    ๐Ÿ˜‚ Lack of group consensus highlights my why itโ€™s hard for me to decide!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Since any build is going to use the rims, tires, reduction tranny and motor that I already have, letโ€™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 ย 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. ย 57 SuperHighRoof uugh, not sure how to evaluate this except if I roll it, Iโ€™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!!! Whereโ€™s Emilee??

    Everybody has an opinion!!!! Letโ€™s hear them!!!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    Sell them all and buy the 58 westy that KCW just finished up for KB! Slim down the collection to usable buses! Then youโ€™ll have a runner and then youโ€™ll come camp with us! ๐Ÿ˜

     

    emilee is into late bays. She doesnโ€™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!!!!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
