UNI filters from CB Performance, came with the off-road carb kit that has a special float bowl vent. 5 quarts of penngrade 20w50 and Bilstien shocks too. The bumper splash pans had some broken-off bolts that needed drilled and tapped.
Ready to prime the oil system, start and drive tomorrow.
The exhaust tip un-bolts, it’s probably a good idea to remove it on rough roads to prevent it getting smashed closed by the bumper.John JonesModeratorSeptember 21, 2022 at 5:16 amPost count: 10406

It’s raining like cats and dogs this afternoon. I know the bus won’t melt…but I’d rather not get it wet and dirty if we’re still working on it.
The engine is fired up in the bus, and everything is cherry. No oil leaks. I have a couple lights to troubleshoot, but for the most part the electrical all checks out. Still need to installed a shifter, speedometer cable, and parcel shelf.Ragtop RonParticipantSeptember 21, 2022 at 5:50 pmPost count: 318

Volvo 12v wiper motor clean-up and install. I found some NOS black commercial wiper blades in the KCW stash too.
The nose emblem clipped in place and JBwelded the small holes around it closed. Then brushed them with some dove blue paint.
Wiring finalized. Parcel tray and splash pan cleaned with simple green. Excellent condition original paint.John JonesModeratorSeptember 22, 2022 at 5:17 amPost count: 10406
Love it.. Shit is going to tight and right! 😎
