The internet archive has several years of old KCW pages archived. I don’t know if any would have the complete gallery though…the few I checked had the gallery index and the first couple pages of type II projects (John’s 54 single, Don’s Bike Bus, etc) but lacked the photo content.PeteParticipantAugust 15, 2017 at 8:17 pmPost count: 1134
Some of the galleries from this 2015 archive seem to work…was able to view some photos of the dumped pumpkin, etc. Don’t see the album gram Dan’s single…thought it was pre-2015?

I was just supporting the Huge team of KCW Dove Blue Buses John has built. If it was Grey keep it Grey!!John JonesModeratorAugust 16, 2017 at 6:57 amPost count: 13384
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??

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.Paul SextonParticipantAugust 17, 2017 at 4:02 amPost count: 88
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?PeteParticipantAugust 17, 2017 at 5:50 amPost count: 1134
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.John JonesModeratorAugust 17, 2017 at 7:29 amPost count: 13384
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?

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?

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…
