After being displaced by a hurricane, we jumped in our 1978 VW bus and traveled the U.S. for 2+ years (coast to coast and back). 🚌 While on the road, we were guided to a 1961 GM bus that we’re converting into a bigger home on wheels!

The front-end of our VW Bus had never gotten any attention since we picked him up. Every 3,000 miles the front-end zerks, or grease fittings, should be fitted with a grease gun and pumped full of fresh grease. This was our first try at front-end zerk maintenance on...read more
