Guys are neck deep into Parkway projects that have been getting put off….
I dunno if Corey Hamburg recalls… but this is Tara’s bay in for some work.. anything that was a pin hole before, is now real rust.. Proof positive that if we do not blast the rust away.. it is just asleep till it gets aroused up again…FranzKeymasterJune 13, 2018 at 9:01 amPost count: 1235
Steering box rebuild for Todd Hedgstom. The little 25x36x7 seal is the culprit of oil leaks.John JonesKeymasterJune 14, 2018 at 1:44 pmPost count: 2570
tara’s bay…. we ended up stripping a bunch of places that had bubbling rust.. I guess even the all metal can’t hold down the pitted rust spots.. This time, we stripped em and cut out rust, patched some area’s, and then put POR15 over the pits left… We did get another skin for that cargo door, it came in today… and a lower corner to fix the battery side up nice. I feel like I am going to end up painting most of this bus again!!!! opps… not really the plan.. 😎John JonesKeymasterJune 14, 2018 at 1:44 pmPost count: 2570

Todd Hedgestrom’s steering box fully reassembled and painted in utec 500 urethane silver beige. I’m a good boyscout and leave things better than before. This beats a rattle can job for sure, won’t leak, and detailed like factory.
I’m doing a transaxle replacement and wanted to make sure things are fully tidy. I’ll probably be working on this in the future. A through simple green/powerwash session reveled OG paint on the frame horns. Muy bueno.
The axle tubes and gear reduction boxes were covered in rust. I could’nt live with a clean and re-assemble job. They required blasting + paint. Looking good now. Getting ready for Baird’s party next week.

I need to update this thread badly!!! What I thought was gonna be day of knocking out some surface rust, a day or so of body work and paint and bam bam, done.. well…. Not such is the case here…
Ended up replacing the entire bottom of the cargo door… is had butter finger rust up in there.. it was cleaned out and treated with POR15 before the fresh skin was welded on.. Also, the battery trays were already scabbed in units, and they were the reason for the rust in the corners, so we cut those out and replaced with new units from Wolfsburgwest. While workign on the battery tray side, it was also decided we should replace the lower corner on that side also… sooo… we did it.. Then we kept finding rust bubble’s, nose had some cracks in it, and about 200 rock chips… damnit… anyway… We are ending up painting most of the bottom of the bus….
