Okay, I know, hardly "news" but I hadn't washed it in a loooong time, and it looks so happy now. [Big Grin]

Here's some pics....
a kind of before & after shot, after I'd washed half of the top...

And the clean, happy bus from the front...
 -

And, a youtube video of my engine starting, being revved a tad, and then shutting off. If you look carefully you can see the end wrench used in lieu of an alternator bracket... http://snipurl.com/VW_engine

I'm a proud daddy [Big Grin]

She's a beauty! Love the retro flower sticker - being old enough to remember when they were all the rage. [Happytears]

Nice VW!

I admit when I saw the title of this thread I thought it was a euphemism for "vomit." Then, I remembered that it's "ride the porcelain bus" not "wash the bus." Pardon my intrusion.

Congratulations! [Applause] [Applause]

A nice bus... a very nice bus!

Now it's running, what's the plan for the cosmetic makeover???
