    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 ๐Ÿ˜†

    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,ย will take a lot of new metal for ย just a 60 tho.

    Like I said, first time for me for complete doglegs. Try that next time ๐Ÿ™‚

    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.

    A little progress this week ๐Ÿ™‚

    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 ๐Ÿ™„ย  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 ๐Ÿ™„

    Yes I’m ignoring the roof for now, getting the lower stuff back in place. It will need some shrinking and bending, and another hole closed up. ๐Ÿ™„

    Snowing today, can’t go to real work ๐Ÿ˜€ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Got the left C pillar and hinge pocket rebuilt yesterday, short rocker and cargo rocker burned in ๐Ÿ˜€ย Doing lower nose today, front floor next ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’ve been slathering Rust Bullet in the body cavities over my marginal sandblasting for a little protection.

    Things are looking up for this poor bus!

    I’m going to leave the little hacked in crooked gangsta windows in it Bubba, even though I really like panels. That means I get to chop up a og high hinge panel door ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Got the lower nose in yesterday, more Rust Bullet slopped on in the nose cavity, short upper nose fitted and coated on backside

    Dunno why I bought the 60 single either… softie for a transporter in need I guess. That Binz conversion idea is a bad one, too many parts to fab that KF don’t make, Binz’s are kinda ugly I think, compared to a factory dc, and from what I’ve seen those trucks are a freaking hack from the factory. I was thinking custom camper on the back, but it’s waay on the back burner, this thread is about ddwt’s ๐Ÿ˜†

    I finished stripping the cadaver to the bone and stuck it on the rack, 4 wheeled dolly that works better on 3. There are welds that need to be finished that I could not get to any other way, and a big hole under the driver’s seat pedestal that couldn’t get fixed without the beam coming out. The suspension and trans need a good cleaning and there is lots of bare metal down there now that needs protection. Didn’t want to do it but knew it had to be done. I just added 6 months of time to this project.ย Drive train looks pretty good for 59 years old. Looks like og shocks on the rear, coil overs on the front ๐Ÿ™„ย to compensate for the torsion bar sticking out, I don’t think this rig saw too many miles.

    I think it was a smart idea to buy it. Binz would be sick. The camper idea is cool find a old aluminum camper and modify to fit that would be sweet. U seen one at BBB last year it was slammed and it was bad to the bone ghetto ride. CmonBBB
