Anyone interested in posting some pictures of their baywindow bus? I'm sure there are some nice ones out there.

I'll get us started. Here is mine shortly after I installed the dropped spindles and BRM's. It was at our local annual VW show. This year there were about 300 plus VW's.

I haven't got the beam in my 78 yet so it still sits idle waiting. Sad I'm cleaning and painting the beam now though. Smile
