    Good Job Willy…. You have you something to be proud of there…ย  and something that will no doubt add to the impression you make on anyone you meet or show that bus too… it’s a bit of a resume if you ask me… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  You built that yourself Willy.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Now… that girl in the skirt…. I dunno guys….ย  She’s fun the first time.. but then.. well,,, more of a liability if you ask me… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Driving it up to Bjg Sur Wednesday or Thursday this week for its first camping trip! Iโ€™ll get some proper photos soon. I also donโ€™t think this bus has ever been to Roosters, so maybe we can do that later this month?

    woo hoo!!! Have fun on your buses first camping trip! Big Sur in your beautiful bus is going to be pretty spectacular ๐Ÿ˜

    Also KCW is always down for a roosters cruise ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

    First night in the bus was awesome! So stoked to finally be able to comfortably sleep in my own bus. We woke up just outside Big Sur at hit the road at 6 to catch the sun coming up on the water. Pretty nice first morning in the westy!

    Hit the hot springs last night then slept on the edge of the bluff with the doors open. It was awesome to hear the waves all night. Plenty of awesome places to pull off the road and camp in Big Sur!

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Still a very cool bus.

    Yup, sure is! Gianni drove her grandparents around in the bus for a bit, they used to have a 1965 21 window that was the same colors.

    Hubcaps are pricey though… I’ve already got over 1000 miles on this thing and 6 nights in it. Got my first paint chip out of the way so I don’t need to worry about that as much. Only issue so far is some squeaky ass brakes… Talked to Franz yesterday and think the shoes could be glazed or the springs might be touching the drums… I’ll try to tear it apart today.

    Oh, also my gas mileage is SUFFERING ๐Ÿ˜”

    I might be driving it a little too hard sometimes, but even when I’m being nice to it and cruising at a good speed on the highway I’m only getting like 15MPG if I’m lucky… My range sucks. A bigger tank is in my future if I can’t figure it out. Maybe its the hot rod heads and 48 IDFs? Any ideas?

    Leaking carb needle/seat? Does it load-up at idle smoke/fuel smell? Look down the velocity stacks with a mirror just after you shut it off. You should not see any drops/dribble of fuel.

    Fuel hose leak? petcock? It has been sitting for like 2 years right?!?!

    Yeah, I’ll take a look around and see if there are any leaks. I remember on the first trip that it was using around 2 gallons more than the Pamper at each fuel stop though…
