     He spent the rest of the day scrapping very well aged horse hair tar board.

    When I hear people talking about the hair used by vw in the interior I always hear “whore’s hair;” certainly a curious choice of material and one which I wouldn’t put past 1950’s Germans.

    Riley just finished scrapping the last bits of tar board off the donor section. 55ABB6B4-75F7-4706-B239-B446C269BD842B55E11B-E636-44BA-9D67-180CE62FD2F104455648-8E4B-4B22-8A06-AF20A90FAD9D

    Dissecting all the bits off is his next mission. A2D90803-4DB3-42D1-97E6-188B138BFAE2624378C3-46D7-418E-B2A1-031A10413B29A30F33E6-0361-4E68-8872-222FFDB37319

    We will build it if it comes.

    The plan is to drive this thing home from Colorado at ~45 mph. It’ll take me 3 days lol!

    and after it’ all in… still have the spare area to fix, and the gas heater hack…. 8-(  8-(  takes twice the time to use original stuff, but sometimes it must be done!  😎

    @Vwfool did I read you are in X-Mas Tree business? I have a cool old sign I want to give you, I pulled it from the same place this bus came from. Has a couple pine trees on it; you might be able to paint it up your own way.

    That is awesome. Thank you. I would love to have it.

    Yes, I started a Christmas tree farm from scratch 3 years ago with no clue what I am doing. I have never grown anything but weeds in my lawn so it’s a ridiculous idea. I have roughly 600 trees and I am adding 200-300 a year. I also started growing cherries and apples too.  It’s slow but growing

    @Vwfool right on; nice looking cherries! I started a cactus and succulent nursery about 3 years ago too. Built a huge greenhouse here in San Diego County. Fun times.

    Ok I am sending KCW a rear hatch for my bus so I will throw it in the same box and you can grab it next time you’re passing through CO.
