Mikes 59 DELUXE *suspension glass and doors*

Postby john jones » Fri May 27, 2016 6:34 am

Another cool bus showed up last weekend.. It is here for body, paint and some assy... It came from NorCal where it was metal worked.. Guy did a NICE job on it...

Started on it yesterday... Hanging parts.. Front door fits need some attention.. but everything else is looking pretty good.. I'm gonna align those doors in a few minutes..

Shit's looking good... We got all the trim on and holes drilled rocker spears fit and all... Had to trim a bunch of ends.. but got it... Also rounded up the right combination of seat bolts and clamps to hold rear seat down, and welded down two more flat pieces on the floor for the middle seat middle seat legs... anyway..

All is well.. About to start doing some body work... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ I can't figure out pics today.. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

They warped everything... Got it too hot... and when there were braces involved, you can see em... cause it had lines on the outside where it stayed cool.... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)
