      Whats up guys? I just started browsing the air cooled forums. I've been into watercooled vw's for the last 15 years and as I get older I feel I'm out growing the "scene". I'm considering a move to air cooled. Anyway, I just thought I'd post up and introduce myself because as my search for a bug begins I may have some questions of what to look out for.

I was totally shocked with the condition of it when I got there. The rust on the front is really all there is, every other panel, wheelwell, floor, corners are spotless with original paint. Now I know what you San Diegoins and others from the west are accustomed to. For this lone reason is why I question why I reside in the east.
      its good its only surface, i always get nervous when i see rust anywhere near the windshield.. it can turn a restorable car into a donor car quick if its bad..

      Yeah, I've been bouncing around Michigan,New Hampshire,(quick blast home for passport) back To Nh. up to Nova Scotia for a quick stop and back.

      No hurry on the bus,it isn't going anywhere.Found a guy in RI with the parts I need,I'm just waiting on him to rip them out.I have 2 motors I tore down and need to get cleaned up.I'm thinking maybe build a 1915 or just go stock 1600 Dp. or 1 of each,and toss the extra on a shelf for now. I need to pick a direction to go and stay with it.

      I was gonna go back up to Nova Scotia and get my car up there ready to bring back, but don't really want to toss cash at that 1 and I don't have room for another car here right now,but the other half of my brain wants to drive that car..For now it sits where it is...decisions,decisions...

      I just want the mechanicals all good on the bus, I'm not worried about pretty paint or fuchs or w/e

      Its actually pretty crazy around here right now, no "real" salvage yards around, but tonnns of old mechanics, enthusiasts, collectors dumping all of they're stuff. Sure makes me happy! haha Ill take some pics of this guys property when I'm there this weekend, its awesome. His big thing was westys with "rare" options, which makes this even better in my situation right now. Prob has 30 vws on his property and he drove every single one to its current resting place.

      Sounds like the dude we have here..Yard full of cars all going back to the earth slowly. 3 story garage loaded to the gills with parts. Built the stairs in there around a cpl. split windows, so those cars aren't come'n out easy.


      When I was breaking down the 2 extra motors my bus came with, I had a pile of WTF is that parts..1 of them had all the Ca. emmisions sheet on it and had me scratching my head ..Never seen that BS before.

      There's some things on the bus (my 1st bus) that had me stumped for a min. or 2..had 2 pieces of tin in it with some engine tins I couldn't figure out for the life of me.Turns out there for the back bumper.Splash gaurd do-hickys.

      You sound like me dan. The dc I am waiting for the title on is the same way. It will be my first type 2 and looking at it I see some things that are easy, i know what that does, then I see some stuff thats like WTF I will have to think on that. I start gettin confused so I walk back over to the oval and ease my mind

      I'm wit gaybino on the 1915. Thats what is in my 65 and I like it. First time I have owned anything besides a 1600.
