Finally found the courage to remove ceiling...... Worse than I could have imagined. Spend all last weekend decreasing my life expectancy. Ran a ton of high-pressure soap and water through the inside after removing the headliner front to rear.

Schalbbed together an exhaust. Heat-shield and radiator cover pending and radiator is not straight making everything-else look askew.

Image

Built and ran a bundle of wire for future use from engine bay to steering column area.

Drove The Bus across The Subdivision today................ holy cow! Weather has been nice the last couple days!

(Please see WTb:Seats Thread :) lolz)

Ordered wheel cylinders, shoes, master, spring kits, and reservoir.

Looking at tires now. Probably going with the 8ply RA08 in a 195/70/14

14's will leave ya stranded somewhere, they are so uncommon these days. Might want to look at bumping it up at least to 15's to get a better tire selection even though they are becoming less popular too.

I'm also trying to figure out tires for my Vanagon right now and I think I'm heading towards 15" Audi wheels with some 215/75-15's, load rated of course :)

Yeah I'm not saying that you can't find them, just saying that they are not very common anymore in any tire shops...anywhere.
