    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.3723B3F7-5227-472E-B4CC-1A75BEFE332E934CBB89-4E04-443A-9ED3-661AF2B60649Dissected all the little bits off the pass side battery tray as well.

    Now starting to dissect the driver side. FC672819-E1C5-4F93-9D81-D1C8496F40EF

    Driver D pillar ended up being about the same as the passenger. Had to cut all that rust out.F6CDC671-37AF-4946-B542-21D1E265BD6E

    Also cut off the bottom of the corner. Battery tray is still fine.AC3BB8F9-107C-4397-8FF1-FDA185BFB23988654141-C832-4746-A348-014A3AC35E25

    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!

    Scraped the trans and got it disassembled. Much cleaner than what it was. The bottom was a mess. 762D1829-AA28-4E0D-BC62-19347D330E73Dad scraped the trans cradle while I was on the transmission. He’s currently getting the bus cradle welded on.887B15AC-DECF-4E0E-8A5B-C3FD714EDE78E884EF0F-DA7D-40D6-AE99-83FB47A7DDEB

    728C781B-5326-4E8B-BE60-CA6F09468F05

    Pulled all the little screw and the last few parts off today. B785CA1C-F6D5-49F3-BF5D-0728BAE49BDA

    Slipped the rollover jig in the dolly. Ready for the blast booth.A8FD43CA-740D-43D6-8A9C-9C3AF99D36C753419D38-DCEF-4D6C-BC2C-048DBE189E6E

    I did get a good bit done yesterday. Cab area mostly blasted. FE61D526-9F86-44EA-898F-4004861B66EC4AC55C5F-0137-4C08-8AC6-7AE5C4933FFA

    Started blasting around a couple areas I suspected would get worse. They did. Lower front window openings. AA98223F-4FE4-4E9F-A3C2-58A96628B1556BA75F6A-5F95-421B-AD1F-427D3815434B1007B030-CB55-47AB-97E2-FBC868B77576

    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. 2653199F-6F80-44BD-AF64-093DFF7D213E

    We will build it if it comes.

    Dad dissected a bit off the front cargo floor, around the lower windshield, and cut around the passenger seat buckle mount.FB5F5E5D-C275-4279-BCCF-EA148BDB7CFFF1DC6E15-E497-45A6-B5F8-D5615C87285AA74AA139-1A59-46F2-91CB-E850D018BD57

    Nice to work out in the ☀️ today! A little more dissecting on Monday then should be back to blasting 😎
