Sammy and Sadie are welcome anytime!
My roof is looking Great! if you Ignore all the sticks holding the bow in that tweaked skin, 😳 what a hot mess. More green metal came in this week so I’m back on the lower side, I’ll go back to the roof when I feel like taking a beating 😡John JonesKeymasterDecember 15, 2017 at 8:12 amPost count: 7102

Dog leg going in, C pillar going out. Rocker today 🙂
This is the first bus I’ve done complete doglegs on. I thought they would be hard to remove, clean up and align the new. They come out fast, clean up nice and have lots of points to align them properly. I have spent way too much time in the past repairing doglegs! They are always full of hidden rust anyway.
Wife said yesterday “this bus is going to be all green soon” 😀mtnbusParticipantDecember 17, 2017 at 8:26 amPost count: 1233

This thing is so fucked, it needs a new everything from the cab back, and a lot in front too. After I pulled the bed and floor off by hand I decided that the 58 was an easier project 😆volksaddictParticipantDecember 17, 2017 at 9:30 amPost count: 647

It’s got a good looking side gate!JbParticipantDecember 17, 2017 at 9:19 pmPost count: 639
Shit our 55 sc has that one beat in the ratfucked contest ?John JonesKeymasterDecember 18, 2017 at 7:28 amPost count: 7102
More green metal in? Jeff… You put the inner dog leg in first and then the outer? or outer first?volksaddictParticipantDecember 18, 2017 at 8:00 amPost count: 647
Inside first, why would anyone do it opposite?
The side gate is rotted out on the bottom. Like everything on that single.
If it was a 55 it would be a great project, will take a lot of new metal for just a 60 tho.John JonesKeymasterDecember 18, 2017 at 8:13 amPost count: 7102
The last few I have done.. I did the outer skin first… Then I can get those welds on the B pillar at the top of the skin… I set each end.. and weld it.. Get the top of the outer welded to the B and then put the inner in,,,, make sence? I’ve done em all kinds of ways…volksaddictParticipantDecember 18, 2017 at 8:21 amPost count: 647
Like I said, first time for me for complete doglegs. Try that next time 🙂
There is a whole order on what comes first when you are doing that much new metal. It can go smooth or not depending on the order of installation.volksaddictParticipantDecember 21, 2017 at 7:31 amPost count: 647
A little progress this week 🙂
WW rockers I had in stock. I like the e coat on their metal but it doesn’t go inside the rockers so not much use there 🙄 Wish they would ship them in 2 pieces so they can be installed right.
C pillar and short rocker came out nice, cargo door should fit better now. I fucked up and didn’t buy the long C pillar for the other side, wasting time rebuilding that one now 🙄John JonesKeymasterDecember 21, 2017 at 8:32 amPost count: 7102
Looking good Jeff!!!!!! You still holding that roof up in there? 😉 😉mtnbusParticipantDecember 21, 2017 at 9:09 amPost count: 1233
Hell Yes ! Lots of work getting done on that beauty !
