The first show I went to was Bugs at the Branch and I recognized your bug immediately. Cool

It was an icon. It was truly one of a kind.

The bus is very cool too.

Well Saturdays are tough for me. I get out when I can but it's hard to go beyond local when you've been working most of the day. Plus my bus is my only vehicle so, many times, I have to do some sort of tweeking on the weekends to keep it driving down the road...which cuts into my pleasure cruizin. I'll get up that way again. I'll have more time after Bug Jam weekend which is taking all my spare time to prep for at the moment. I definately want to make sure the Jolly Rancher is in peak form for that run.

Yeah I know. People knew Baxter well. I will have the Bus that way before to long. I don't know what it will be but something will make it stand out Smile

I thought about it. I figured I could just make it close to Filmore since mine is a Bay and not a split. I'm not real sure yet though

I will get some more pictures soon and of course it will be at Starbucks Thurs. night. It is so nice having all the room the Bus offers.

Man...I've gotta get out more! I didn't realize that Baxter was gone. That looks to be one very SWEET Bus! Congrats on the deal. It does leave one burning question though...

Did you save enough of the Elvis material to make new panels for the Bus? Very Happy

Can't wait to see the new ride in person!

What coclor do you think I should paint the cylinder tins? I was thinking red but do you think that will be to much red?
I was also thinking maybe that lime green that is in the shroud but I'm just not sure.

If you could keep it half way clean i think white would make it pop but white is..... Why not tie dye them?

How did you do the shroud?

Oh yeah I forgot to ask, why no full flow?

I didn't full flow because there is really no room with the rear engine mount.
The tye dye is actually vinyl and on the cylinder tins it would just get to hot I think. The fan shroud never gets real hot and
so it should hold up well but I think those cylinder tins get pretty hot. I thought about white also but like you said......

Well the motor is finally done. Very Happy I finished it today and pulled the old one out of Buster. While I was there I cleaned and painted the engine bay. I also redid some of the wiring as well. I haven"t installed the motor yet. My plan is to get it in Mon. after work. I can't wait to hear this thing come to life!
