I just wanna see pictures of SOMETHING! Lots of text up here ??, not a lot of photos!
I didn’t think I would like the yellow as much as I do… with my “cute bus” phobia, but I think this looks really good! Especially with the big tires!Pat KKeymasterMarch 5, 2018 at 11:47 amPost count: 1265
Rack of parts all sealed. Color being mixed now.
Soaking up some sun.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KKeymasterMarch 5, 2018 at 3:11 pmPost count: 1265
Window frames and other bits in the clean shop.
JJ is in the booth laying down silver white on bumpers and emblem now.
We will build it if it comes.tlambertParticipantMarch 5, 2018 at 6:35 pmPost count: 295Scott SainParticipantMarch 6, 2018 at 3:52 amPost count: 249Paul SextonParticipantMarch 6, 2018 at 4:30 amPost count: 87
Anyhow… this truck is looking awesome! I’m excited about driving back to Texas and getting a “traveling parts” list together in my head. It will be my first split window trip and any advice is appreciated. Think I’ll be needing to wrangle up a spare tire… Wondering if we’ll make it up Imogene…RustabusParticipantMarch 6, 2018 at 5:58 amPost count: 1842
The more you bring, the less will break!! 😉 😉 🙂 I’d suggest a travel tool kit, points, plugs, condenser,coil, spare tire, extra belt, some fuel line, FIRE EXTINGUISHER, fuses………… maybe a wheel bearing and seal……???? Try to cover a few simple breakdown problems and call it done!!!!! Yes, you can likely pull an engine with a 2X4, adjustable wrench and 3 big rocks but unless you need to, just cover a few mechanical bases and enjoy your Bus!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂BBWBParticipantMarch 6, 2018 at 6:18 amPost count: 795
As new as this rig is going to be, spare tire and AAA towing insurance. But what Rusty said; it has all the basics covered for most any issue your likely to encounter. Maybe a few quarts of oil too.
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.68tintopParticipantMarch 6, 2018 at 6:52 amPost count: 704
Shit you just need a pair of sun glasses and to relax and enjoy the ride!! AAA and a spare tire would be good to just in case. After KCW built my bus I drove it for 2 years and never left me stranded. I have dual carbs so they are tricky. You shit is going to run like a top just cruise at 55 mph the hole way and u will be fine. Top speed for a breakin cruise about 60 and your set is my 2 cents?
