Proud Owner Of Roll Another One




This morning I bought my first skoolie bus from my buddy Charlie!
We went to Rural King and I purchased brand new batteries. I am fully aware of the jb weld situation and plan to use it as is for a while. When the time comes I have my buddy Mike who is a diesel mechanic go through it at that point. For now I am looking at getting a set of tires for the rear. My hope is is to have this ready around the tail end of camping season.

We will post pictures once we get it started. Every one is awesome in here and we look forward to being apart of the group! We have exciting future plans for this shorty to travel and go everywhere and are very pleased with our purchase as we originally picked it up from Texas.

Shaun and Nicole

welcome aboard shaun!!!!! are you going to JB weld the Coolant leak? if so, be sure to rough up the area and drain down the coolant so that area is nice and dry.. then clean the area around the leak with BrakLeen then dawn liquid and water and get it good and dry and grease free... I sealed a tranny leak with it back in the day when I was young and broke..
