    I was out all night hunting vw parts at a friends moms house. Her husband passed away and left some bug parts. He was a mechanic. I found some junk. A box of Porsche 356 parts and some cool old Thule ski racks gutter mount. Porsche tail lights and reflectors on the rear. 1600 super and Porsche script emblems. Horn button. Just looking for that tool box?  No luck. I might go back in a nice day and look some more. We were in a old motor home. He had old ford and vw junk what a cool place to dig for junk

    I can’t wait to get some glass in this bus. I hope I can get it in before winter. I would try the mystery motor bubba  while I build a big one. I can give it back too later on if u want it. I need to figure out if I should pull the bay motor and make it a stroker. I want to I am tired of losing power up hill. It’s going to slow the roll on the panel rebuild☹️

    I am on the fence about a motor for this bus. Not sure if I should source a case so I can get a 2332 motor built or I get the motor out of my 68 tintop camper and have it built into a stroker 2110. I am thinking I need another motor since I got 2 buses. Thought about doing a small motor just to get it on the road. Thanks to bubba for the hookup on the glass. He is awesome. Without the help from my bros I would still be dreaming of driving a split    Sometimes u find one and u like whoo hoo then the struggle of cash and time and priorities come up and u gotta make some sacrifices to afford your dreams. Thanks guys for all the help. Any body got any advice on my build. I have been selling all of my junk to invest in this badass bus.

    Damm this shit is kinda funny. I am on the hunt but Colts are kinda hard to find in 45. They make the python. That’s like 2000$ and it’s bad ass. But they are like vws they don’t make em like they use too so u want a older model. And there like a following who hoard colt revolvers like they are gold spending lots of money. But I do have a good old timer who has everything u need just gotta find him

    Looks pretty good in there for sure… ? ? You should trade me something for some quick metal work… ?

    sounds good but I am running out of stuff to trade. U still looking for some fire power the ragtop is on the chopping block if I could sell it for like 3500$ or so then I could build my stroker motor but zoey isn’t happy she wants that as her first car  gotta find something good to trade ya

    Sounds good. If I can get shit done at work I can leave at noon. I can’t wait to get that last piece of passanger floor out and clean up those wheel wells cut out those old rivers that held on my flares in the back. Those things were sweet but they had to go!!
