Re: "Double Deuce"

Here is your Deuce in gray & maroon (looks more red tho). I cheated & changed the photo to B&W to make it quicker to accomplish.

Re: "Double Deuce"

Picked up a dinghy for the bus yesterday. It will serve as a daily driver for me since my truck only gets 11mpg.As well as a toad to pull behind the bus when we go on trips without the rockcrawler or boat. It is a '91 and all original including the paint and, uh, the graphics :barf: With in an hour of getting it home I was in the garage with a heat gun.


much better

That thing is no longer than the bus is wide... You COULD hang it like a dinghy off the back!

I love the little Samari's... Looks great minus the girly graphics!

Re: "Double Deuce"

My wife says it still looks girly even after I took the graphics off. I guess I will have to be sure and radiate my hetro-manness a lot while driving it so I dont attract uh, you know

Re: "Double Deuce"

I gotta say, Im a bit jealous.

1st- youre skinning your bus exactly how I am skinning mine. I have four brand new rv windows to go in as well.
2nd- That sammy is awesome. There are very few of those around that haven't been severly abuse and/or modified, much less white(favorite vehicle color)
3rd- You're actually working on your bus whereas I have other obligations that have to be met first, although I am still in the gathering stage(hopefully picking up a generator today)

ps.- If the sammy is too "girly", I'm interested.

Re: "Double Deuce"

Hey thank swhite. Don't be jealous, priorities come first. I have actually taken a short break on working on the deuce because it was consuming our life for a while. The kiddos start school today and we have been gearing down over the last week and getting back on a non summer track. We will be back out there soon working on the bus some more though. As of right now, I plan on haning on to the sammi for, um, ever. I have always wanted one but could never convince my wife to get one until now because we have a need for one. It just happened to work out that I also needed a cheap DD.
