That’s what the mini single cab is for, a Christmas Tree farm write offVwfoolParticipantJuly 25, 2019 at 10:46 pmPost count: 422
Damn, it’s been 5 months since I have posted on this thread.
I am finally back to working on my stuff almost daily thanks to the invasion of my 7 damn in-laws for two weeks. I have pushed the class 11 to the side and I am working on my double door panel again. The goal is to get it running and take it to the Jerome Jamboree at the end of September. Any one else on here planning to go????
If I get the bus done in time I am going to try and get my latest gem going. I scored myself a ‘63 baja locally. This had to be one sweet ass ride back in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Who doesn’t love that swank ass interior and the bubbled quarter windows.TyHParticipantJuly 26, 2019 at 6:43 pmPost count: 17
Holy shit, that Baja is sweet Scott! We’ve driven by your place quite a few times here and there but I never see your truck so we haven’t ever stopped by. You getting into 944’s now?tlambertParticipantJuly 26, 2019 at 7:44 pmPost count: 418
Cool Baja. Seems everyone is getting into these again.
What happened to the short bus you were doing?

TyH, stop by, ya never know when I am here. I scored the 924 Porsche from the neighbor that I got my ’73 standard bug from. It was an impulse purchase. I actually have it up for sale. I only got it thinking the multi lug rims would fit my daughters car, they don’t. So the Porsche needs to find a new home. $500 you can have it. No title, neighbor lost it and had never put it in his name when he bought is 4 odd years ago.
I still have 2 of my 3 mini buses. The build off one that was pro-street style sold to a kid in California who has sold it to another gentleman who is planning to make it a rolling art display and mural thing for artist. I am slowly working on my original paint 1960 Mango short bus and the 1961 shortened single cab is buried in the back of the garage until I sell a kidney or something so I can talk John into building me a shortened smuggler 😂
I need to sell some more shit so Andy can get after the mass metal repair on my stretched highroof contraption. Too many projects, not enough time and moneyVwfoolParticipantJanuary 2, 2020 at 2:33 pmPost count: 422
Well another 5 months have passed and I am finally able to put some time into my double door again.
I have two questions for y’all. I am working on rebuilding the fresh air box seals and such. On the flappers that direct the air to the sides or out the back what kind of glue do you use for putting on the new rubber?
The other question is anybody know what the correct thread size is for the screws that go into the bulb holder on a bus bullet turn signal that hold the outer housing? One of mine the threads are jacked up. I have new screws coming from wolfsburg west but there web site doesn’t tell you what size they are.
I am also looking for a single drivers side outer bullet turn signal housing. I don’t care if it’s rusty or painted or whatever. Looking for something that will work. Email me at email@example.com or text/call me at 602-616-3083 I have PayPal and will pay for it with shippingcurboParticipantJanuary 5, 2020 at 12:55 pmPost count: 164
Anything cool for sale Scott?

I have a new project in the works, hopefully I can build it quick so I can enjoy it this summer. I took this in on partial trade towards my crazy 80’s baja.
A guy from work offered to fix the fiberglass issues and paint it for a very reasonable price. So I dropped the body off last night. The pan that was under this body was beyond repair with a badly torn up frame head. I had another shortened pan lying around so I am starting with that.
I have a problem however. In all my years of playing with VWs I have never had one where I couldn’t get the rear torsion bars or spring plates off. Anyone got a suggestion what to do? I started to use heat on the spring plate end with no luck.John JonesModeratorApril 22, 2020 at 1:38 pmPost count: 7855

Probably rusted in there.. brute force and lots of prying and hammering..
When are we going camping?? Hey Andy… I heard you got a big ol bus to get done… oh.. and a sandrail… 😎 Do work son!VwfoolParticipantApril 22, 2020 at 9:12 pmPost count: 422
Those bastards were rusted pretty good on the spring plate. Ended up heating the splines by the nose cone and was able to break them loose.
Next question……where do you guys cut into the tunnel to reinforce the clutch cable tube?
