    So Will… How’s the socal weather????    Loving having your bus and yourself home!!!!!! 😎

    I bet you would drive your bus anywhere now, without hesitation!  a long road trip instills a lot of confidence… as it should… 😎  If the machine can handle a couple day road trip… it’s a solid machine… 😎

    Awesome pictures of what sounds like an amazing trip!!!!! I’m glad JJ and corporate got to tag along for part of it! pretty crazy how much you guys saw in so little time!!

    Gotta love pushing VWs! 🤣 I know I’ve pushed Zack not too long ago…I think it’s required at some point in ownership! Yet somehow it’s never the owner doing the pushing?!? 🧐🧐 oh and the running out of gas part… one day we’ll learn to carry gas with us! But the risk is too fun! 😁😎

    I saw a picture on Instagram today of Kula enjoying the bus near the beach as well! 😁

    Yup! I feel really confident in my bus now. It’s so great.

    Kula did get to enjoy it a bit yesterday, unfortunately today is rainy and gross out… so Bev and I are taking care of some Vespa related errands. New shifter cables from wheelieing-related wear. 😉

    It was posted on my story John, which j don’t think you can see from your computer.

    I finally washed the road trip grime off of this thing the other day! I didn’t think we really got them that dirty but red dirt was poring out of the corners and wheel wells and such. Marker of a good trip…

    It hasn’t really helped me get any chicks yet… but it has landed me a connection and a tour at GoPro, which I guess I’ll settle for… 😉😉

    Where are the hub caps Willy? Can’t wait to check this out at Havasu.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Nothing yet, I’m mainly just trying to get my foot in the door for starters. We’ll see.

    I know JJ! I need to start loitering at the beach or something… Did you see that I already took a photo in “Jason’s” spot? On the first day I was back nonetheless!

    It’s gonna be at BBB, but hubcaps aren’t cheap!!! Wolfsburg West wants like $150 each for them so I’ve got to save my pennies…

    I have an extra set of four you can have for $75.00. I’ll bring them to BBB for you to look at.

    Sounds good Ben!

     

    My V-Band clamp done broke… 😢Tiger sent a new one out yesterday though. I’ve been in contact with some local guys here who say this Manuel guy is an SO42 interior building wizard. I’m gonna go check out his shop and some of his work this week and see if I can’t find a new home for the SO69 interior I’ve got in it.

    Willy, these are the hubcaps I have. They’re kinda rough. More than I thought. They could be worked with an English wheel, but chrome wouldn’t do your shiny new paint any favors. I still bring them along for you to look at.

    I was thinking of rolling them smooth, and putting a coat of black paint for my bus. But I think I like the chrome ones better.

    JOB situation is still in ongoing search mode, but its slow around the holiday season so I’ve just been working on other stuff. I’ll look through more of our pictures and see what I’ve got.

    I think you’re right Ben, they might be a bit rough for the California shine on my bus… thanks so much for digging those out though!

    I drove my bus all around San Diego the other day with Tara and it did great until we were coming down my street and it started sounding rattly and was popping a bit. I popped the valve cover off to check it out but it was dark and we were coming back from the brewery so…. I didn’t get to far into diagnosing. It smelled like something was burning though, and definitely sounded like an exhaust leak was coming from somewhere.

    Paranoia set in and I started worrying it may have burned up something important, even though it didn’t seem to be down on power and the mixture screws were adjusting fine. I finally got under to check it out and just adjust the vales for the hell of it and went to take the 1-2 side cover off and noticed the exhaust was bouncing around, hanging just by the V-band clamp and missing the hardware for the other mount. I thought “shit, if it was hanging like this it could pop off…” and thats when I found the 3-4 side header was totally loose.
