    Gentle wash with dish soap got rid of the oxidation and moss.

    It needs some crl cleaning to get the mineral build up off.

    Tr3 is bad for paint. Puts a bad residue on the outside of the paint. Turns chalky eventually. Get some 3m polishing compound and hand buff it. Little water mixed in to help it go on smooth. That’s what I did on the hornbecker.

    I told JJ I didn’t want my bus buffed. I was replacing my rocker and stopped grinding welds, but the whiz continued even when I stopped grinding. Puzzled, I stood up and wondered where the noise was coming from. That’s when I saw JJ with a big ol smile on his facing buffing the opposite corner from where I was working. Sneaky fucker;) hahaha love the paint on my bus! Glad he buffed my paint.

    Pulled the pop out windows first thing last night. Only had to drill out 6 screws.

    The cargo floor needed repair sections along the long side and the cargo door side. When I found the front center section, top hat, and some of the bulk head were all cancered up, that pushed us to do the whole cargo floor….😳😳😳

    Started chopping about midnight. Cut all the major junk out in, around and under the cargo area.

    Major yuck above front center section…🤢🤢3BB3E064-64C4-485A-A233-9B7CB1D85375551EB308-D108-43F7-9632-8D945B8DFF5C

    All off the missing bits have already been ordered…😎😎97587469-541E-42B0-96EC-466DEE82C469

    Good power wash session today. I was careful. Eviction notice served to all prior inhabitants.

    Front floor went under the knife last night. Like the cargo floor it needed both L&R sections, that along with the holes left from a long gone gas heater and a couple cancer spots best choice was a whole floor replacement.DF296BC0-7876-44DB-A70A-09C2F0B6B04C6D75CF56-72DA-481C-8244-ACB0330F487F

    Heat tube sections need to be removed for a complete front floor job.

    Both dogleg lips and driver a pillar will need couple small patches.

    Soaked the e-brake handle mech and pivot down with some sweet sauce. Hopefully we won’t need to cut the pivot pin…🤞🤞🤞132359D7-EE04-48E6-97EF-BB152C277B80

    Good day blasting and spraying epoxy sealer. Ready for new metal.

    This bus is just right… You get all the solid’ness of new metal with well worn patina.

    The velvet green fade is outstanding.
