Honestly I just want to get this bus on the road and have some fun without throwing 20k at it :-({|= figured I can get IRS setup with gearing that will suffice out of the box, maybe? [-o<


I've got a tranny with IRS that might suffice. The guy who wanted it fell through after scooping it from KCW

In JBs defense, IRS was stock for a different year and is proven to work well. As everyone knows, Josh's finished product is second to none. I totally understand the idea of building a car in your head and needing to dream big.

No it's not, we have a few things on the plate to take care of first....

bit of apron work, front clip, removable fits and Weber windows on a 65 bug that's getting the big motor treatment.

Our friend Trevor who did the artwork and hooked us up with our t-shirts is building a CC split bug, we've had his pan and fenders at the shop for over a year :-& been picking away but almost there. Clean up mode basically for next few months....give Jrods projects some love, he's been welding away on his bus \:D/

I might haul the kombi up to the shop this summer to strip some schrapnel off and blast the belly? Access the situation further...Still have a few G in funky green to buy ](*,)
