    Hot damn!  That looks so bad ass. Congratulations Pat. That is a huge accomplishment.

    Honestly, I haven’t done jack shit to it. I haven’t had the $$ to order the interior panels or anything. It is just waiting on me. Overtime has been close to nothing since getting home so I have zero play money at the moment. Hoping to get it all done in time for the VW show near me in Portland on June 4th.

    Picked it up for a guy I know that wanted to build a convertible baja. Made a couple $$ hauling it back. Hopefully He comes to get it today so it’s not still sitting in the back of the truck.

    The weather finally cooperated and I was able to unload it. Put about 20 miles on it yesterday giving the wife and daughters boyfriend joy rides in it. My brother’s dirty ass enclosed trailer caused it to get dusty as hell.

    Here’s something you won’t see too often. A shorty single cab next to a long bed double cab. Me and my freak bus addiction issues.

    John is probably glad it doesn’t require a frame table and welding two halves back together. This one will be easy

    This top is awesome. I want one for my own camper. What a game changer for space in a bus.

    Hope you get this one going soon

    EF8BDC35-5669-4831-8044-646A5ED9217DAlso, Big Ben, this truck was all your fault.  I loved riding in yours all those years ago and regretted not buying it when you offered it to me.

    Sorry for not posting sooner…….

    I finally made it home late Friday night. Got a good nights sleep and went right back to work half dazed.

    A HUGE shout out to the entire KCW crew.  I want to thank John for our very long friendship which is probably the only way I talked him into building a shorty. You are a great friend and I appreciate all that you have done for me over the years from my dumb phone calls and emails to building me the best damn shorty on earth!

    Thank you to Corporate for putting up with me in your house for like 10 days and feeding me great dinners.  She is a damn good cook guys.

    Pat and Franz I owe you guys a big thank you as well. You guys killed the assembly of this bus from dialing in the suspension, modifying the E-brakes to work and the tons of other modifications and little things no one will ever see. You guys are a well oiled machine and quite honestly it is great to see two guys with so much knowledge and skill work well together.

    Audrey I appreciate all of the work you put into this project as well. From sanding, assisting in the paint booth, assembly and running the media empire for KCW. You are the ultimate bus girl!

    As the saying goes, good work ain’t cheap and cheap work ain’t good.  I went well past my budget, I sold a crap ton of projects and other cars to help afford this as I am not a baller. I am working class guy with a wife and two kids. I saved and hustled my ass off to build this truck.  I also had to get a small loan to pay for the last days work but it was well worth every penny.

    There is not another VW shop on the planet that will let you dude ranch part of your build and put you up in their home and be a part of their family. You all made my crazy ass dream come true.

    Thank you to all of KCW family and crew for an amazing experience, friendship and kick ass little truck.

    The truck is still buried in the trailer as the weather sucks outside right now and I am working for the next couple of days. The first sunny day I am cruising this down the Pacific Coast Highway and will post pictures.

    Just been working on the 350 little things to do. Building a bus is tough, time consuming and expensive but KCW is the best place to build your dream VW.

    John nailed the paint session on the body today. Tomorrow begins assembly.
