Doesn't look too bad... not that it looks that good either... but it is more solid than my bus in the front!

What are you doing with the cabinets? You have some of the parts that I am missing from my '76 Westy. I'd love to go on a little scavenger hunt of the parts that you aren't interested in keeping.
Drop me a PM if you'd be interested.

PM replied to

Ton more cleanning on it, yanked the top off, and the engine out. Hole in the top of the engine looks like it might be the culprit for it being parked! But has a GE engine, will see whats in it when I tear it down. But more cleanning, weather permiting will start sanding it and straightning out the body. Nose popped out pretty decent, needs a bit more but hope to have it ready to camp in 2 weeks!
