Is the bolt on the spindle on the inside of the bus or on the outside of the bus?

Should be like this

Well I have no clue....Hope you figure it out.....Personally I don't think the camber will not be right with flipped spindles but they should be close....

Thanks Bryce. I think I have it solved. When I set the tie rods thursday I went off of what everyone said about running them all the way in. When I set it down the passenger wheel was pointing to the right hard while the drivers was straight. I let out the tie rod on the passenger side until I had the same measurement on the wheels front to back. Once I set it back down the wheel looks more in line with how it should sit. When I set it down yesterday only the outer tread was hitting pavement, now it looks pretty good.I guess the fact that the wheels were pulled way in from the tie rods had the front end jacked up. Drove it around the neighborhood this morning and it drove like before. Steering seems heavier but other than that it tracked straight. Now change the pulley and I hope it can handle some long trips.
New pics with the toe set.

I think I am going to live with the Nose now but you can have dibs.
Been driving it but did get the interior started and bought new pop outs and painted them along with the front frames. Just need to get my seats to Kips to recover.I snapped my step off on a curb so it will have to be repaired or brackets replaced for a 3rd time.

Thanks. I have been sidetracked for half the year working on the other one so this one has just been driven. I have the seats for it and had planned to have them recovered. Still do, just need time to fix some other things.

Spent time prior to YU trying to get the Blue bus converted to a real Bus versus a 2 seater. I like two seaters but they are usually faster than this thing. I have had the seats for a long time and just got so wrapped up on the westy I ignored getting this one closer to complete.
I had to re glue the interior panels as the white did not hold well with the other glue. While I was at it I asked Mike if he could make covers and cover my middle and rear seat. He did an awesome job and made everyone at our house happy since we can now take the bus out as a family mobile. I did have to stay up late that friday making kick panels and brackets to mount the rear seat since it did not come with any. Thanks Mike!
