Check out the mud dobber nest that Pat found inside the engine tin. That is some good adobe!
He is currently out blasting tin and wheels in the 20 degree booth.Paul SextonParticipantJanuary 24, 2018 at 10:02 amPost count: 87John JonesKeymasterJanuary 25, 2018 at 7:54 amPost count: 7076
I guess I should order paint today…. and flip this rig over and prep the bottom side for some yellow… The bottom of this bus is gonna glow!!!! 😉 😉 😉John JonesKeymasterJanuary 26, 2018 at 2:27 pmPost count: 7076
Well…. I have paint… I have 3 gallons of Yellow, and 1 gallon of white…. Gallon of sealer and all the other shit that goes with it… I am sooooooo ready to start spraying this truck!!!!! I wanna see it in the clean shop! 😉 Pat did a lot of blasting this week… He told me every single peice that needs blasted for your truck is done!!!!!! and thats a quote! 😉 😉 😉 Even your stock wheels. 😀
But…. I need to stick with the order of operations put in place soooo many years ago by the big dizzle… Old times…. Good times… Hard to beleive that was a long time ago….. anyway… There is this decklid, apron and front doors that need some more love…. and I got the New treasure chest door last week!!!! I’m just gonna make sure it fits the hole and right shape, and I wll put it aside till the gates get here too… Blast all that shit together.Paul SextonParticipantJanuary 27, 2018 at 9:51 amPost count: 87
Foshizzle!! Paint colors look perfect. She’s getting so close now, I can hardly keep another thought in my head. Curious as to any gremlins found in that motor…FranzKeymasterFebruary 1, 2018 at 8:31 amPost count: 3786
Pat is prepping engine tin for paint. I think we can fully assemble this machine in a week if we plan it right.FranzKeymasterFebruary 1, 2018 at 8:35 amPost count: 3786
Which has me thinking about tires. We usually run 215/75/15 BFG all terrains. NOT like the super aggressive mud terrains that JJ has. Much more highway friendly tire.
Is that OK with you?Paul SextonParticipantFebruary 3, 2018 at 10:07 amPost count: 87
Yes sir. That tire selection sounds fine. Pity it doesn’t come in a whitewall. On another note, I’ve recently acquired a bay window bus. Definitely not my first “fat girl”, but absolutely my first VW. Didn’t y’all used to have a forum for bay windows?FranzKeymasterFebruary 3, 2018 at 10:14 amPost count: 3786
Oh man. Yeah we did on the old site. What year?FranzKeymasterFebruary 3, 2018 at 10:15 amPost count: 3786
