    As if Franz wasn’t busy enough my clutch  went to the floor about a quarter mile from KCW. Called Franz for some advice and help. Long story short I’m on the road fixed and now having drinks less than a half hour later. Franz is the man no doubt it! Again thanks.

    Glad you’re looking over those reduction boxes. Surprised more damage or even a broken axle at the last Moab trip. Thanks for tearing into it.

    It was a crappy pot metal wing nut on my clutch cable and it just stripped itself out after a couple months use.

    I dug a little deeper on Chip’s rear suspension since we have everything apart. I decided to check the spring plate bushings…and sure enough they are worn out.

    I sandblasted a painted everything too. It’s going to be nice and crispy.

    Knockin out the parkway work…  no one does it better!

    I wish we could focus more on resto work it’s a tough balance..   I don’t exactly know how to deal with it other than turn it all away….  As the years go by, I know we are getting more choosey about the jobs we take on… but who else is gonna do it???  I don’t like letting people down…

    Reliable VW repair shops are a dying breed. You guys do it all which is even rarer.
    Plus you take on my super crazy project ideas like the Drug Smuggler and now the short truck and eventually the Big Bitch.

    Keep doing what you are doing. You all are kicking ass.

    I’m very grateful that KCW takes on Parkway projects. I get to drive a safe well taken care of vehicle. I also like watching the resto work that’s going on at KCW. Don’t change, or not at least until after BBB 2022:)

    I doubt there will be much change… 😎  And if your already in the family.. Your good to go… 😎  But no new customers for a while would be nice..  Although I hate to think of the work they will have to settle for if we don’t help em out…. 8-(

    We have two so, so shops here in Tucson. Chirco’s and Doug’s off road. Both have been busy with maintaining VW’s, and selling parts as long as I’ve been here. Chirco’s is trying to do some easy resto work these days. There annual show is back on this year. Oct. 22-24 weekend. Red Barn Round Up camp out next to Chirco’s is a nice in town camping experience. Joe does a nice show, and it’s all free except for the food truck on the day of the show.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Parkway Projects…    were looking pretty good at the moment… If we ignore the phone, and lock the front door… We might be safe from them for abit…. 😎  😎

    Although I was just talking about supporting the local vw scene and such and all that above sounds counter active… 😎

    Power washing on Chips stuff today. It was dirty from all those Moab trips.

    Also found that the clutch bowden tube mount was broken from the torsion housing.

    You’re doing some great work on the Dlx! Under all that grime you probably saw some ash from when I was trying to replace some fuel line once. That’s when I learned to disconnect the battery when I am fixing a fuel leak:). I might of severed that Bowden tube when I was replacing a clutch cable. Only way I could get the cable through the tube. Thanks for giving this bus what it needs to survive me driving it.

    Thanks Chip! It feels good to get you 100% dialed in.

    Rear suspension and RGB assembly today.
