VOLKSWAGEN MOON HUBCAP

We can’t imagine too many people appreciating an old hubcap as a gift, but we were blown away when new friends surprised us with one! We were told that moon hubcaps were the inspiration for baby moon hubcaps, which people used for their hot-rods and roadsters...See the full post

VW BUS FUEL FILTER CHANGE

The beginning of our cross-country adventure took us mostly through sea level terrain. We’ll always remember how excited we were reaching the highest point in Alabama, a whopping 2,000+ feet, but when we entered Colorado, we ascended 10,000+ feet of elevation,...See the full post

VW BUS SOLAR POWER

One of our main concerns before heading out on our cross-country adventure was keeping our dog, Sunday, cool from hot temperatures. Our VW bus didn’t have air conditioning, so we had always just kept the windows down, which circulated natural air pretty nicely,...See the full post

VW BUS OIL CHANGE

Every 3,000 miles (1,500 if driven hard), we’re supposed to change Moksha’s oil. It’s the life blood of an air/oil cooled VW Bus. We parked him on a flat surface, put a drip pan under the drain plug, opened it up and let it roll. Subscribe to The...See the full post

VW BUS INTERIOR MAKEOVER

One of the larger and more exciting changes to our VW bus, Moksha, was to his interior. We ripped out every piece of furniture, panel and layer until he was completely bare-bones. We cleaned him out and we put in dampening material to reduce noise and increase...See the full post

VW BUS WINDOW PERF

When Hurricane Matthew died down and we received news the electricity was back on in our area, we trekked home. The house didn’t seem too worse for the wear, although a tree fell ridiculously close to it. Once it was inspected, we learned there was more water...See the full post

VW BUS FAN BELT INSTALL

Air and oil cooled motors rely on a properly set fan belt. The belt keeps the fan turning, keeping the motor cool and the battery charged so when it gets loose or worn, it’s time to change it out. Our fan belt wasn’t looking so good, so we decided to...See the full post

VW BUS MUFFLER INSTALL

When 2017 began, our design business, The Lills Design, received a huge influx of traffic and new clientele. We were also able to finally make the fixes and tweaks to our VW Bus, Moksha. We were able to get his brakes done, change out the calipers, replace the rotors...See the full post

VW BUS MOTOR FIX

When we got to back to Beaufort, “Moksha”, our 1978 VW Bus, was running smoothly. Over time though, we began to notice some oil leaking from the middle of the undercarriage. We had plans to get to the Edisto River for our fourth wedding anniversary and...See the full post

VW BUS CV AXEL FIX

When we first picked up our VW bus in Asheville, North Carolina, in November of 2013, we planned to keep driving to Virginia. The only problem was, the state of the back wheel was questionable. We trekked back home to South Carolina safely and had a mechanic friend...See the full post

THE BUS AND I

Our pup Sunday loves Moksha, our VW Bus. So much in fact, we think she’s convinced it’s hers and we humans are simply here to drive her around. It had been in and out of the mechanic shop as we worked on making it bullet proof and each time it returned she...See the full post

ABUELO MEETS MOKSHA

Lee (known as “Abuelo” to family) has had quite a life. He was born in 1931 as the youngest in a family of 11 who lived in a coal-mining community in North Carolina. One day his father left for work and never came back. The mine collapsed, leaving his...See the full post

PICKING UP OUR VW BUS

Before saying “I Do” in 2010, the two of us agreed to never work separately or at nine to five jobs again. We agreed to put all of our energy into creating a successful self-owned and operated design business and we dreamed of (one day) having a horse in...See the full post
