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.

Installed Windshield

So I got the windshield in the gasket was ready. Put the gasket on the windshield and installed the windshield to the bus. They all went pretty easy. The only thing I can really recommend I used the string trick, and soapy water in a spray bottle is a life saver tried at first and it was hard, then sprayed it and everthing went smoothe, 20min job at the most. And i was alone.

Out for a Drive

Took the kids out to the park and ait lunch, should have a windshield monday, got the gasket for it yesterday. Found some tires down south still seeing if i can manage it.

Paint Job Complete

So after a long day of painting, the bus is done with the paint and on to more pressung things like electronics and engine mods.
