    Uuuuuugggh, no but you should post a link!🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

     

    Found it!

     

    Hello all! I come broken hearted and seeking recommendations for a reputable/knowledgeable VW metal and body shop in California.
    My wife and I dated in high school and daily drove our 1966 and 1963 Bugs back then. We got married the year after graduation and that same year (2000) we purchased our 1963 23 Window as a project car to build together.
    22 years, three kids, and a couple houses later, we are finally able to afford to restore the Bus. It went in for metal, body, and paint to begin the restoration journey and just came out of the shop a couple of months ago looking good as new!!
    This past Saturday, the most unbelievable and unfortunate event occurred. A neighbor of ours who lives above and to the South of us was operating his skid steer tractor. The tractor got away from him after it unexpectedly shut off and began free wheeling down the hill. It zig zagged uncontrollably down the hill (backwards), ultimately smashing into our trailer, which (you guessed it) was housing our bus. We are located on 17 acres of primarily opened space and this tractor lost control from about a 1/4 mile up the hill. How on earth, of all places, did it manage to free roll backwards that entire way and smash directly into our beloved Bus, is beyond comprehension.
    The good news is, my neighbor walked away with not a scratch, broken bone, or any significant injuries. That’s pretty amazing considering the speed in which he hit. The trailer and bus literally cushioned his impact.
    He sure feels blessed to be alive but terrible about our Bus, but we’ll get it all sorted out. Unfortunately our 22+ years of waiting to finally drive our bus, has been delayed yet again.

    I told the owner about you and suggested that he send it to you. He said Colorado was a long way away but he would consider it. I said who needs to worry about geology at a time like this.

    The White Water sand dunes are off the floy exit on I-70 before you hit Green River. Lots of smaller dunes and washes there. Not the local whitewater unfortuently… that would be awesome if we had some that close though!!
