    The engine is fully done and running awesome. I did a break-in oil change and valve adjustment. Ready for its first road trip.

    That motor looks freaking amazing Franz!!!!!? I love the details that make it look super vintage! Love everything about the carburetors and manifolds with the coating and obviously those stacks!!! The generator looks super fresh and vintage, this is going to look so sick in that giant engine bay! You guys are killing this!

    us after hours hackshows just trying to “keep up with the Jones’s”

    Thanks man! Its a fun engine. Dressed to look old. Nothing too fancy. 100% serviceability and function.

    The tall air filter are something. We got them with the carbs (used from a sand car).

    Regular size air filters will fit better with the spare tire tray. Which we do have and may install later. Or not.

    seats… PITA…  See all those tubes we replaced!!!  see those “feet” on the bottom of the seat…  I am missing two of them. from the other bus….  They are usually bent up…  I’m not sure what I want to do here… just ditch em… try and make something??  They get bent up and are useless in no time.. but.. they are stock.  First time I have seen em still on a seat! 😉

    Good question.  I currently only plan on getting a front seat in this bus.. I want to get it functional and done that way.. then Let Kelly decide if he wants us to do anymore work or take it to TEXAS!! 🙂

    We have a roll of vintage correct black pebble vinyl. Doug is going to make something

    Kelly, your bus is going to a show in Salt Lake City, UT this weekend. Do you want to drive it there? Get some plane tickets sorted, so that you can be in Grand Junction on Friday morning of the 15th.

    Engine is about to go in! We fit it in on friday but the bell housing needed a little more clearance for a 12v flywheel. Kimball Ave test drive tonight!
