Shit our 55 sc has that one beat in the ratfucked contest ?John JonesModeratorDecember 18, 2017 at 7:28 amPost count: 8119
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: 702
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 JonesModeratorDecember 18, 2017 at 8:13 amPost count: 8119
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: 702
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: 702
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 JonesModeratorDecember 21, 2017 at 8:32 amPost count: 8119
Looking good Jeff!!!!!! You still holding that roof up in there? 😉 😉mtnbusParticipantDecember 21, 2017 at 9:09 amPost count: 1453
Hell Yes ! Lots of work getting done on that beauty !volksaddictParticipantDecember 21, 2017 at 9:16 amPost count: 702
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. 🙄
Snowing today, can’t go to real work 😀 😀 😀volksaddictParticipantDecember 22, 2017 at 9:22 amPost count: 702
Got the left C pillar and hinge pocket rebuilt yesterday, short rocker and cargo rocker burned in 😀 Doing lower nose today, front floor next 😀 😀
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!

This bus is one of the coolest! Whats the plan with those windows ?volksaddictParticipantDecember 23, 2017 at 7:34 amPost count: 702
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 😮
Got the lower nose in yesterday, more Rust Bullet slopped on in the nose cavity, short upper nose fitted and coated on backsideJohn JonesModeratorDecember 23, 2017 at 10:47 amPost count: 8119
