    Care to post a pic or two? I LOVE double cabs!

    There’s usually a thread for everything we build..  even the drive in stuff is in parkway projects… Look around Yber!!!! 😎   Did you follow our trip or Rusty’s maybe in Road trip pics???  😎

    YEAH!  Great bus trips – there’s nothing like ’em.

    As soon as you get behind the wheel – instant GOOD mood!

    WOW – the Salton Sea area has changed BIG time since the 60s & 70s!

    The California and Oregon coasts are PRIME bus tripping!

    Started on driver side batt tray repairs this morning.  Too many pinholes and a 4 inch long rusty gap at the return seam. So out it came, along with the rear fender closing panel.

    Welded and dressed a couple small holes in the pass side batt tray.FCC07EEF-8644-4901-A9F4-0D5A9CCE4A3B

    Back on her feet ready for topside repairs.

    Looking GOOD!!!  Not much metal work left!!!

    Is there a “reinforcing plate” that goes over the notches in the cargo floor where the cargo door latch shafts go in?

    Getting your hatch color matched today!!!!   Last part to fit to the bus…. I polished that hatch before we sent it over to be matched at the paint store…. It had about 100 dents in it…. 😎  Did you stand under it in  hail storm or something?????  😎
