hi John, lookin forward to sum updates, very nice.
every1 that gets looked after at your shop is very lucky.
I haven't really relized how much work goes into just 1 project, until i started the metalwork on my 'Kastenwagen' (panelvan). So, far only cut out the rust and started panelbeating, but shit.....ur a gun ....

withn narrowd rears.Is it worth narrowing the rear on a panelvan, with stock rims with wide tires.I'm gonna, lower it as much as possible without the axleshafts hitting the frame.
If you're going through hell, keep going.

Most of the trucks only came with the 'Treasure Chest' door (storage door under the tray) on the passenger side. The dual doors have them on both sides.

Can't wait to see this one done, I need a kick in the ass to get motivated on mine! ](*,)

Dual treasure chest (Lower cargo)doors - passenger side door is standard - dual doors was a somewhat rare option on a bullet SC
more common on fried egg busses


Nice SC Shawn look forward to the build!! Smile

It a very clean bus if you look past the hacks. My guess is that it was a ladder truck or something in the past that didn't see dialy use. The bed, engine bay and sides have holes that all lead to the center of the bus..myabe for out-riggers and ladder supports?
