stripping it back to OG Turkis paint, looks good so far, once I get it to where I can look at it, I will then start on the engine brakes and transaxle.

I always found honesty to be the best policy...one shouldn't fear others knowing they use common household products, easy off I mean haha.

Any progress is still progress! Keep it going!

The paint stripping looks great! What a great and drastic color change. Beer and or weed can be helpful, I think, for a project such as this. Very Happy

Indeed! Shocked

Must have been pretty solid but just wrinkled! Mine was rust held together with bondo. Laughing

How did you get access to bang it out? Confused

Cleaning the inside out a little, the man that had the bus for 30 years had a hoard of vw parts, sadly I got the bus from the people he sold it to. but it still had some stuff in it, new heads, new Mahle piston set, Lots of new valves, , tons of new gaskets, more points and spark plugs than I will ever need. A lot of Bosch tune up parts, 1 glass tail light, was hoping to find a box of them!! Distributors, New blue coils. Heads piston set and valves will go up for sale, I don't build engines. I build vw's

Well this is how it turned out in the end.

I am wanting to build this bus just to make it a survivor of the Paradise fire. I lost all my parts and am hoping for some help, it needs everything, So if you have some parts to donate I would appreciate it. I need windows, rubbers, seat covers, interior parts handles, trim, locking mechanisms, anything and everything.

Dude! Devastating Mad

I'll scrounge for what little I have to donate, nothing near what the peeps here are probably sitting on. I may have some pieces off my '64 standard that may apply.

Sorry to see that.
