    More green metal in?  Jeff… You put the inner dog leg in first and then the outer? or outer first?

    Inside first, why would anyone do it opposite?

    The side gate is rotted out on the bottom. Like everything on that single.

    If it was a 55 it would be a great project, will take a lot of new metal for  just a 60 tho.

    The last few I have done.. I did the outer skin first… Then I can get those welds on the B pillar at the top of the skin…  I set each end.. and weld it.. Get the top of the outer welded to the B and then put the inner in,,,, make sence?  I’ve done em all kinds of ways…

    Like I said, first time for me for complete doglegs. Try that next time 🙂

    There is a whole order on what comes first when you are doing that much new metal. It can go smooth or not depending on the order of installation.

    A little progress this week 🙂

    WW rockers I had in stock. I like the e coat on their metal but it doesn’t go inside the rockers so not much use there 🙄  Wish they would ship them in 2 pieces so they can be installed right.

    C pillar and short rocker came out nice, cargo door should fit better now. I fucked up and didn’t buy the long C pillar for the other side, wasting time rebuilding that one now 🙄

    Yes I’m ignoring the roof for now, getting the lower stuff back in place. It will need some shrinking and bending, and another hole closed up. 🙄

    Snowing today, can’t go to real work 😀  😀 😀

    Got the left C pillar and hinge pocket rebuilt yesterday, short rocker and cargo rocker burned in 😀 Doing lower nose today, front floor next 😀 😀

    I’ve been slathering Rust Bullet in the body cavities over my marginal sandblasting for a little protection.

    Things are looking up for this poor bus!

    I’m going to leave the little hacked in crooked gangsta windows in it Bubba, even though I really like panels. That means I get to chop up a og high hinge panel door 😮

    Got the lower nose in yesterday, more Rust Bullet slopped on in the nose cavity, short upper nose fitted and coated on backside
