Newby checkin in..........

Post by sleepyjim on Tue Mar 30, 2010 8:27 am

I am in the middle east working, I was living in Woodstock. My son lives in Cartersville. I had a couple buses but sold them before leaving for the sand pit. Just bought another, I bought a 78 Westy..... I plan on having it worked on and spruced up while I am here so she will be ready when i return (end of year maybe).

I am a member of FMBC and was sent here, I think this site is loooong overdue.

I got an engine being rebuilt, but I need someone or more to do:
Sand and remove surface rust (no rust thru) and primer after.
Resurface/Replace various pieces inside.
Redo the seats, re foam, recover????

SO does anyone have a shop or work in their spare time?


Thanks

Glad to see ya made it over here as well. And this site rocks as well as FMBC, the link posted above is to the FMBC site, basically a bunch of campers with a VW problem!! Great bunch of folks over there as well. Cannot remember but think I saw your old buses....Oh yeah I got them!!! Amazing how small the world gets everyday. Still have your old helmet in here so can throw that in the bus for when you get a go fast engine in it! Still have your couch in the living room as well but do not think the animals here would give it up, or you would even want it after they have used it!
And yes, the buses will take over the world, welcome back to the world of westy!!
