Well it turns out the center pin bushings are the original ones and were never 
replaced. They are really worn, almost oval. It will cost me $125 plus parts. 
I'm shooting for the Ft. Worth show as the 1st one for this Bus. Unfortunately 
I just looked and the parts I desperately need are out of stock!

Somehow I ended up with a vent louvered trim set that is evidently for earlier 
buses. They are too long. I got them from WW if anyone needs a set they are in 
perfect condition.

Does anyone know where I can look for these trim pieces? I also need later 
model hubcaps because the nut on the rear axles protrude too much to use the 
correct year hubcap. Any ideas where to get some nice show quality ones besides 
The Samba? Of course I have a set I can't use in perfect condition if anyone 
needs a set : )

The last 2 parts I need I think I can get from Ronnie and a FLAPS. Any 
suggestions appreciated!
