    Whoa!  You dudes are badass!

    We used to swill Colt 45 in high school – and got absolutely hammered, and fast!  And it’s only about 6.5%

    These days I’ve been into various home-brew recipes for brown ales.  Also love me some Guinness.  As the brewery says: “Guinness is good for you!”

    How about you, Pat?

    Ha!  Lori and I met in fourth grade(!)  But she didn’t have anything to do with me – she thought I was a “bad boy”.  Later she decided she liked it (ha!) – we started dating at 16 in 1969, after ending up as lab partners in her Uncle Charlie’s chemistry class.

    I bought the bus in 1973 – we got married and bus camped to Alaska for our honeymoon in 1975.

    And yes, the bus (our baby) looks soooooooo damn nice!!!!

    What do you guys know about the rear torsion bars sold by Wolfsburg West?

    I’ve been thinking it might be good for an old Westy – nobody likes saggy.

    Well, I was going to say  – hooray the metal work is done.  But it sounds like the body work is no picnic…

    Very cool, Pat!  If that block-off plate works – I’m sure the trim piece with the stock Motorola radio will also fit.

    Thanks for checking that out!!

    REALLY nice job fixing up the bad thing I did to that dash, Pat!!

    Yeah – probably the factory cover plate will cover that.  I KNOW for sure the stainless plate I machined (slightly larger) will cover it, so if it’s too big a pain – skip it!

    BTW – do you happen to know what insulation was used on Willbur’s 65 SO42?  It looks real nice and I’d like to find out.

    WOW – REALLY, REALLY nice work, Pat!!!

    Sorry – I forgot to mention – I think the height of the radio opening was also increased a bit back when I installed a stereo…

    Yep – beige grey and sealing wax red was a 1964 color combo, not available in 1966 – except maybe on Westys.  Maybe another piece of evidence for the 64 vs 66 sleight of hand by VW for this 66 bus – with OG safari windows
