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: 109JasonSParticipantJuly 29, 2019 at 5:54 pmPost count: 109

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: 109JasonSParticipantJuly 26, 2019 at 9:07 pmPost count: 109
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.JasonSParticipantJuly 26, 2019 at 7:51 pmPost count: 109JasonSParticipantJuly 26, 2019 at 6:59 pmPost count: 109
So here we are a month later instead of the week later I mentioned before, damn time is flying. I plan to get the order in by the end of next week. Anyone else interested?
If you are wondering the total cost is shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will let you know. They will be less than anywhere you can find one. Thanks againJasonSParticipantJune 25, 2019 at 7:58 pmPost count: 109JasonSParticipantJune 25, 2019 at 7:55 pmPost count: 109JasonSParticipantJune 9, 2019 at 9:02 pmPost count: 109

July would be another great time to get away, especially out of the city heat! I am game for anything but was thinking of doing a trip down to the HWY 12 area in July to check out the area for a good fall trip at the end of September I am planning for the VW camping page. I am sure we can find some hot springs down that way. I cant make the Boise show as I will be rafting that next week but I have always wanted to go to it.JasonSParticipantMay 22, 2019 at 9:32 amPost count: 109
What a killer trip! This gave me even more motivation to get my bus done for trips. Its on the schedule to start in July hopefully and “Next year” will in the bay to work on it! The goal is the first trip to be BBB. More trips like this give me more ideas on what to do to it. Cant wait for the next trip.
This trip is one for the books and will be talked about for a long time, It was a perfect group, trip and everything. John put it best “Still talking about it… Still thinking about it… That was the best rally I have been on!!!!!!!!!” Thanks to Cole and Derek for the effort put into the trip.JasonSParticipantMay 2, 2019 at 9:11 amPost count: 109JasonSParticipantMay 1, 2019 at 11:58 amPost count: 109JasonSParticipantMay 1, 2019 at 11:52 amPost count: 109

Had a blast with you guys again! I am placing a bet that Wayne will have a baja for next year if not in the next few months. Also waiting for Badger to logo his baja. Here are a few of the pics that I have. I have 400 more but going through to get the best. We definitely missed having the Thing at the event. Thanks JJ for starting such a great thing!
Sorry for the long 30 picture post but I couldn’t narrow it down and didn’t want to leave out any of the progression action shotsJasonSParticipantApril 24, 2019 at 11:06 amPost count: 109
Are you guys staying at the warehouse tomorrow night or enjoying a spot along the way?
