    Tires sizes are going to be something like 185/60 and 195/65  if I remember what we discussed in the old thread?

    Two tone style paint job with 40% gloss sides?

    Looks like liquid nails. That stuff is tough.

    Maybe some aircraft paint stripper carefully applied with tape over the paint?

    Somebody told me the carbs were off a 47-54 chevy truck. I found them on a baja that was going to the crusher.

    I think baywindows prices are high as ever right now.

    Imagine the parts/service you could buy for the DD with 12 grand.? We could have that bus ready for Moab. ?

    Rebuild your 1776 into a 82 x 90.5 2110cc stroker. Put some junk in the baywindow and off it. You’re not going to need two campers.

    Yo Zack, the new layout looks better.

    I noticed that if you click the thread topic it loads every post from the first one. Which I think may be contributing to the server crashing today.

    I’m not sure if people know that they can click on the time “1 hour, 17 minutes ago” section to the right of the thread topic to automatically take you to the latest post.

    Epic build. Crazy body off rust repair. JJ had the skill, knowledge, and focus to repair the shell to factory fresh condition in minimal time.

    It had lot of original to the bus parts that kept the “soul” intact. Beam, transaxle, pod, speedo, wheels, dome lights and all the doors to name a few. Despite the massive rust repair, this is a very correct/original machine.

    Peet and I tackled skill level 10 assembly in 3 weeks calender time. Many frustrating moments and obstacles to overcome when doing a project like this. I can honestly say that we didn’t cut any corners and did everything to the best of our ability.

    I look forward to seeing the Greg Noble camping box interior complete the package.

    70mph all day long. Uphill even.

     

    The steering/suspension is great too. One hand is all you need on the wheel going through corners at speed. It drives smooth and strait.

    Thanks for employing me for the last 13 years. It’s been fun watching and helping you build your shop. Glad that I’ve been able to stay out of corporate America and only focus on the work in front of me.
