Off to The Shop!

It's been quite some time since I last worked on the bus. Something about the spring weather around here motivated me to finish it up last weekend and get it ready for the shop. It only took a couple hours to pull off the remaining items I could, and then I called the tow truck. He showed up this morning, and now it's off to the shop for body work and paint.

With any luck, when it comes back it'll look like this one. I doubt it though - there's going to be quite a bit more work to do on suspension, electrical and interior. Estimated time at the shop: 6 months to a year. Below are some "before the shop" pictures I snapped.

This reminded me of a similar bus I saw few years ago. It had the following text on the side:

"Gas, grass or ass. Nobody rides for free."

Hey Matt. Dunno if you've seen "Little Miss Sunshine" or not. If you haven't, you should, just for the VW bus. When I first saw it, I immediately thought of you and your affinity for such toys. Cheers, Graham.
