    Metal work done!!!

    That was a chore getting the bottom side finished!

    Started at 1am last night, flipped her back up right about an hour ago.

    First up was straightening the lower valance lip. Much better!F353375B-21B3-4872-8124-C6F69AF79FC8

    Next was fitting the new pedal pan. Only had to make a couple of tweaks to get it on. 93AC8FA6-FB0F-49CC-8683-269367D21A6C21F2ED4A-1D50-4AD9-817C-B2B5214CDF05

    Noticed a broken bolt in one of the pedal pan valance mounts. I was able to drill and tap it. No invasive surgery required!!F061298C-FB41-4318-875F-7FD9A30DD4F37C001244-09C8-48EF-B5EF-F554440AD59C

    All 4 of the  pedal pan side mounts in the frame were stripped.  Welded nuts to the back sides. Forgot a welded pic…oops…CE6D7C1F-0A1A-45AE-8FC4-658207E80E41B10445EA-5144-459E-84E6-EEF988C083A30F566735-5EE7-460E-BF48-8C6ECC3FA4B4

    Fits great!!4A78BD3A-DEEE-48CC-803C-26DB61A15AFF80D3273E-0EAA-4636-A8E3-815C023C1653DA302745-4B15-4429-8D7D-0FB15A83229D

    Pass inner valance needed 2 patches.D08A07B8-1F97-433B-82B7-014BE14E1128

    Drivers side a pillar and inner valance also needed patches.6D7AE8BE-DF5F-4719-A73A-2D948224E94605594EFC-4481-4500-9AF5-DA93E0C7473B

    Finished welding the jack points, bulkhead and seat pedestal to the front center section, trimmed the excess off of the drivers side rocker lower lip, and lots of misc finish grinding. 71F2D7D9-47C5-4D86-B8AB-62B611CE058A7E4BF457-25AB-41D2-B398-41C03CC6C07F

    Last repair!!!! Smashed up rear cargo floor support. Looks like it landed on a big ol’rock at some point. A6B0AC2A-353B-405C-A867-53BC3CCA7A6B23044D75-698F-4115-BB4D-076788512A74ED01F983-94CF-438C-8167-4FA27C3E29AA

    Chopped the cap out. Sliced the smashed section to hammer it straight. E4BB988B-6189-4956-A05D-4916FB2DDEAE

    Welded the support back together. Fabed a new cap, burned it all together, and dressed it up all purty like. 1C54DA5B-10CF-451E-9C39-87C3DE37E173D4997512-B262-4016-84CB-8CE5F11EDF9EB9F0D116-6407-4291-B7B9-958C0371EAE8

    Ready for a bottom side cleanup in the blast booth. 884A4D6F-91EB-4A4D-BB07-7EAAEEC93272

    Lots of grinder and metal dust after a double shift.01A4517B-FE5D-4777-8317-B73511DB632A

    Hell yeah, 4 weeks ago this rolled off the trailer in as-found condition.

    Now it has new floors, rockers, and all the other normal bus rust repairs.

    Sand blasting is going on. Carefully masked to save the OG paint around the edges and the engine bay.

    Our blast booth makes it easy to do things the way we like!

    That single looks clean! ’56-’57?

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.
