    I’m excited about changing this bus up.. not much… just a tiny bit… then I am gonna get the paint dialed in again…

    I can’t decide what size I want up front.. 4.5’s??  for the max tuck look.  I’m thinking small tire.. 175/55 being the biggest I am gonna do.. maybe even 165/50 for max tire clearance..   Seems appropriate..  and some 5.5’s out back with some 195/60’s…  Detailed ofcourse…. OH BOY…. 😎  😎

     

    Dario kicked ass on my tranny swap yesterday…. Thanks Dario!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’ve been soooooo tempted to shoot JJ an email and ask if he wants to move that Kombi down the road, but I enjoy being married, living in my home, etc…… 🙂

    Going to look great on detailed Fuchs.

    Thanks Audrey and Guys…  I’d like to think we kept this bus in the family… 8-)!!!!!  There was NO WAY I was letting Bill sell it to someone else!!!!!   This is waaaay up the list of awesome busses to own in my opinion.  I hope I can keep and use it forever…    It needs a bit of paint work.. but I could knock it out and put a fresh coat on the whole bus…  Just to make it FRESh again…  Then what do I do with it??  Hide it in the clean shop and preserve it… Pull it out for the occasional car show or cruise… 😎  Be a good one to have on hand to show someone what our finished products look like…  😎   The swivel was nice for that. 😎   I like it has a Z bed already…. I could build another camper… it’s hard enough to outfit one much less two… 😎    Once I get this rig dialed in…. It is going to have an assigned parking spot in the clean shop!!!!!!

     

    Gonna do a few things to my baja this morning… and then some paper work… and… hummmmmmmm

    What?? You need something to have on hand to show people what a finished build looks like?? I thought you were an international VW rockstar!? “John Motha-fuckin Jones!!” – in the Rusty JJ voice

    I’m not so board I am looking that hard for something to do…. 😎   But I was thinking how awesome it would be if you had a garage and a lift!!!!!!  Where or who do I talk to to get that ball in motion… 😎

    I guess I should tinker on my baja next…  I’m thinking of building another Sand Scorcher…8-)  I have loads of bodies around here to choose from…. 😎  I’d still like to do wheelies in the sand…. 😎

    I need t paint my dually again… it’s PATCHY as one of my friends told me… 😎

    Corporate and I like having a roof and windows….  I like a full bodied baja…    I miss the old sand scorcher.. it was a nice car!!!!!!   I am not real fond of the body lift on my baja right now… I mean, I like it… but it is sooo much harder to see out of.  On steep stuff.. You can’t see shit…    So I want to ditch the body lift and build a super light weight and scorcher that will pull wheelies in the sand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  All Blake Wilkey style!!!!!    He probably has an aluminum V8 huh!!!! 😎

    Tube chassis, supercharged LS, and a Mendeola. I bet it’s more reliable than a vw too.

    Whatever you do don’t let Mark drive it!
