Re: '67 Notch

Back on wheels with wide 5 on all corners. Will be getting a set of early type 3 rims re-hooped into safety rims. Cant wait to see them painted and put on. http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u463/midwestdubber1/3%202_zps2isbkisb.jpg http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u463/midwestdubber1/3%201_zpsx...

Re: '67 Notch

Almost 12 months since the last update ](*,) been too busy trying to sort out issues with the Honey Brown notch.. all sorted now so back onto this project.. Was never really 100% happy with having 4 stud on this notch, so I've been collecting parts and made a start on putting it back to wide 5 over ...

Re: '63 11 Window

So far I have managed to make 2 complete frames and I am confident I have enough good sections to make another 2 solid frames. A lot of work but it satisfies me resurrecting original parts for my build... http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u463/midwestdubber1/Pop%20outs/3%202_zpsivplzrkq.jpg http:/...

Re: '63 11 Window

Bought a pile of rusty pop-out frames from the DOVW swap meet the other weekend as I would rather try repair originals then buy repo frames. Some would have looked at these frames and thought they were all beyond repair. Just proves that one mans trash is another's treasure... After studying the man...

Re: '63 11 Window

Spent a little bit of time messing around with the tail lights for the bus today. I've always been a fan of tail lights with a chrome bezel but I couldn't seem to find any apart from the all red US spec ones. I wasn't really all that keen on running the stock Red and Amber lenses with the painted si...

Re: '68 Notch

Had the drums machined on Tuesday and painted them with brake paint. Put the drums back on and got the notch back on the ground tonight. Still have to tension the axle nuts and check over a few things but almost ready to move onto the next step http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u463/midwestdubber1...

Re: '68 Notch

The ol' man gave me a hand to get the gearbox back in today. Happy with progress at the moment, also got the shift rod back in with a new bush and coupling. Bolted the shocks on, connected the handbrake cables, spring plates with new bushes, etc. http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u463/midwestdubbe...
