No, it is the original tag. All the panels were duplicated and we cleaned up and reused the original hardware. Lots of "during" photos coming soon.

We have a brand new generator and regulator that should be on in the next day or two that should solve the electrical gremlins.

The ABC crew pulled it off and we debuted the raffle bus at the Blackstar / OCTO / El Prado shows in Southern California this weekend. Now we get the next 100 days or so to work on our own buses before we give away this beautiful bus to some lucky winner in September.

Yes, I believe the Friday morning carabus starting at the HD in Phoenix will happen again this year.

The Arizona Bus Club Raffle Bus Crew has spent many hours and emptied many beers working on the bus lately. The main carcass paint is done and assembly has commenced...most everyone that has helped work on the bus has signed the roof. Doors and such are being painted in the next few days meanwhile...as of last night the bus is on all fours, tank is holding fuel, the trans hits all the gears, the engine is purring beautifully, the brakes are adjusted and bled, e-brakes are working, windshields are in, drivers side jealousies are in, headlights-taillights-fried eggs are in, rear of bus is wired, gauges are in, meaty tires are being installed on the powder coated rims today and with a little more wiring under the dash and installation of the freshly restored Koch steering wheel...this beast will be drivable by the weekend.

Everyone loves pictures so here you go....

Getting excited about Jerome 2014, is ABC going to cruz up from the Home Depot again this year? If so we plan to be there with our 67 Westy with a few friends. It will add around 150 miles to our trip, but well worth every mile.
Thanks ABC!!

JJ-XXIV raffle bus update:
Roof is in final primer.
New KF '67 style battery tray modified to be a '66 only tray and installed.
Fender carnage cut out, wheel tub straitened and new KF fender installed.
Couple more spot welds to fill around the corner seam and final bumping before the skim coat and primer.

Our goal is to drive it to OCTO/Blackstar/ElPrado weekend June 6th.

In the Phoenix, AZ area and want to help work on the bus?
Just check our website for the next work party. www.azbusclub.org

BTW...we are in need of one radio knob...we gladly accept donations and sending us this one tiny part may just be the good karma you need to be the lucky winner this September.

Hey Bill!

The bus club took a vote and have elected you as this years raffle bus pilot to the Jerome Jamboree XIV. We will be sending you the drivers door handle shortly so you can lick it and mail it back securing your ride.

By the way...this years bus is a camper so you've got somewhere to sleep until the winner is picked Sunday morning...hopefully you don't soil it too much with your wet dreaming Embarassed

Yes, Jim is rebuilding the engine this year just as he has done for many in the past. I think it had a 1600 dual port but if I know Jim he'll be doing one of his 1776 single port mountain climbers for this one...TBD...???

Is Jim building the engine? If so its going to run like a sewing machine, he helped with my 2275 engine build, great guy and laid back group of people, makes me wish I was still on Shannon Way! (well that and it was -5 degrees in my garage this morning Sad )

Awesome work by a dedicated and great group of friends! I can't wait to see all of your faces when I win it in Sept! Those repair shop campouts are what I'm jealous of! Looks like good, dirty fun!

Thanks for keeping us update Roy!

The Arizona Bus Club has been busy since the work party campout weekend 2-weeks ago. We've been hitting mostly Sundays and a couple weeknights since our project manager and host of the work parties Chad has to work the next few Saturdays.

This poor bus must have been used as a catchers backstop in the PO's backyard for the last couple of decades judging by all the crazy little dents and dings everywhere but we are proud to say the roof and entire drivers side is now massaged strait, glazed with filler and ready for some long board sanding. Both front floors are replaced and the nose is now 90% dent free. A couple of hacked firewall holes are patched and the drivers side rear hatch gusset has been replaced.

We would like to say a great big THANK YOU to everyone that has donated parts, cash and/or labor for this years bus. Without these very gracious donations we would not be able to present such a nice restored bus for the Jerome Jamboree raffle prize. This is the only VW show in the galaxy where a restored split window bus is being raffled off for only $0.50 a ticket and it would not be possible without the support of these contributors. Please be sure to patronize these businesses and tell them thanks for the support of our great hobby and for donating to what could very possibly be your new bus.

Wolfsburg West sent us two giant boxes filled with a bunch of smaller boxes packed full of nearly every part we needed on our list that they offer in their catalog...OMG how awesome is that? These guys reproduce and source the finest replacement parts on the planet for our beloved buses and have donated mucho parts for as many of the raffle buses that Chad can remember.
THANK YOU WOLFSBURG WEST!

Sewfine Interiors is sending us all the quality seat covers, padding and curtains for this years bus just as they have done for the last several years. We cannot thank you enough for this as the upholstery is where much of the intimate time the lucky winner spends for many years to come.
THANK YOU SEWFINE!

Klassicfab just sent us the battery tray, right rear tall corner and a complete right rear fender from the cargo doors back. These guys reproduce the largest selection and most correctly made metal repair panels available and are making nearly enough to completely build a bus from scratch.
THANK YOU KLASSICFAB!

Everybody likes pictures...so here you go.

Don'tcha just love it when a pile of those white boxes with blue letters show up at your garage? And new bumpers too!

The next major metalwork on our agenda is this gnarly area...it had over an inch thick of bondo smeared over much of the fender. We beat on it and got most of the carnage out but opted to get a Klassicfab replacement panel to do it right. This will allow us to straiten out the fender tub behind alot better too.

The Arizona Bus Club has been busy. This past weekend we had a raffle bus thrash party campout and it was a great turnout with lots of things getting cleaned, scrubbed, cut out, welded in, beat in and pulled out. Thanks to all who came out and helped...it was 3 days of fun, food, friends, firepits and funky green panels.
