    ^^^ They sure do. Big order today. Both bumpers, all the window and door seals, and lots of little bits.

    Also ordered fresh pop out frames from EIS. And all glass, minus front safaris, with the correct 62-63 logos from The Samba.

    Damn the WW orders!!!ย  ย I got the email back about the glass too…ย  ย $2300 for fresh glass for the 23..ย  and that’s no curved glass. no skylights, no corners…ย  HOPEFULLY we can match those to the fresh stuff… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย I don’t even think of glass as a cost on my stuff I use what I find…. But this one needs to be correct…ย  fuck.. This bus is going to nickel and dime Tom all the way till the end….ย  8-(ย  I’m sorry Tom… But if we can stick with it… I promise we can finish it… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย damn it…
