    6 years we’ve had this bus in the shop. Not because it takes us that long…

    About to be finished. We’re assembling the engine right now!

    2332cc with dual 48 carbs.

    Peet made some killer bolt-on mounts to re-locate the gas tank for carb clearance.

    I cut, turned, and welded the filler neck for easier access. The cut is on a factory weld…so it could be converted back to stock if someone wished.

    We’re always getting people bring us old VW parts. Usually junk.

    …but once in a while you find something good. Blue screamer in the bottom of a distributor collection. Paid $6 for it. The former owner was hoping to get enough money to buy two beers.

    Johnny should road trip down to Utah.. it’s probably only 16 hours or so…   Then we can get some pictures with these two!

    We are on week 46 in the logs… a few LESS than the camping box..   I think this means I can safely say.. No matter the condition of your project… worst case… I can usually have it done in a year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yup Thats pretty cool. 😎

    Kelly…. If you have any thing to add.. Sign up!

    Franz has been working on the engine this week….  😎
