SC Fleetline Splitty

Post by Bugger » Wed Feb 01, 2017 9:01 pm

HI guys

Thought I would start this tread to post some pics of my SC Fleetline I bought from a fellow forum member Dsan a couple of Years ago
At the Time He bought it I had it in my mind that he was Crazy as the Bus looked like shit and rusted

I bought the bus about 4 Years ago already and by the Time I bought the Bus I actually then thought What a lekker nice Bus with very little
sheet metal work to be done as I have by then Built a SPlit bus or 2 with some serious sheetmetal work needed

I actually bought a small scale sc splitty and painted the bus that colors
Once it was painted I was not happy with the Paint Quality and then aswell the Darker color top with lighter color Bottom did not do it for me

I there and then Decided I want to have it painted b our other Panel Beater that normally do the Higher and better Quality Paint finishes

I ask around on Face book etc for color sugestions and eventually I decided on the Same Colors as my Karmann Ghia
Light lime Greem Botom and Beige top

I have organized a Samba DElux trim kit made specially for a Single Cab Split Window Bus

Wheels I am going to use is a set of BRM 15"

Will most Probably fit a set of Safari Windows to the Bus

Motor wise I am still hanging in the Air
I got a few choices

2.4 Type 4 Upright twin Carbs

2L type 4 Upright twin Std single choke Carbs

2020cc Type 1 twin Weber or DEllorto carbs nice new Chrome tinware (Still building this motor need to assemble all machining is done)

std 1600 Type 1 Full recon motor with C25 cam and std Carb just to have a casual croozer



Gearbox wise I will Obviously do a late model Recon Bugger :hangloose: Box with might go longer 4th gear

Will Post some Pics later from my Cell

Thanks for Readig :hangloose: :hangloose:

Sambas in South Africa are good for only 2 things: showing off and sunburn.

Jolas the Beige should be going on in the next week

The Panel Beater have Flatted down the Green and ready for the Beige
Then they will do the same with the Beige flat down and
The whole Bus will be coverd again with a few layers of Clear Cote to bring the Shine out of the Paint

I am super Excited to get see the Final Product

HI AlanH
Yes I must Admit myself I was also abit Weary but I though My Ghia looks Good in those Colors

A Vehicle never show its true Colors just out of the Booth
Once one starts to Assemble and start Fitting all the Trimmings then they take on another Face

I think with all the nice Goodies the Bus should show itself Good

Will post Pics later but you guys can go look at some more pics on Facebook on Vdubtech Page album Pierre SC Fleetline


Thanks for Watching
