Glad you’re back S&S. Looked like a “life experience” kind of trip. Some coffin… that Gerson fella does a bang up job on his shipments, huh? Those green gates look great! I’m trying to remember the condition of Dad’s latches. As I remember, they’re all there and serviceable. Anything I need to be hunting to complete this mission? Again, welcome back.RustabusParticipantFebruary 7, 2018 at 7:58 pmPost count: 1998
I want a set of those gates!!!!!!!!!!!!!!John JonesKeymasterFebruary 8, 2018 at 6:38 amPost count: 7076
I got them there awesome gates on and off and in the blast booth! I’ll get the shell in the clean shop, then I will dust those gates off, work em a little bit, and paint em… Latches are all good…. and I can’t think of anything we need or are missing at the moment…
I did some welding and crack repair on the engine lid and then body worked and polied it…. Piece of cake!!!!!John JonesKeymasterFebruary 8, 2018 at 6:39 amPost count: 7076

I’m excited to see this in yellow. Are you going to do the factory gray sealer in middle and yellow outside?

Every night I wish that I had the cash to swoop in and buy the mail bus just so I can brag and say that I own one of the baddest ass VWs built by KCW!!!66beaterParticipantFebruary 9, 2018 at 9:51 pmPost count: 64

John how much unreduced color does it take for the bottom of a bus?John JonesKeymasterFebruary 10, 2018 at 8:22 amPost count: 7076
I went through 3 full cups, to the brim, of reduced paint…. I would say around 1/2 gallon…. and the same amount of sealer…. So I evenly sprayed a gallon of material on the bottom of that bus… 😉 😀 😎 🙂 😛 🙄tlambertParticipantFebruary 10, 2018 at 8:44 amPost count: 322
1/2 gallon sounds good. I would have thought a lot more.
Nice and clean now. ?Paul SextonParticipantFebruary 11, 2018 at 11:00 amPost count: 87
Just now getting the photos/updates… It’s beautiful! I can’t imagine another non-stock color looking better! Dad’s gonna lose his shit! Outstanding as always JJ. Thank you for the updates.
