It is lowered, completed by Dubfab in St. George. Plan is to keep it as is and just drive it. I need to learn how to clean up the exterior a bit but as JJ says, you can't replace virgin paint. I'll post more pics this weekend when I get a chance.

Couple updates;

Intstalled new clutch cable, rear brake lines. Next step, swap out single MC to dual. I love all the scratches and dents on this bus.Image
Pretty solid for a 62 I think. New e-brake cables on order.
Image
New beam tucked nice and tight
Image

Image

Image
Original heat wrap or what's left of it.
Image
Another angle
Image
Some assclown thought a hole in the dash was a cool idea. Humpback seat has no holes and is comfy.
Image

Image

Image
New tranny ready for oil.
Image
Interior shot. Tough to see the green shag bits.

So today the bus had a CLR bath. Not sure if it helped or not but I'm still learning how to save the original paint. I just finished the brake system and new wire harness. Next up is the motor than the windows.

I'm looking for the following, let me know if you're willing to sell or can point me in the right direction.
2- pop out window glass
1- front emblem, non chrome
1- small rear hatch window.
4- commercial hubcaps
