66 Standard Micro bus. I bought it in Kelowna and had to trailer it back. It didn't have brakes




Didnt need this. So I got rid of it.


Grab some shit I needed


Made a 4.5" beam


Put my front brakes together


Then did some test fits



After this is sat for a while aside from the one day we pulled the trans out of my bus so Andrew could have a working trans again.

Had the opportunity to stuff the bus in the garage. So i got back to work on it.



I welded in a Vanagon engine hatch


I put a beetle trans in as well as disc brakes in the rear with porsche pattern.


Painted the rims black


Put some 205/40r16 Nitto Neo-gens on them


Put them on the bus


Painted the engine tin


Put the motor in and fired it up


Got it running and driving so I insured it. Then continued working on it


I modified the roof basket off my jeep to fit on it


Showed off my amazing paint skills


Then ripped the phatboy muffler off while leaving my driveway. So I made a new one





And that's pretty much where i'm at today.

Yup. An issue with fuses and automotive merets. Plus I broke the brake light switch but that was during the cruise
