    You know I like that color.  You and I are gonna be the founding members of the L21 Army, Truck Brigade.

    What a bummer!  I was going to live BBB thru your pictures on this site.  Hope everyone gets better real soon!

    I know there is a lower inner front door piece I ordered for the truck somewhere around there so hopefully that door won’t be too much of a hooker. I have never been a super fan of dove blue. I like my commercial buses in other colors like postal yellow, pearl grey or sealing wax pink as Franz calls it 🤣 I wonder how pearl grey would look with those detailed wide 5 fuchs 🤔 C8D69F42-0C66-4E05-880C-EAE875219859 This truck is so custom might as well weld in the skylight metal I have for the big bitch. Go full custom. No fake patina. I want a sexy shiney truck. I have hoops for it. Just gotta get a custom cover made some day.

    Damn that’s a good looking DC!  🤣

    Franz, not sure if it’s the same issue, but my DC with the Vintage Speed muffler gives a monster backfire just after shutdown. In Long Beach, it’s enough to make people hit the deck for fear of a drive-by :/

    that sucks…. I had that same problem on my 57 Kombi I towed the puck with a few years back.. It had a vintage speed and some 44’s.. sounded like the clampits showed up when i turned my bus off.. 😎

    I consider backfiring an announcement that my badass rig has arrived.  I’m really in no hurry to chase down the cause 😉

    I jump out of the DC for 1 minute and Bruce thinks he owns it.

    Well done!  What time y’all going to head up to OCTO tomorrow?  I’d like to meet up with you guys beforehand.

    If you are heading up PCH, maybe we can grab a breakfast burrito at Nick’s deli on Main St in Seal Beach.

    If you are blasting up the 405:

    • There’s a place just off the 405 about 5 exits before OCTO to grab a breakfast burrito, Hot Off the Grill (12800 Seal Beach Blvd)
    • Or if you just wanna get there, maybe meet in the parking lot of the Carl’s Jr (1212 N Bellflower Blvd).  It’s about a mile from OCTO

    Hopefully one of these options works for you guys.  Let me know.

    Wait a sec, I stepped away from this thread for a couple days and now you guys are coming out to Long Beach?!?  Hell yeah!

    I live about 10 min from Vets Stadium, where OCTO is held. I’d say you guys could post up at my pad, but I’ve got some major remodeling going on (the kitchen is torn up and has no sink right now). You probably would want to camp at the beach anyway. Bolsa Chica State Beach, in Huntington Beach, is like 15 min away. Let’s get a KCW line-up at the show!

    I thought you lived in Texas!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think a KCW lineup would be dope!!! But I understand, it is a long drive for a 1/2 day swap meet… 😎

    I lived in Texas for 3 years.  Now I’m back in the LBC.  Got a sweet pad by the water, but I’m in full restoration mode on the house.  Next time y’all get up the gumption to head out west, you gotta stop by.

    The Crew Cab got a little work duty today.  It’s not carrying cords of wood or boulders, but it’s now the only car I have that will carry sheetrock or plywood.  I threw down some blankets and cardboard because I don’t want to dork up the awesome job the KCW crew did on the resto.

    Also, those are palm trees in the parking lot of Lowes…the double is officially back home in SoCal (Long Beach) for good.  Texas was great, but the LBC is home and you can’t beat the weather and beaches.

    I used one of those Speed “Clay” Bars and Hybrid Ceramic wax last week (same exact stuff).  They are awesome!  Made the job so quick!  It was so fast I had time to do my wife’s car also.  Then I moved on to my Double Cab.  I didn’t have to “Clay” it, thanks to all the buffing KCW did, but it looks like a frickin’ mirror (again) with the ceramic on it.

    Those pictures are sweet!  Every pic looks like a page from a Vdub shop calendar.  I hope you guys have a great time and get a good spot.  Looks like the line is already getting deep.
