Other than having some electrical problem causing the switches not to work, I LOVE the bus.
Busted up dashboard aside, its in great shape.
I'm forever spoiled now by the power of the 466 and the od and lockup of the 2000 trans.

Sounds like you're a happy camper!

Good move, it saved my engine by finding an intake leak!

Went out to the bus today and Roxy cleaned the drivers area and dash up with some wipes while I removed more decals and adhesive.
IDK if I've mentioned it, but the "Whizzy Wheel" is nowhere near as good as the 3m basic puck. Its a lot slower, and wears out a lot faster.

Threw our new FL plate on the bus and took it for a proper spin around town. Filled it with diesel and ran a heavy dose of HotShot's fuel additive. Smells like Diesel Kleen, but maybe stronger.

Sounds exciting to me. How is she running?

It runs better than anything else I own.
Its hard to see because of the taped dash, but its limited to 55, not 50, and at 55 it looks to be at about 1800 rpm in 5th gear. Once I put full size tires on it, this thing will own the interstates!

Friends from the forum here, Josh and Hillary aka Brokedown, are coming out some time soon and I'm hoping Josh can help me figure out why none of my electrical switches/accessories are working. If we can't figure it out, Chris will hopefully be down around Xmas some time.

I only wear socks when I'm wearing flip-flops.
