Noticed the bulkhead was white like the exterior? Thought they were all in primer? Has this been painted or is it another anomaly!! Never seen a bench Panel without upper vents!!! 🙂FranzKeymasterMarch 14, 2018 at 8:34 amPost count: 1644
Brushed white paint on the bulkhead and rear luggage shelt. Original camper mod? I’m not sure.
The headliner looked like a riviera type. I don’t know my camper conversions well enough to say what this one is for sure. Maybe someone else can clarify?Pat KKeymasterMarch 14, 2018 at 6:19 pmPost count: 470
Finished tear down today. Stripped roof and nose both are super nice and straight. Have not found any body filler yet.
We will build it if it comes.PeteParticipantMarch 14, 2018 at 6:37 pmPost count: 533
Are any surprises expected on this one? It looks really solid.Pat KKeymasterMarch 15, 2018 at 6:39 pmPost count: 470
^^ No surprises yet…..but…the blast booth will tell all.
Finished stripping outside of shell to day.
Few areas that will need some rust repair. Lower dog legs.
Long side outer rocker. Inner rocker to be determined.
Started dissecting cargo door rocker. Will need a new rear pass jack point, a section of cargo floor, inner/outer rocker, lower pass side rear rocker, top hat section, and some other patches in the front wheel well area.
Time for a cold one.
We will build it if it comes.1965BusParticipantMarch 16, 2018 at 1:02 pmPost count: 11

So, I was joking about this going back into a Panel! Bob, what are Your plans for this restoration???!!!?!?!! 🙂ryans65ParticipantMarch 18, 2018 at 7:06 pmPost count: 71
When you strip a bus like what is your tool of choice? Obviously a wizz wheel of some sort but what diameter discs and grit are you using?Pat KKeymasterMarch 19, 2018 at 8:53 amPost count: 470
I like the 7″ angle sander with 8″36 grit paper. Low speed and lean into pretty good. High speed will wear out the paper really fast and heat up the panel.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterMarch 26, 2018 at 7:22 amPost count: 3469
time to get this rig stripped the rest of the way and move into some metal work! 😎
