Hey Mike. I just installed the rear safari tabs. Looks like you modified them. Am I missing something here? They appear to be too long.

I'm going to cut them down if you are cool with that?

Fixed. I even sanded/polished them.

We've done all we can. I'm tired. All of the doors open, close, latch, and have seals.

Peet Installed pop outs, wrapped and boxed painted parts today.

Waiting on axle tubes and the stationary side/door glass.

Mikes going to be here Wednesday night

I get the feeling this ain't going to be one of those that just disappears unfinished...

Come too far for that! [-X [-X

Hopefully, Mike will post up some pics of the remainder of the build..!

Mike mentioned having KCW build him an engine. Maybe we can bring the whole bus back for engine install and drive-ability finalization. :-k

Looking damn nice. =D>

Axle tubes arrived and I made short work of getting them painted. In the sun baking right now. JJ is putting the final shine on.

Mike Arrived late Thursday night. I bolted the transaxle in Friday morning. Let it down off of the lift, and on it's own suspension for the first time. Then we pushed it into the trailer.

Thank you Mike. Glad that we could play a part in its resurrection. Sorry for all of the rubbing compound in the cracks. Smile ...But I'm sure you'll get it detailed nice. Don't be afraid to use a striping brush for touch-ups. If you have any questions or anything, post up here, and we are sure to see it.

Stellar body and door fits buffed to the moon.
