Dude!!! I'm working as fast and throughly as I can. I have to have surgery Friday that I have put off for over a year. This will slow me down. Jeff said he would come over and take on some issues for me. I won't be able to lift anything for awhile.

Come on down anytime. I don't know when I will be back on my feet. Hernia operations SUCK. I can barely walk. The bug is close to finish. Just carbs and compressor then should be able to fire up. I got a lot done on the Bus before surgery. I know my deadline!!! The bus rims and caps arrived yesterday. AC stuff should be here Monday. Don't know when and how much I can do in the immediate future. I think I might call you buddy Chris to see if he would like to help design the bus stereo and enclosures we talked about.

Chris and I exchanged some texts. Maybe I can get him to help with the two center consoles and the AC/Stereo cover. I think I will also pick his brain about some stereo options. I also talked with Tom about installing the vinyl around the windows/doors here at my garage so I can get the gaskets, windows, and doors all fitted and installed. Need to get them installed before taking the bus over to his shop to finish the interior. I'm two days after surgery and still pretty well physically unable to walk or stand up for long periods. Don't forget I have 5 wide 5 rims w/tires here for you.

Don't know anyone looking for FUCHs at the moment. I have to send the 3 new ones I just got in the mail back. Wrong finish. They are going back tomorrow. Jeff stopped by this afternoon. Got me out of my chair. We worked out some wiring/switch locations on the bus. Always better to have more than one opinion. We also talked about finishing up the Goblin new motor install. It really doesn't have that much to do. The AC stuff arrived today too. I'm anxious to get this stuff installed (Watson's & Vintage Air) but I'm not sure when I can crawl around again. I've got your rims/tires in the garage

Picked up the Bus today from the body shop where they fixed all the nics I put in her putting it back together. They also straightened up the passenger door which was sagging a little. Repainted about 3 major panels. It cost more than I thougth it would but was worth getting it correct. I drove it straight over to the interior guy to finish up a few items that couldn't be done until I finished assembly. Tomorrow I'm working the "bugs" out of the AC wiring.

I think they are starting on your bus late next week or the next week. He has a 32 ford in there right now that looks about 1/2 done. He promised me he is getting to it asap. I checked on it yesterday. It is under cover and protected.
