Well we have Kermit…almost… as soon as the loan is processed, which should be next week. We need to start thinking about some of the other things that we need. Woody got the gas gauge to work, by sacrificing the sending unit from his own bus. We still need to fix the wipers, which minimally need the arms and blades. The motor is dead, but there is another with the bus…. hope it works. We also need a vent latch, and a side mirror. I have found the BusDepot and Wolfsburg West for parts. They are not too bad except if we need the wiper motor.
We also need to look into the leak by one of the rear tire that had some “oil” on it. This could either be a brake cylinder or something in the reduction gear box. This box lowers the gear ratio in the final gear.
Finally…. the most important thing is the stereo. My God, I have not looked at this stuff in a long time! A lot has changed since I put a stereo in my ’76 B*tchin’ Camero. No subwoofers then. Only some 6×9’s and maybe a equalizer / amp. This may even be a separate category.
