Jrod and Greg are piling up Canadian made repop bus metal =D>

Said these outriggers took them a little over an hour to bend up (there's one more set missing here)

Shit is turning out super crispy! \:D/ some guys might ask why the fuck are these guys copying green metal when it's not that expensive?? This stuff might be easy for you guys to get but up in the great white tundra here across the line a 30$ US outrigger equates to around 60$ Canadian once exchange, shipping and taxes.....X6 to a bus....add some top hats, I beams, inner rockers, centre braces etc...... Up well over a thousand bux ](*,) ](*,)
That is if you can even get it!!

We have half a dozen busses local that need all this shit so it just makes sence to make some of the less complex parts (not getting into stamped shit) In-house (and it works out really good for me Smile )

Probably too soon to throw this out there but if there are any fellow Canucks that need this kinda stuff and don't want to ship across boarder hit us up. Wink

Orange Red? Remember the super clean Wolfsburg West Pan Half Repops? That color was a clear sign you got the good stuff... I'd re-up that color.

Maple leaf is a terrific marketing idea... Roll it!

Awesome!!! Satin coat is the way to go! you can leave that shit outside in the rain or snow for years and the only rust you will get is at the cut edge. Just takes a little extra heat to burn through or even better, grind off the satin coat from weld areas as you would with paint for nice clean welds. I used to work in a metal fab shop and we used satin coat for all our painted sheetmetal parts. I made as much as I could for my bus also to save $$$

Quick little distraction....back when we dragged home the beat down 55 single we snagged a fjord 58 rag body. It had sat in the dirt for many years with no pan so bottom was fackered, had no title. Got cut up to save others :-& sold roof clip to a local guy Jason (says he can't get registered here still??) with a 58 sedan in same color. Last nights holy church of VW session was go time.

I had the clip all trimmed up ready to go to save time....we decided to splice it real close to the edge the aluminum rails cover the butt weld. This gave us the flange of the spot welded stamped inner panel (where captive nuts live) to burn into. Took longer to creep up on the final cut when we were trimming but was well worth the effort \:D/

Check out the snake skin that was up behind the rear view mirror!

Lots of measuring lots of micro trimming!

3 forward inner braces located and burned in super factory like Wink

FITS TITTIES!!

Killer session!!!! couple more hours to complete rear buttweld and metal finish it. Really happy with way it's turned out so far \:D/ sounds like we gonna be doing some rust repair and rear quarter graft to repair some old accident damage in the near future too :-&

don't think you needed to worry about the rails covering the weld, that shit is invisible!
