    So any advice on how to get a cable out that’s stuck in the tube. Not sure at the moment which one but it has the sheathing. And it’s stuck. I’ve sprayed all kinds of shit in it and tried pulling it out with visegrips clamped to the end and pushing it out with a solid rod.

    Also it’s a deluxe bus with belly pans that are in good shape and do not need to be removed.

    My favorite John Jones quote:

    sanding sucks my balls and there is no need for any pics.. 😎

    I am amazed that this is going to be a work truck getting all scratched and dented.    That is nuts.

    Break hard lines yesterday. We’re decided to run a dual circuit MC on this one since it’s going to be a work truck.

    Welded in a stud for a tee to the front brake  circuit. Need to run both fronts off the residual pressure valve because we’re not running disc brakes.

    I will m finish up the last couple lines when the parts arrive. B202E968-07C0-4E1E-8554-2A7067FC4BF0DCC453FE-273E-45AA-B4C1-043ECA34DFB14C33C01B-B965-4909-A467-892F631D63D91596E8AC-68C3-40F6-BDDF-817729C7E3B7

    We will build it if it comes.

    This truck is getting close!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    I think the engine tin and what not should be here soon.. We got an A1 and I think Franz ordered you a brand new type 4 cooler fan shroud yesterday!!!  We must finally be out of good one’s!!!!

    I think it has come out better than anticipated…. and I imagine, it will not be a shop truck… Probably sit in the warehouse right next to the other Barndoors…. 😎 😎  😎  Quite a collection KB has assembled!!!!!
