    Rusty needs to do Shasta. I’d say 1600 single port in that panel! Lightweight sst build. Then maybe you’d come camp with us rusty!

    πŸ˜‚ Lack of group consensus highlights my why it’s hard for me to decide!!!! πŸ˜‚

    Since any build is going to use the rims, tires, reduction tranny and motor that I already have, let’s talk about metalwork and additional parts needed.

    Buses in order of work needed…..

    1. 58 Panel For Sure the nicest body welded up 1000 holes already and being a Panel not a lot of jewelry needed. Need bumpers, seats, deck lid and apron.

    2. 64 Β Sportsmobile what I was planning on, needs some rust repair has some big damage to the drivers front roof but I have all the camper windows, lots of OG interior, seats bumpers, taillights etc…..

    3. Β 57 SuperHighRoof uugh, not sure how to evaluate this except if I roll it, I’m the only guy that has one and it would be an amazing camper for non off-road camping.

    4. 58 Standard, lots o body work and I gotta buy more parts.

    5. 71 Standard Easiest of all!! Plug in a motor, clean up electric, then tinker with interior and whatever gremlins pop up while messin with it. NO!!! Where’s Emilee??

    Everybody has an opinion!!!! Let’s hear them!!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
