    Been fitting and weld prepped the driver’s side cargo floor structure. Started with the rocker, then moved to the rear top hat and outrigger, and ended with the front top hat and outrigger.

    Today felt like playing with Legos. Putting pieces together to create a finished product. In this case, the structure of a cargo floor!

    Nice work fitting all those bits Riley…👍👍

    Ive been working on the pass b pillar area.

    Lower hinge had 2 broken screws, and there were a few rust holes up higher. Removed a few more inches from the outer b pillar.

    Lower b pillar section fit and burned in. Higher up rusty spots patched up also. E99D6A4E-BE5D-4162-B97D-92726F655C37746E2C62-F14F-49CD-BCBB-18341D756EC3C187B708-E1C1-44C8-8210-B3BB35599C7B

    Outer b pillar and closing panel sections fit as well. BE571BA0-76DE-4350-AE17-1120B00556BEC8C237C6-19DF-4676-889A-180FA7EE9E53BCB1F9E6-2AC8-43C9-8ED7-18B25E60534E

    We will build it if it comes.

    FUCH yeah!!!  This is a fun part of the build..  Lego’s!!!!  I imagine Riley had a good time fitting all that metal… It really helps you understand how a bus is put together and it’s strength!

     

    The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎

    I burned in the rest of your cargo floor structure yesterday. 8DB1E9DA-00F0-45BA-88DB-B11A68295C1059837DB8-F8AC-41E5-9D1F-5E4A1EAA8371363E2BC7-5508-4894-9B8F-4BEDC83B6322

    Started on the pass c pillar inner yesterday. Repair section was just shy of what was needed. Found a section in our stash and extended it a bit. DD2094EB-78C8-4E1E-941C-42513F924506B81624A4-F84D-4954-A18E-293BA785DBD24FB8F876-9D66-4EFA-8145-4ED61EF02E40

    This bus’ metal work is more straight forward than rigging everything to work for a shorty 😜

    HELL YEAH! This bus was ripped down to the good parts FAST – and is now getting built back with that funky green metal just as quick! 👏🏻👏🏻👌🏻 Great work Pat and Riley 🤙🏼

    Yeah, I learned my lesson. No rusty hacked up shit. I was offered another shorty truck that was as equally as bad as mine, probably worse actually. I did the responsible thing and said “no”. Not that I could afford it anyhow.

    I was digging this bus when I was out there. I love the simple 11 window, single color buses.

    Brendan, you are a lucky guy.

    Riley fit the last long side support section, knocked out grinding on the pass side, and is now prepping for new sections around the drivers rear corner area. 3DB1DD9C-93DA-432C-8FA0-E2BDEE65C8FC33502FC4-FC49-4C8C-AEF9-700B903169140EF3C712-4DC3-4CDA-B3A2-02AFB0AE0DBF

    Cut out the driver side battery tray and mudflap earlier today. 3EB58EDA-39EF-4CA8-8BBF-FBBE8C040622Cut part of the driver side D Pillar out as well. Forgot to take a picture, so I’ll snap one and throw it up on Friday. Dissected a chunk of the D pillar off the passenger side. E61F2A1B-6409-4182-97BE-798C75DEA4D8
