Graduating this Saturday, getting 8 stitches out on Tuesday, Junktown by Wednesday? I know ya’ll are busy but does that sound like it would work for you? I can just live in my Vanagon. I’m ready for some much needed time surrounded by busses.
Where ya at Squilly? You get stuck in some fresh pussy?….. aaahhhh hahaha
We will build it if it comes.WillyModeratorMay 22, 2018 at 11:19 pmPost count: 459
Well since I’ve been here working in the background for 5 days I may as well update you all! Mainly just been sanding. Easily the most tedious and lame part, but I much prefer sanding poly than fresh mud. I feel like once the poly is on things are simpler. ??
Worked the long side for a day. I think its starting to look really good, and I like the black poly after all. It kind works like a big guide-coat to help see every little low spot. ??
John helped me get the front doors fit, but man, they really suck to work. I think we got the lines looking really good, so now its up to me to make them nice and smooth, which is a way bigger pain than I thought… ?????????
So they still need quite a bit of work.
I fucked up my other driver’s door by welding a new skin on it before we bent it into shape, so I picked up a new one at BBB that I thought would be pretty low maintenance. Hasn’t turned out that way really though. The lower section had been flattened somehow and needed to be sectioned. Luckily I had a donor piece. Tough spot to make a patch for but I think it came out pretty nice. ????
Finished mudding the cargo doors and the dogleg as well. I think they’re going to look nice in poly ?????
Also got the decklid down as well as the rear hatch. I got started on the hatch, but need to knock the front doors out first.
To help me practice spraying poly on my own, JJ supervised me spray the nose again. Doesn’t need much more work to look great.
My plan from here is to have this thing totally ready for paint by the time everyone comes back from Baja, so I’ll have the shop more or less to myself to focus on this. No one around for me to bother while they try to work. I think I’ll be able to get it done. Hopefully I’ll have the gutter down in poly soon and then I can attack the roof and sand the whole thing a few more times. Good times ahead… ???WAY2COOLParticipantMay 23, 2018 at 3:06 amPost count: 55

You’re a lucky man Will; looks like the Will and Jesse build off in the dirty!ryans65ParticipantMay 23, 2018 at 2:57 pmPost count: 71
So jealous! Wish KCW wasn’t 1800 miles away, would be nice to have a place/ folks like that near me. Can’t wait to see your bus in color.WillyModeratorMay 23, 2018 at 7:07 pmPost count: 459
I know I’m pretty lucky to be able to be here and have the opportunity to take the time to do all this work. I really appreciate all the help I get here too, and that all the guys won’t let me take shortcuts and build a shitty bus. I know it will all be worth it, even if its hard to see the finish line when you’re block sanding all the time…
I think I might start listening to the same Kenny Chesney album over and over again and have random outbursts in the dirty shop and just lose my mind block sanding… ???JbParticipantMay 23, 2018 at 7:18 pmPost count: 350
