Introduction to the new Survival Bus 1977 VW bus Sportsmobile

Rebuilding the survival bus I found this 1977 Volkswagen bus in North Kansas City has some rust issues interior is pretty good it's going to be my winter project to get it back on the road previous owner did right side bodywork left me the left side to do had to re weld sliding door bottom frame and wheel well. Spent the weekend working on the body stripping the inside and removing a lot of trim trying to figure out what it going to take made a list of what I'm going to do for each month how much is it cost pretty hopeful .

After getting in the garage I started stripping it down getting it all cleaned up ready to start the repairs

The finds in the bus was original business card from salesman and fliers.

Breeding the Rabbits

So July 1st I bred Max with Bonny, he fell 3 times and that should be good. Had a awesome storm last night so it was nice and cool today since it should be below 85F it was about 75F when I went out. I got my rabbits from Joe at Re Oak Farms in Kansas. Im working on the next set of cages for the babies.
