It needs color changing mountain graphics!John JonesModeratorJuly 9, 2022 at 8:06 amPost count: 13325
Still polishing on this, did some this morning… 😎 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…. 😎 Or more top speed for “Interstate trips” 😎 😎
4.5’s on the front of this is gonna get motor home looking… 😎

ok, gonna spend all day sanding with a DA… except for when Audrey brings her bus over for me to look at… 😎
Looking good… 😎
I’m a touch concerned nothing will stick to that shiney ass metal…. 😎 Maybe they sell a clear that also etch’s???

Not much teeth on that metal.
I guess if it falls apart there won’t be as much to take back off this time 🙂Gretchen JonesModeratorJuly 10, 2022 at 11:20 amPost count: 1371

Linseed oil is about the best thing i have found for bare metal cars.John JonesModeratorJuly 11, 2022 at 6:07 amPost count: 13325
It’s coming out nice… and just as I hoped!!! This bus doesn’t want paint!! No problem. paint gone!!! 😎
I think I better put some clear on it….. Ya know.. it’s only at 500 grit, DA…. That doesn’t sound too fine for clear…. but it looks like it… 😎 😎 😎
I’m very happy to have a direction with this bus… and glad I am changing it up too.., make it more MY bus 😎
finish sanding it is my current goal, clear reinstall windows!!!! Get the trans out and to Painters.. Blaine is working on a motor for me.. I hope.. 😎
Still want some sort of logo’s on it…
How about wrapping the roof with a colorado flag??

How about the KCW logo on the roof ? In blue of course.John JonesModeratorJuly 11, 2022 at 6:22 amPost count: 13325VwfoolParticipantJuly 11, 2022 at 7:01 pmPost count: 927
Wonder if you can clear it then put a wrap on the roof?John JonesModeratorJuly 12, 2022 at 11:45 amPost count: 13325
I dunno… Paint wouldn’t stick up there.. 8-(
but polishing it.. fuck man,, the work!!!… I am sore from yesterdays work!!!! What I like about it is… I feel like once I polish it… it’s done.. 😎 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… I think the light rust in the gutters and suck will look the part… 😎 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… 😎

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
Wow, even the hinges! Dang
