These things are way cool. I’d consider fabing a brace to triangulate the bottom of the box back to the axle tube. With the wheel center that far down on the box it just seems like a stress fracture around the tube/box junction waiting to happen, especially when over terrain where the suspension cycles through positive/negative camber extremes.PeteParticipantOctober 13, 2023 at 9:55 amPost count: 1134
I guess I better see what I have for paint🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩. If I get off my dead ass and work I could surely have the bottom of my truck done by the end of the weekend👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻😎😎😎😎😎🤫🤫🤫🤫. Army green…. Old mash truck😎. Air Force blue?? Germany flight line truck???
Stick with a ’58 color….maybe Palm Green with a touch of flattener?PeteParticipantOctober 9, 2023 at 5:08 pmPost count: 1134PeteParticipantAugust 10, 2023 at 6:39 amPost count: 1134
I am obviously gonna fix this trans situation and have the Pamper back dialed in.. I’m sure I’ll be done this weekend 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Question is…. Do I keep Towing with the pamper??????? I have proven it wears your axles and fulcrums out as a minimum. No one makes bus axles., Straight axle everything go back to lowered life…. You can buy ALL that shit!!!!!! let’s hear some opinions! Start using the dually???? It’s pretty cool🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫. Sell the pamper to buy a big ass toy hauler?!?!?!!!!!! 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
Straight axle and drop the engine and craddle like the BBOE. Keep tall tires, no camber and it’ll sit plenty high enough.PeteParticipantAugust 9, 2023 at 6:44 pmPost count: 1134
Do you have it archived somewhere or did the library get burned down at some point?
Select “Media” from the drop-down menu in the upper right of the page header (the three horizontal lines). The old forum dialogue isn’t there, but the photos are of many old builds.
(I can’t get it to link directly to the album, but it takes you to the page with it. Scroll down to “Volkcwrod”).PeteParticipantJune 23, 2023 at 7:32 amPost count: 1134
slap some centerlines and muddies on the front of that thing and call it done! great looking bus, can’t wait to see the progression 😀
Raised white letters on the tires, scoops over the hacked vents, flares over the hacked wheel arches, and get Doug to spruce up the interior with some shag and crushed velvet. Hope the E-Z-Go wink mirror stays! 😀PeteParticipantMay 16, 2023 at 6:12 amPost count: 1134PeteParticipantMay 4, 2023 at 12:39 pmPost count: 1134PeteParticipantMay 3, 2023 at 5:50 pmPost count: 1134
Not Craigslist, but Bring A Trailer – that badass custom lowlight KCW did several years ago.PeteParticipantMarch 29, 2023 at 8:41 amPost count: 1134
You can only control your part. It sounds like the customer made other provisions early on for the drivetrain, for whatever reasons. Complete your obligation and tell Tom it’s done as far as you can take it, and to bring a dolly and pick it up within a reasonable amount of time since it’s taking up an indoor storage spot. Basically step back and leave it in your customer’s court to sort out. If Tom still wants to drive it from KCW let him know that can still happen, but he’s got to take the reins and get the parts (and the people if he wants someone other than you to install it) to KCW to do it ASAP.
This new dynamic between everyone is all really unfortunate.PeteParticipantMarch 23, 2023 at 12:51 pmPost count: 1134PeteParticipantMarch 20, 2023 at 12:03 pmPost count: 1134PeteParticipantMarch 20, 2023 at 9:02 amPost count: 1134PeteParticipantMarch 1, 2023 at 6:52 amPost count: 1134
Not much of an update…just driving the wheels off of it. The only thing high on the list to tackle is the tie rod ends need replacing. Also considering adding a pair of Stefi.G’s 36hp rocker shafts…he’s made some that add springs to the outside, so the exhaust valves aren’t floating around…should be really quiet. Pretty slick design I believe.
