We might need to add some of that aluminum mesh onto the race car’s scoop! Looks pretty bitchin.FranzKeymasterMay 9, 2019 at 9:21 pmPost count: 3114
Killing it Pat! Seems like you’ve pretty much handled this project the entire way through.
The panel/flake paint job is going to be ridiculous. I’m excited to do it…..seems like Mike has built the car with it in mind from the beginning. I’ve been doing my homework on layout and techniques.RustabusParticipantMay 10, 2019 at 6:56 amPost count: 1776

I haven’t posted a single picture this week… wow… Last Sunday I started on this little moab mishap… 😎
Broken outer dog leg bumper mounts… stripped out threads and missing hardware… I doubt the outside was ever bolted on.. which is somewhat common… 😎 I noticed last time they painted these bumpers they just left them together… I Shoulda thought of that!! what a time saver… 😎 I ended up tearing the bumper down and redoing the whole thing…. it came out tit’s…!
anyway.. Oddly enough… I forgot to take a finished pic… But I got everything repaired painted and reinstalled. and Baird on his way!!! Chip.. You next???? 😎ColeBModeratorMay 10, 2019 at 8:19 amPost count: 1392

Those two are funny how they were ripping their badass buses down the dirt !
fuck it ! Have fun….FranzKeymasterMay 10, 2019 at 9:18 amPost count: 3114
We’ve been promoting driving them for years. Everything on a VW is repairable….some things in life are not.
Baird’s bus is in better condition than it was before the scrape. 😆65DlxParticipantMay 10, 2019 at 3:44 pmPost count: 20
Thanks for fixing Baird’s bus. I was literally “rockin” on Shafer trail. But I think I better wait for Franz to be back at full strength.
i think the refresh needs a refresh. Don’t know if I should start with last year’s Onion Creek or this years Shafer?FranzKeymasterMay 10, 2019 at 5:23 pmPost count: 3114
I have to make an appointment with jj to get my bus fixed too. HahaC.HamburgParticipantMay 10, 2019 at 7:13 pmPost count: 171

Mike loves flashy and loud!!
We stuffed the front window in yesterday.
I fought with WW window regulators that we ordered. They fit like crap and had to be reshaped. In the end they went in the dumpster. I harvested some OGs from the stash. They dropped right in and work like butter!!
Door panels in, mechs and handles, everything works great!
Mike dropped of oil lines also. Started fitting cooler to housing last night. Back to it this morning.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterMay 11, 2019 at 8:44 amPost count: 5923
Pats at it on Saturday… This baby is sooooo close to going home and freeing up a little more space around here!!!!!!!!!!!! 😎 Can’t wait to see it driving.. Actually…. I see no reason why we couldn’t drive it today…. 😎 I might have to look up under the hood and figure out what colors go to what senders in the back…. And we have some stainless MIG wire…. we could mig that intake up….John JonesKeymasterMay 11, 2019 at 8:45 amPost count: 5923
