I bought a 69 westy last weekend

I know everyone hates on bay windows but this is a cool bus.
I have already started ripping out the old carpet, stick-on "parquet" flooring, plywood, etc. I've pressure-washed the exterior and cleaned a lot of the interior. It has the original child's cot 9no poles0 and a mint mosquito net. I've got the front wheel freed up and the front brakes look like new and the bearings were packed with clean blue grease. I pulled the engine so I can check the clutch (why the PO parked it) and go ahead and take it down to the shortblock so I can clean and check everything before sealing it back up.

I'll get some pics of the rust/body issues soon.

No pics, but oh well, if you really, really need to see metal removed, turn off your computer and work on your car... ~ Ray-Dean
