    One of the most annoying things wrong with this bus was that someone had cut the rear cargo door hinges so that the door was only held on by the door spears.

    Had to burn the screws out and smack the other hinge pins out. Welded in a new nut plate and painted the hinges. Good as new once it’s hung tomorrow!

    Will and Maddie blew-up the shop, and managed to make this turd drive. Peanuts are for elephants.

    Yup! We knocked it out and left a wake of destruction behind us in the shop! New brakes, soft lines, trans mounts, cleaned out the gas tank, hogged out the bell housing, changed the axle boots, fluids, and stabbed the motor in. We got lucky and only had a few hang-ups, but it was a whole weeks worth of 3am nights and 7am mornings. KCW has really become a 24/7 shop with us working late overlapping with Pat coming in early. Pretty fun.

     

    Thank you John, Gretchen, Franz, Pat, Cole, Zack, and Wes!! Really couldn’t have done it without you all.

    What a badass bus she is!!! Wouldn’t want to get that dirty and tired for anything else.

    Still slightly butt hurt the engine that I did a 2 hour valve adjustment and stripped the rocker stud on didn’t make it in her, but that engine sounds SEXY and loves to rip!

    What’s the next step Willy?!

    Thanks guys! I think next up are some seals, a chrome emblem, slash rear bumper, and taillights. Anyone out there have this stuff? Rusty? Bubba? Jeff?

    You 2 are a cute couple. Can’t wait 2 see the babies y’all make.

    Good thing this rig can haul at least 3 kids with the middle seat that y’all scored. 4487412C-FC7E-47A2-A005-841E3E72F25F

    Anyone want to let go of an OG rear seat to set this rig up as fully functional family hauler?

    We will build it if it comes.

    I heard one of my old customers was wanting this rig.. and Willy Refused to sell it!!!!   That boy really really really really really wants to drive his 15 window….!!!!!!!! 😎  😎

    Thing about this rig is that they are harder to find than “Hens teeth” ya know..  Like finding a 24 year old virgin these days…. 😎 😎  😎   Which, is one of the reasons it has such value to the bus nerds like us… 😎  Willy really hit a home run on this sweet bus find!!!

    I got another call yesterday from the guy who wants to buy this rig from Willy… 😎   He offered DAMN good money too…..  😎    I feel for Willy on this decision.. If he sells it…. we will be calling him Flipper Willy….  If he doesn’t sell it, we will all tell him how dumb he is…. it s real catch 22 for ya Willy!!!!

    Guy wants to lower it, polish it, all new mechanicals, all new interior, and a set of RDW’s on it…. Sounds awesome to me… 😎

    More motivation for me to finish it on my own! Can’t reproduce an OG paint deluxe…

    I need to finish getting the stuff together to make this thing road legal!
