Franz, can you tell me more about the weld in rear sway bar. I am looking for something for my bus and assume I will have a lot of weight on top also. Was thing of rear swing out racks like the RMW on the Syncro but I think it will take away from the lines of the bus.
How is the sway bar working so far?JasonSParticipantJuly 31, 2019 at 10:05 amPost count: 76JasonSParticipantJuly 29, 2019 at 5:54 pmPost count: 76

Looks like you need all the mechanicals?
Yes it will need everything new, slowly buying parts so I can hit it hard when the time comes. I am willing to spend most of the money there as its the lifeblood of the vehicle. I am surprised the more I look into it that the body work that it wont be bad, I thought it was worse initially.
Looks like a very solid Bus. Great find and good luck with the project!
Yes it is looking to be very solid, mainly rockers, floors, outriggers and jack points are the worse part. The white paint job protected the originnal paint nicely.JasonSParticipantJuly 26, 2019 at 9:08 pmPost count: 76JasonSParticipantJuly 26, 2019 at 9:07 pmPost count: 76
Used oven cleaner, goof off graffiti remover and aircraft stripper in that order over the winter. About had a heat attack from the stress as all of it seemed very tough on the paint and had to quickly neutralize it.
Then I tried Back to Nature Multi Strip in the Spring, put it on let it sit for about 10 minutes and removed it with little or no paint damage. Found it on sale at Home Depot. I will use it every time now as even if it dried it didn’t damage the paint. The heat from the sun is the biggest ingredient I found.
