    Dodo Born slippery clay lube.
    Medium clay mitt.
    DeFelsko PTG.
    Scangrip lighting.
    Flex 3401/Beast.
    Flex pixie
    Rupes iBrid.
    6” foam pads.
    Blackfire One Step.
    Blackfire Midnight Sun Carnauba.
    Adam’s VRT tire dressing.
    Adam’s glass cleaner.
    Pinnacle leather and vinyl cleaner.
    Metro vacuum.

    Thanks for looking at this cool VW bus!

    I thought the vintage 911 was cool. Wow, keep the the classics coming.

    Great work as usual. Love the color combo.

    Rambler: It was in really good mechanical and body panel shape!

    Tom: I've been busy amigo!!

    Klasse: No, I think that honor goes to the 1961 Ferrari 250 I did.

    LE: That 930 Turbo still holds a place close to my heart, but this was cool!!
