    Think there will be a Badger sighting?????

    I will try to do some convincing on my end, If Kelli is coming then that might help get the family down.

    Sweet deal! Wish I had more cash flow right now as I want to find an earlier beetle. I will send anyone looking for a bug your way.

    Is that Canadian badge going on this? It looks like a re-pop, if you are putting the badge on I have an original VW Canada badge.

     

    **Update** Never mind I see the Winnipeg lettering as I looked closer, my bad

    I will be there for all of that also, stoked for the Salt camping!

    FYI September 27th-29th a group is heading towards HW12 around Torrey and Boulder Utah, should have great fall colors. More details coming on where, but planning as much dirt driving as possible.

    I have a two seater sand rail frame I was planning to fix up and sale but it would be a perfect project if you are interested in it before I start to work on it? I can email some pictures.

    Dario should get it then clean it up and get it functional. Then sell it and use that money to get a split. Looks really clean and solid. Its very tempting to me but I am trying to do less projects and more camping.

    Awesome! Do you think that setup is better than the camber compensator new or original EMPI?

    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?

    Nice Job!, what is the support made out of when the bed is pulled out, Aluminum? That is a nicely done Z bed setup, do you still have the dimensions on it? I am trying to figure this plan out currently for my bus i’m working on.

    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.

    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.Β Β IMG_20181008_152245181
