have to give RETAIL BIG $$ for split busses now days… Jesse got a score… Good on him… But he has a full build in front of him…. Your gonna need a plan and some sollid goals that you make happen.. 😉68tintopParticipantOctober 1, 2017 at 8:06 pmPost count: 677
I can’t wait to get some glass in this bus. I hope I can get it in before winter. I would try the mystery motor bubba while I build a big one. I can give it back too later on if u want it. I need to figure out if I should pull the bay motor and make it a stroker. I want to I am tired of losing power up hill. It’s going to slow the roll on the panel rebuild☹️68tintopParticipantOctober 2, 2017 at 11:22 pmPost count: 677
I was out all night hunting vw parts at a friends moms house. Her husband passed away and left some bug parts. He was a mechanic. I found some junk. A box of Porsche 356 parts and some cool old Thule ski racks gutter mount. Porsche tail lights and reflectors on the rear. 1600 super and Porsche script emblems. Horn button. Just looking for that tool box? No luck. I might go back in a nice day and look some more. We were in a old motor home. He had old ford and vw junk what a cool place to dig for junkJohn JonesKeymasterOctober 3, 2017 at 9:50 amPost count: 5841
That top picture has some gold in it… That box could buy you quite a few hours of my time.. 😉 😉 Not that I need any of it… but people do…68tintopParticipantOctober 3, 2017 at 11:56 amPost count: 677
I wish I had the car they go to but I don’t. So they are yours if u want them. I like to hoard parts but lately I am on the sell everything mode to make space and money. Money for my bus and some space in my tool shed to work on some junk68tintopParticipantOctober 3, 2017 at 12:01 pmPost count: 677
Yo Franz what this bumper go to. Volvo or Mercedes. Ford or vw. I am not sure. But I have it if somebody needs one. And a ford panel for the engine.JbParticipantOctober 3, 2017 at 12:22 pmPost count: 544
Pick that place clean Jesse! Great score, be that guy and flip that shit on the scamba or pelican….P stuff is ????? instant capitol for your DD?FranzKeymasterOctober 3, 2017 at 12:24 pmPost count: 2971
Thats a 49-50 ford car bumper aka shoebox. I happen to need it for a coupe that I have!
The hood side panel is a 38-39 1 1/2 ton truck I think. Bring it down too.68tintopParticipantOctober 3, 2017 at 2:41 pmPost count: 677

Cleaning up Jessie!!!!!!! 😀68tintopParticipantOctober 3, 2017 at 9:25 pmPost count: 677
Ya it would prolly look great on bankshot. Hook it up with one of those wall hanger vw emblems for my panel and You can have that Porsche rim. It’s a 1/65 I think.mtnbusParticipantOctober 3, 2017 at 11:35 pmPost count: 868

Scrape, scrounge, score, trade to make this bus a runner !
the best way to do it
stoked to see you driving/camping in this thing68tintopParticipantOctober 4, 2017 at 5:53 pmPost count: 677
I can’t wait to camp and cruise in a 58DDoveblue panel bus. I got lots of work to do still. Pressed bumper buses make my panties wet. I got a set of 58- 61 snowflake tailights for a bug if any one needs a set they are in good shape only needing the inside hanger to mount them. Lenses are OG and in great shape housing is turkish. ?
