    I have this crank stand, I think it’s genuine VW tool, don’t use it much. Anyone want to give me $50 for it? Or a couple KCW shirts??

    You might want to check the top of the cooling tins if you had mice in the engine compartment. They love that spot.

    No deadline really, just had some time last month to get shit done on my own stuff.

    and projects are so vulnerable at this point, naked and all scattered around the shop. I’d like to get past it.

    Sanding filler now, last minute metal work on the shell. got some epoxy and grey on the cargo area, L31 in the cab while it was on it’s side. I’ll need to do another coat now that it’s right side up but it’s good to see a little color!

    Not mine, but I’d have no problem giving the girls a fastback. Not a square, not a notch, fasty no problem!

    Universal design John? I just copied you 🙂

    Epoxy primer, seam sealer, and Rustoleum Grey on the bottom! Yeah, Rustoleum thru a gun. Nice thick coat. When it finally dries it makes a nice finish for stuff that don’t see too much sun.

    This bus is going to show a few scars….

    Painted my first part! Put some L31 from a previous project on the heater log so I could weld it in, left over epoxy on the underside of the floor where the heat tube goes back in, it’s black cause it got epoxied last week with the pedals and e brake handle and stuff. All sealed up where you can’t spray now.

    … Most of 2 days removing blast media… About ready to seal up the underside! But my mail order epoxy primer order came all wrong, and 1 can was bashed and leaking. Even with the insane hazardous material shipping costs paint stuff is cheaper on line than around here.

    Thanks Rusty! I appreciate the motivation I get from you guys.

    Blasting came out pretty good, lots of pinholes to fix now but that’s the way it goes.

    They call this dustless blasting, the glass media is mixed with water and a phosphate to blast with a slurry. Dustless my ass!! The dry wind turned that shit into dust soon it was sprayed, the mud piled up in the bottom making it hard for the guy to see that he missed the corners. I had to keep finding the missed spots and make him go back. Got pretty good coverage in the end tho.

    20180820_130722[1]Getting the media out of the bus is a lot bigger project than with dry – the shit cakes on like sand at the beach when it dries. Have to really wipe every surface down to get it off before you can blow it away. Your setup at KCW is way better for what we do, I think. But it sure was handy to have him come to me!
