    Paul is it safe to assume we are just gonna clean up your tranny and motor down to the long block clean up and reassemble kinda thing??

    I wondering on Stance….  The look.. BFG”s?  or something more stock??

    BD’s seem to be sucking up much time…  It will be my baby soon..8-)

    Thank you for researching the OG paint. Grey is out. Not especially a fan of the white over yellow either. Maybe a different stock color.  Still a little time left to decide.

    Spot on with the engine/tranny. Figure I can always swap up later.  Stock stance. BFGs? Are those tires, or a reference to my last wife?

    Sealing Wax Red is a good color choice.  JJ will push for Dove Blue.  🙂  Both were options for your truck year.  If you want to give a nod to your dad Postal Yellow was a special order option, and trucks painted that color would have come with black bumpers, rims, emblems, etc. instead of silver white.

    BFG’s are BF Goodrich All Terrain tires.  They have an aggressive tread pattern and look great on stock height type II’s.

    I wouldn’t rule out the grey….  it’s nice… original and clean looking.    Dove blue is always a winner… 😎

    BFG’s rock.. they are good quality tires that last and work!  Mud terrains are my favorite.. like the pamper has, BBOE has etc. Franz has the same style on his camper too, Chads high roof, and both of Kevins SGPG campers too…

    I want to start making progress on this again this week!!!!!!!  damnit!!!

    Check out General AT Grabbers. I have those on my bus now. Like them more than the BFGs I had before. On the color, is Velvet Green an option?

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

    Velvet green is pretty awesome color… creamy green.. like dove blue is creamy blue..    So your “Old Man” is going to be driving it??  Probably should keep it all stock even tire size… so it’s a bit easier for him to get in and out of.. Maybe even slightly lowered if he is into that?

    Knowing that your old man was going to paint it yellow, tells me he wanted something bright that would stand out.

    My color choices aside from original grey.

    Forrest service green

    DOT orange

    Turkis(orignal VW color in 61)

    Stock size highway radials? BFG 215/75/15 all terrains is what we install on most buses. They do have more aggressive tread, and some side wall tread/design.

    Velvet green, dove blue, SWR… all excellent options and all look especially nice paired with the BFGs on the silver/white rim. I found a photo of a grey SC y’all did, went to OR then sold to an Aussie in 14. Great looking truck.  There’s a yellow/white SC on the Samba that looks pretty stellar too. Gots me some drinkin and thinkin to do…

    I got Johnny back on the stripping and blasting.. there’s gonna be some rust repair to do.. but not bad..  Gates are full of pin holes!!!!! Once it is all blasted… I will make a metal order for it.

    I’m guessing those pinholes were filled with the Bondo? Looks like the driver’s door got the same “fix”. Sho am glad it’s at KCW! Excited to see the metal order! Hell, I’m excited about the whole deal!

    yup.. gates included… someone has already done some welding on the gates..  I hope it’s good enough to not redo.. but well see… 😎

    Yes another single cab build, I’ll be watching this one for sure.

     

    If the light grey was the original color it’s actually not a bad color at all and wouldn’t hesitate to repaint it that if it were mine. Or maybe SWR if you want to change it up, dove blue is a great color but seems like 88% are blue.

    I agree!!!!!bThe grey does look nice and subtle and easy low maintenance color.

    Absolutely John, it’s a great color that in person really looks nice, very subtle indeed until you pull into a VW show and all of a sudden your subtle light grey SC stands out big time. I definitely vote for light grey but it’s not mine and I’m sure whatever color it ends up being will look good.

    Waffling between the original light grey and the SWR… Finally got the two tone white over yellow out of my skull.

    SWR is an awesome color…  stands tall…  Truck is ready for blasting… Parts re done and in the dirty… But… the Barndoors seem to be sucking up all our time.  I’d say I started a bit early.. but that OK.. after SLC show.. I will be railing on this… 🙂  🙂
