up date recently as of November
and David's first Bus project
And I (David) bought this bus 2 years ago for 2000.00 in Alpine Wy. We
were at an earth first gathering
when we saw it. It took 1 1/2 years before I found the right VW for the
right price. This is my second conversion.
The first one is the first photo in gallery 2. 1954 mack school bus
with a 1955 Jeep wagon. I learned
a lot on that one as well as this one here (81 gmc with a 82 VW
vanagon). I used a torch on the jeep. The
cuts were really jagged. I got really clean cuts on the VW because I
used a angle grinder with a thin carberandom
blade. Doing projects like this just take so much time. But the reward
is great. We use the VW as
an upper level. I'll take some photos of the inside when its finished.
I have about 5 days left before it will be done.
Then we will see you at rainbow here in Utah if your going. I just put
a 20 gallon propane tank on. The solar
water heater and top back rails went up last week. I spent 3 days
getting legal (safety inspections, emissions,
carb tune up, Insurance and registration. I found a place to get
Insurance on you bus. Its costing me
$111.00 for six months, not bad eh. Well that’s all for now. Feel free
to ask any questions. Peace,
PS House paint works great just use a latex acrylic. My Art is getting painted on the sides of the bus tomorrow.
