I am on hold till I get a back consult with my primary, July 11th… I am going to just keep doing what I do best, Slow down when it hurts, and not push it and see how I feel come July 11th.. I feel pretty good at the moment.. all considering… 😎
The Pamper waiting for some welding…. I got the Russell Mid kit, and it’s gonna work out just fine on my round cradle bus.. 😎John JonesKeymasterJune 23, 2018 at 12:10 pmPost count: 3438
Franz helping me with spindle’s… 😎 Everyone has put a hand in on this one… Thanks guys! I’m excited to get back out exploring! 😎
The friends I hadn’t seen in 20 years are stopping by in a few weeks… They are going on a side by side trip in the mountains… I hope to tag along and camp in my bus and drive my baja with those guys in theor side by sides… 😎

Was that the original tranny? If so you got a lot of free miles on that.

Baja is coming back from apart!!!!! I just gotta hook some wires up and add gas… 😎 and put some glass in I guess…. Maybe not it’s so fucking hot out!!!!!!
Bus is waiting on a tranny from Painters.. I have my mid mount mocked up and ready to weld…
Back is doing well…. I’m sore from all this body work.. but not bad, I can handle it… 😎 Seems like I am back to doing what I have been doing the last 17 years again… I keep saying thats going to change… But I realize now that I don’t have any other interests… I’m not passionate about anything anymore… but work is the only familiar thing for me… and it continually justify’s it’s worth and effort…. So I always revert back to it.. it’s safe, easy, pays me, blah blah blah… Productivity has always been my favorite drug… 😎RSP3ParticipantJune 28, 2018 at 8:39 amPost count: 41
That’s the best drug there is my friend an your work ethic and KCW’s is unmatched!John JonesKeymasterJune 29, 2018 at 7:35 amPost count: 3438
Got a call from Painters… Eddie in fact…. My tranny is done and being picked up by kangaroo today…. 😎 So he told me my old tranny had a 4;12 in it.. and the usual .82 over drive 4th… We had him swap the r/p to a 3;44… and I went to a beetle 4th, .89.. which makes the jump from 3rd to 4th not such a big jump… and now my 1’st through 3rd should be much more usable!!! I know I will probably be down shifted up hills…. But I bet I will be able to do 50 plus in 3rd now…. 😎 I’ve been talking about wanting to try this tranny combo for years… finally!!!!!! 😎BBWBParticipantJune 29, 2018 at 7:59 amPost count: 493
Sounds like the perfect transmission for Subaru power.
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.RustabusParticipantJuly 2, 2018 at 7:00 amPost count: 872
Get that tranny in!!!!! Let’s go campin!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂John JonesKeymasterJuly 2, 2018 at 10:55 amPost count: 3438
MY Tranny is here!!!!!!!! Nothing more important to me than getting my bus back going again!!!!!!! I wish the clean shop was bored.. 😎 I’m just gonna have to kick ass on this body work and get it done and work on my bus!!!!! 😎
You know.. I have been working pretty regular for a week or so again.. I can’t say I feel much different than when I sit around… back wise. or are on road trips…. Seems to me it gives me a reason to get up and get going.. and I do not take any pain meds at all… I’m glad I can keep on going on if I just don’t push it too much… 😎John JonesKeymasterJuly 3, 2018 at 5:17 pmPost count: 3438
