    Still polishing on this, did some this morning… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย Getting there… Need to pull the trans soon and send it over to painters..

    I’m thinking 3.44 with an .082 4th…. I want the RPM’s as low as I can keep them on the highway…. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Or more top speed for “Interstate trips” ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    4.5’s on the front of this is gonna get motor home looking… ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Not much teeth on that metal.

    I guess if it falls apart there won’t be as much to take back off this time ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s coming out nice… and just as I hoped!!!ย  This bus doesn’t want paint!! No problem. paint gone!!!ย  ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I think I better put some clear on it…..ย  ย Ya know.. it’s only at 500 grit, DA…. That doesn’t sound too fine for clear…. but it looks like it… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I’m very happy to have a direction with this bus… and glad I am changing it up too.., make it more MY bus ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    finish sanding it is my current goal, clear reinstall windows!!!!ย  Get the trans out and to Painters.. Blaine is working on a motor for me.. I hope.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Still want some sort of logo’s on it…

    How about wrapping the roof with a colorado flag??

    Wonder if you can clear it then put a wrap on the roof?

    I dunno… Paint wouldn’t stick up there.. 8-(

    but polishing it.. fuck man,, the work!!!… I am sore from yesterdays work!!!!ย  ย What I like about it is… I feel like once I polish it… it’s done.. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Or I can sand some more… this is only 500 da…. 600 doesn’t make much difference.., I wonder if I did some wet `1000??????

    I don’t want to clear it… so I can always polish it more…ย  I think the light rust in the gutters and suck will look the part… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  All the body lines and jambs and inside and engine bay and bottom are all still L31!!!!!!

    a few pics so far… I am contemplating putting the windows back in and lights back on etc… ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    When I see this I cant help but think of what Hans did with FMJ split. Big motor fully detailed underneath and inside but bare metal and pinstriped and cleared outside. This is by far my favorite bug of all time. Full details here: https://www.oldbug.com/fmj.htm
