TIKIGRUVEN!!! I love it!

In tikispeak, "hideous" is the highest form of compliment that one can achieve. I'm striving for hideous with every chisel blow!

Really, man that first tiki is unbelievable. One problem with the van, though... You might run out of space real soon if you keep it up. But please, keep it up.

Very cool, very very cool. Welcome to TC and jumping right in with a great pic! The tiki is rad! The VW symbol is a bitchin' touch maybe even a first! Those teeth reminds me of someone but I cant quite put my finger on who. You got to post pics of the bus! I too am VW bus enthusiast. I have had several of the split window and owned a 21 window micro bus. I have so many stories of fixin' those things on the roadside with popcicle sticks, bungee cords and c-clamps. Good fun, builds character! Finally had to give in too reliable transportaion, but still dream of owning and creating a tikibus.

Thanks again. I had a VW camper as a daily driver when I was younger. Regretted selling. But know I can have one as a hobby. The Tikibus idea came to me as a way to personalize my VW. I have specifically chosen carved tikis for the inside that are not space consumers or have functionality. This tiki once stained will be velcroed down in a small corner.

Many of my ideas however have not come fruition yet so I donít want to post pics too soon. (Well maybe I'll post some interior) But I'll give a hint of whatís to come.... thatched awning, painted tiki mask on the spare tire cover, custom TikiBus sticker for the back, a tiki step stool/camp stool, tiki painted on horn button. Itís been a challenge to tikify such a small mobile place.

Sound like it is going to be sweeet! I still wish I had my Micro bus. I always thought an old retired bus and a little work with a blow torch would make a unique greenhouse or tree house.

I can help you out with the any kustom decals that you may need.
Send me a PM with your address and I will drop one of my tiki decal in the mail for you.

Cheers and have fun with that bus

Man, you need to drink more while carving.
Then maybe your tiki would actually look like a first instead of a twenty-fifth.
Maybe I need to drink less while I'm carving..........
Truly awesome.

Well, here he is with the final look. A little stain and semi gloss. Probably needs a another fine sand and second clear coat. Once he finds his place in the VW, I promise I'll post pics of the interior.

Constructively speaking, Tikibus - THAT'S BITCHIN'! DO ANOTHER ONE!
