A trip report, por favor?


Hey, so I actually did start a build thread, but I will be 100% honest, the Sambas photo upload became such a pain to deal with lots of photos I didn't have the time to spend uploading 20 photos a thread.

But maybe I will work on a little trip summary

Not to sound impatient... and I know busfusion has only been over for 24hrs, but PLEASE! I even scoured Instagram for an accidental photobomb.

Any updates on the new top? Getting an atelier canvas this may but I have been eyeing the high tops and I especially had a soft spot for the adventure wagon top. Still excited to see the new improved version

A pic of my new trans temp gauge and A pillar.

Oh, and also a nice home built high-top spotted this weekend at Frenchman Coulee, WA.

I love seeing different shapes that can be made from plywood. It seems that old Popular Science and Popular Mechanics magazines often had articles on what one could build with 1 or 2 sheets of plywood. Furniture, go-carts, boats, ice-boats, and possibly high-tops.

You do, eh? Wanna change your mind now?

Seen at our nearby Lowe's, where he might have actually bought the plywood.

Perhaps not the most pleasing to the eye, but it certainly looks roomy. Smile

On the plus side that Astro is an AWD model, so he's able to go more places in more difficult conditions and offend more people.

He is almost dragging ass just sitting there, hopping a curb would be a difficult position.

Can anyone post a link to the actual Flexform product you used as headliner?

I am getting confused on the various products listed under Flexform...

Thanks!
