    Quafie!!! Nice! Kingenberg? Something fancy?

    Yeah hopefully it will help me hang with the Syncro guys, the Klingenberg and Gleason are the two types of R&P VW had. The Klingenberg is harder to find and is supposedly stronger with a slightly different cut. The teeth seem a little longer and wider.

    Hope people don’t start showing up the Monday before Moab to get a good warehouse lot camp spot. It was crowded last year and its sounding like more folks are coming from farther and wider this year.

    I am showing up there the Friday before shhhh dont tell anyone the inside plans. lol

    Listening to Lin and Sonny’s geological knowledge/theory is my favorite part of the tour. Maybe we do the porupine rim and castle valley over-look for the Saturday cruise? Or onion creek?…Then we can split up. One group to go further out in the desert and camp on BLM. Could we talk Lin and Sonny into a camping trip with their westy??

    That sound like a good plan, I will definitely try to get them out! Would be awesome to have them camping.

    Might be worth having a spot to camp out of town a bit…. I know sonny has land south of town. Could be good to do that instead

    Not a bad idea, I have some thoughts on how to have a couple groups and need to talk to Sonny first since it is his event. If anyone has ideas let me know and I will give them to Sonny.

    I definitely think there will be multiple groups to different areas this year. Could be similar to Syncro Solstice when I went. Still fun and everyone had a good time driving in different abilities to different areas but a  large group at camp.

    I enjoy the tour with the Ottingers but down to do another area not with the tour buses and that will help with a huge bus train. I know Sonny would be open to a small group gathering anytime.

    Next year I think word of mouth for the event would be great, dont want to see this turn into Black Star 2.0

    Justin at Blackline Racing is helping me build the transmission. I learned I never want to build another

    Those UFO’s take a long time to finish…[/quote]

    Yes the wiring sucks trying to keep it simple and clean. It might fit in at Burning Man when i’m finished

    Franz I will take one also for my 65 bus if it has the right number of connections for the 2 speed switch.

    Jesse, awesome to see your bus come together! Sucks the bay is for sale, I have sold many VW’s and regret them all. Life seems to ebb and flow with them and always throwing curve balls at you. Hopefully it all works out and you can keep it.

    BTW I have that window if you are interested, mechanism does not work, glass in great shape.

    The Swell sounds awesome for the 300!

    I think this year is going to be interesting for the Ottinger campout, there is 150 saying they are coming on the event page and I have seen several talk about coming from all over the west. Skinner and UTA boys keep pushing it all over social media. It might have the potential for doubling or tripling the size this year. I will be calling Sonny to give a heads up as I don’t want him to get into trouble with the local govt or bring more attention to him than needed. Best advice I was given working for the Govt is stay off their radar.

    Will be interesting to see how it all plays out, I think there will definitely have to be two trips this year  and more honey buckets aka porta potties.

    Yes I have been making progress but life has taken over a lot since I was there. I need to get back on it, things are sounding more promising for SEMA, hopefully it all works out, I will have some pictures soon. I have been working on the transmission getting it ready to build. Its almost done and looks sweet!!! I found a sweet rear sway bar kit that is apparently available again. I will have an update on this also.

    I have been doing a lot of research into a wireless accessory switch panel so that I have less wires running around, this thing will look like a UFO coming down the road lol

    Next will be building the engine and finishing the floor stuff. Goal at this point is to have it on the ground with everything  complete underneath

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Finished the adjustable beam tonight. Ready for blast and paint.IMG_20191218_212601205</p>
    Removed the heater log and added a tube to the main heater tube. Pat fixed the ugly hole that the previous owner cut and the gas heater hole.

    All the floor is complete and preparing for the 3 compartment floor by the cargo floor that will be between the belly pans and floor to house things like jumper cables etc.

    FYI It wont let me quote or post pics on my home computer

    It was Kelli’s Grandma and went very peacefully and pain free. She was 95 and it was great to see her the minute I got back into town. She was the reason Kelli became a nurse.

    My plan is to have a driver and everything functional on the outside before May. The interior, roof rack and front and rear winch mounts can be worked this summer.

    Thinking of how to do the rear tire carrier/ gas can etc. swing mount on the rear. Thinking of now incorporating the swing mechanism in the bumper in the overrider,  widening the overiders past the taillights so they don’t block them and taking the overrider bar an wrapping it around the side more to the point of the bumper. I think this will look more clean and closer to original  vs bolting a Jeep tire carrier to the bumper like below,  I found one for cheap locally.

    Was a blast there and recovering a little from long days and the Holidays back to back and a death in the family on Christmas.

    I came home with a lot of work to do and buying the tools to get it done. I need to get the transmission and engine built so I can get everything built properly before I bring it back for paint.

    I also have been trying to figure out all of the wiring and other components to put under the floor. I found a nice used Jeep rear bumper with swing out tire carrier that should mount to the original bumper nicely with some minor modification.

    I think I am going to use the Lizard Skin with Ceramic for noise reduction and insulation, people have claimed up to 30 degrees cooler in summer on the inside.

    Starting to realize I dont think I will have this in Moab in April this year, I dont want to rush this build.

    Yes the floor will hinge with the wood on top. They ended up a lot bigger than I thought.

    I have a lot to do before coming back to finish up. O will try and post as I get more done at home.

    Thanks again KCW crew for the hospitality and all the help. Made it back home. IMG_20191223_095429378_HDR
