    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˜€

    Sell them all and buy the 58 westy that KCW just finished up for KB! Slim down the collection to usable buses! Then you’ll have a runner and then you’ll come camp with us! 😁

     

    emilee is into late bays. She doesn’t bother with that upright bay shit;) hahahaha

    Tire Rack is Awesome!!!! Ordered yesterday around 11 AM, tires dropped off at the garage door at 6 PM today!! Tried to support local a bit as well so I ordered two tires from the local tire shop for my Baja, strangely they were 25 bucks or so more expensive!!!! I will be passive aggressive and helpfully suggest to them that they cut off whatever distribution company they use and switch over to Tire Rack to save $$$$!!! Bitches!!!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
