    That’s a pretty sweet gig, when you’ve got the missus working with you… when they’re actually working. I seem to be dealing with (I broke another fucking nail), (this shit is getting in my hair)… wise man that Jones…

    Great weekend! Lots of progress and tons of learning for me!!!! I really enjoy working out in the shop with John!!!! As all of you know, but I am going to say it again….. John & the guys make everything  look so “quick & easy”. Far as I can tell, bolting on a single part requires patience, practice, finesse, wiggle, jiggle, repeated loosening and tightening, determination and lots of skill and practice!!!!! Thank goodness John is patient with me!!!!  I did some dirty work removing the old engine seal,  put in fender beading, mostly put on running boards, buffed the dash and cleaned up the bumpers and my right hand is all cut up….. guess I need to work more and get some calluses!!!!!! Great weekend!!!!! ???????????????????????????

    I love going on adventures in our bus!!!

    Good weekend… Lots of work done… Didn’t leave the shop.. which means I didn’t spend any money!!!!!! 🙂  🙂  🙂  🙂  🙂

    I got the engine 100% dialed and ready for service! 😉   I see Peet has it up on the lift and the tranny out… scraping MORE grease off.   I need to get some spring plates notched this morning…  and then I guess I will help in the clean shop on it.. 😉   I didn’t get those fuch’s done this weekend… I got lazy… 😳

    so much goodness to report….. did I mention yoru tranny was the worst greasiest thing I may have ever cleaned in my life.. 😯  😯  😯  😯  😯   It was missing the plugs up front on the mid section…. so we got some plugs and put em in… We also found a bad ground strap, and a bad throw out bearing shaft…   Mounts were shot ofcourse….   But Pat has this shit handled.. and everything will be perfect when it’s done…. 😉

     

    Zack your the proud owner of some detailed Fuch’s.  Now.. Notice only one wheel is a 5.5???  They sent 3 4.5’s and 1 5.5… so yo9ru gonna have s detailed spare also!!!  We ordered another 5.5 today and a nother 145 for the spare. 😉  😉  😉  😉

    Will is gonna have wheel envy…. 😀  😀  😀

    This is such an awesome project. To be honest it gives me hope that a nice build, daily driver can be built without a full blown restoration. It’s amazing.

    I’m jealous Zack
