    Finished up dressing the welds on the cab floor earlier this afternoon.

    FBC8B9AC-3ABA-40B4-9E7A-405A0604EC7D880DA57F-D2AD-443A-91AF-3082787AD9E703532F11-421F-4F9A-A6B5-828AFB3F1926
    Then began working on dressing welds on the nose repair. Got about 90% of the way through with that.

    It seems like all 67 so42 westfalias were painted pearl white or velvet green (or a combo of the two).

    I am very excited to have the kcw team getting her back in shape. This particular bus was in Panama until the mid 70s. It is a miracle it survived.

    Means nothing. I have been a legal adult for over 5 decades and haven’t grown up yet. Willy has the same option.
