Cleaning Wilson, One Bolt at a Time.

I find a VW logo hidden under the grime
As I work on Wilson, I'm trying to clean him at the same time. (Almost) every piece I remove is cleaned before it is reinstalled. I'm even soaking the nuts and bolts in Liquid Wrench to clean out the threads. The jobs take longer, but it's like night and day when the parts go back together.

I'm doing everything I can to preserve the original Volkswagen and Westfalia parts. It’s amazing how some things will clean up and it’s a good feeling to find a hidden VW logo under the dirt and grease. I like the idea of getting this old Campmobile a little closer to how it looked 20-30 years ago.
