    This thing has been on my mind a lot lately. I’m really itching to finish getting it in primer. I want to just crank through it and get it in paint but am already committed to doing it right. It’s likely that I’ll be getting it assembled well into the summer, but I’ve heard senior semester is very front loaded, so my weekends should hopefully be opening up a bit more moving forward.

    That doesn’t mean that job applications are slowing down though! Still have no idea where I’m going to end up or where. I’ve been in contact with a company that does the autonomous technology for Volkswagen though, I think it would be cool to have a hand in the next self-driving bus!

    Bus restos are easy.

    Just a little paint, some new rubber and a good round of cleaning.

    Yeah thatโ€™s the plan! Slapping this thing together should take more than a few days, right?? ????

    Hey Will.. If this has turned into an “Overwhelming and unachievable” project for you Im willing to give you fair money for the basket case that it has become. Think about it

    Thanks Peet but I think I’m already emotionally invested in its completion! I need to have something to show for all the pain and suffering I’ve caused you all! Plus I can’t be without a real bus…

     

    I might be able to help set you up with something though if you’re looking to build a camper… ?

    Are you going to be here all summer restoring a bus?

    We’ll have to get you making some money for the shop.

    Haha probably not ALL summer…. ??

    But Iโ€™m sure we can think of something for me to do.

    Graduation is May 12, so probably shortly after that Iโ€™ll be packing some shit up and heading out your way
