I love it when these amazing camper restorations come back up, even though it kills a big chunk of time b/c I will read the whole thing again.

Great to see it in use!

It is beautiful!

Hope that you still have it and use it

Thank you. I do still have it and we going camping in it. Not as often as I would like, but we do enjoy it.

This is the first time I have seen an early Westy with just the beltline painted.



Very possible your bus, maybe one of one? How cool would that be. Like the FCG Westy I have never seen another like yours either.

Looks awesome Paul.

Looks like some recent work to the garage door too. Hope the bus isn't stuck.


Greg, I put the rack on the bus and backed the bus up to the door. The rear of the rack cleared, but as I started pushing the bus in, the front of the rack was about 2" too high. So I let some air out of all four tires and pushed it into the garage. What a pain, but less work than taking the rack on and off.


I have this same problem in my garage at home too. Glad I'm not alone, lol

Yeah, I'd sooner swap over a set of 14" rollers then mess with the rack coming off and on. Time to build a new shop! Make the door high enough for a high roof with a loaded rack.
