Got a line on a good place to get a nice paint job?  This 1986 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper was listed for sale last night on the Portland, OR craigslist with an asking price of only $7,950.  Mechanicaly this appears to be a well sorted stock 1986 Westy and the seller provides a detailed list of everything they've replaced or fixed in the past 60k miles including:  total engine rebuild (63k on current engine), automatic transmission (17k miles), fuel pump, water pump, power steering pump, steering rack, font and rear brakes, tires and all kind of other odds and ends. The kitchen equipment works   The van currently has 232k miles on the body, and that's where the next phase of restoration comes in.  It appears they started to sand and prime it some, but it's still a blank canvas ready for your color of choice.  Pro paint jobs run between $2k - $6k, with a decent "windows out" mid range job being $4k or so.  The main thing I'd ask about before viewing this van is undercarriage rust, as there are no pictures, and no close ups of seams or body panels.   Craigslist Link
