New front tires!!!!!! The tires that were on the rig were getting dangerous with cracks along the treads and cracked valve stems☹️ Drove it home from the tire shop and steering and handling were 100% better!! Didn’t even know it was bad before! 😀 tire pressure was at 30 pounds so I dropped it to 14 today so I’ll see if anything changes but I’m pretty sure these are gonna be Great!!!!

I’m leaning back to original plan… 64 Sportsmobile!!! I nerded out a bit on SAMBA and pretty sure I have one of the earliest!! Most the parts, rough enough to off-road camp, Shasta… etc….. OG paint, correct camper windows, latches, lights and turn signals, bubble top for pullin up yer pants! About 1/2 the OG interior….. I parted out this Rig like 15 years ago but kept it all!!! Have roof tent mounts, ADAC crest swapped from this dash to the Single, OG front crest is on my wall and my Single has been rocking the front bumper with tent bracket and homemade side steps for years!!!RustabusParticipantFebruary 23, 2021 at 9:50 pmPost count: 2165RustabusParticipantFebruary 23, 2021 at 9:28 pmPost count: 2165
Tire Rack is Awesome!!!! Ordered yesterday around 11 AM, tires dropped off at the garage door at 6 PM today!! Tried to support local a bit as well so I ordered two tires from the local tire shop for my Baja, strangely they were 25 bucks or so more expensive!!!! I will be passive aggressive and helpfully suggest to them that they cut off whatever distribution company they use and switch over to Tire Rack to save $$$$!!! Bitches!!!!😀😀😀😀RustabusParticipantFebruary 23, 2021 at 6:57 pmPost count: 2165RustabusParticipantFebruary 23, 2021 at 8:25 amPost count: 2165
😂 Lack of group consensus highlights my why it’s hard for me to decide!!!! 😂
Since any build is going to use the rims, tires, reduction tranny and motor that I already have, let’s talk about metalwork and additional parts needed.
Buses in order of work needed…..
1. 58 Panel For Sure the nicest body welded up 1000 holes already and being a Panel not a lot of jewelry needed. Need bumpers, seats, deck lid and apron.
2. 64 Sportsmobile what I was planning on, needs some rust repair has some big damage to the drivers front roof but I have all the camper windows, lots of OG interior, seats bumpers, taillights etc…..
3. 57 SuperHighRoof uugh, not sure how to evaluate this except if I roll it, I’m the only guy that has one and it would be an amazing camper for non off-road camping.
4. 58 Standard, lots o body work and I gotta buy more parts.
5. 71 Standard Easiest of all!! Plug in a motor, clean up electric, then tinker with interior and whatever gremlins pop up while messin with it. NO!!! Where’s Emilee??
Everybody has an opinion!!!! Let’s hear them!!!😀😀😀😀😀RustabusParticipantFebruary 22, 2021 at 8:11 pmPost count: 2165RustabusParticipantFebruary 22, 2021 at 7:00 pmPost count: 2165RustabusParticipantFebruary 22, 2021 at 6:10 pmPost count: 2165
