Welcome

Welcome to Survival Bus, here I am restoring a 1977 Volkswagen Sportsmobile Bus, to be used as a Bug Out Vehicle, daily driver and off grid home if needed. I also will write about different prepping and survival topics my family and I learn and do. The first Survival Bus was a 1979 VW Westfalia, I no longer have it, and am starting over.

Engine Overhaul

Well getting ready for cold weather. So I started ripping the motor apart ready for detailing. Everything is going a lot smoother than I thought rust isn't as bad as I thought but there is a few bolts being very tough to get out. I'll update more when I finish getting the motor out.
