    Doug finished the top. Heck yes!

    The sunbrella canvas was tough to stretch all wrinkles out of…not a very soft or flexible material. Plygrip strips were nailed into the wood to pull the headliner opening to. Looks simple, and I like how the green is glowing from the inside out.

    I got some spraypoly down last night. My parts look excellent. I spent the time sanding bondo so that I wouldn’t have to mess with the primer. A “quick” da job and I’m in the booth. About to paint! Feeling like a badass this morning. Getting through this blasted-bare metal bus resto. I did that!

    Dumb Brazilian decklid that looks like 58 with 66-67 latch. It came on the bus, I reused it.

    I’ve said something similar before, but I love seeing people build their own projects because it gets me fired up and excited about my own. I realize I’m not anywhere close to the skillset Franz has, however, it is the excitement of knowing things like this are possible. Amazing job so far!

    I freaking love this bus!

    I feel like the last one at the party dancing alone. One more cargo door to go…then onto backsides.

    The old build thread got lost with the old forums. 😥 Not much to see though. My bro Johnny traded me a 1966 13 window turd. It was rusty and dented, with an aging amateur restoration. I also hated the dark green metallic paint, in my mind it justified complete disassembly and paint strip job.

    I decided that a 66 13 window is one of the most common late model buses, and that I should cut and customize it to build a cool camper. Nothing to loose. The value (or lack of) is of little thought to me. This bus is going to be used by my family for a long time.

    Here is the old gallery.
