Been dissecting bits off around the bus today. Primarily focusing on the rear of the bus though. Cut off the pass side mudflap and bottom corner since they were rusty.Dissected all the little bits off the pass side battery tray as well.
Now starting to dissect the driver side.Riley KParticipantApril 4, 2022 at 3:26 pmPost count: 89
Driver D pillar ended up being about the same as the passenger. Had to cut all that rust out.
Also cut off the bottom of the corner. Battery tray is still fine.brendanmoran1ParticipantApril 4, 2022 at 10:24 pmPost count: 11
Great Monday guys! Thank you for your hard work today! Looks like the center floor is still solid and walkthru section is pretty solid! Can’t wait to see this week’s progression. Thank you “von_hansel” for the Alabama Camper leads!John JonesModeratorApril 5, 2022 at 6:46 amPost count: 11223

Dad and I got the transmission and front beam out this morning.
Im about to start scraping the trans.Riley KParticipantApril 6, 2022 at 3:44 pmPost count: 89
Scraped the trans and got it disassembled. Much cleaner than what it was. The bottom was a mess. Dad scraped the trans cradle while I was on the transmission. He’s currently getting the bus cradle welded on.RustabusParticipantApril 6, 2022 at 8:27 pmPost count: 2856

Finished dolly mods and bolted the body on yesterday.
Pulled all the little screw and the last few parts off today.
Slipped the rollover jig in the dolly. Ready for the blast booth.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesModeratorApril 8, 2022 at 6:22 amPost count: 11223

I did get a good bit done yesterday. Cab area mostly blasted.
Started blasting around a couple areas I suspected would get worse. They did. Lower front window openings.
And the front of the cargo floor. Always hope for the best but reality bites sometimes. Out with the rest of the cargo floor. More metal removal before we get back to blasting.
We will build it if it comes.russParticipantApril 8, 2022 at 9:40 amPost count: 136
good thing for gersons and klassic fab these daysRiley KParticipantApril 8, 2022 at 3:46 pmPost count: 89
Cut and dissected the majority of the floor out today.
Dad dissected a bit off the front cargo floor, around the lower windshield, and cut around the passenger seat buckle mount.
Nice to work out in the ☀️ today! A little more dissecting on Monday then should be back to blasting 😎
