    Kicked ass on tin repairs/mods/fits last night for the Goodrich bus motor.

    All that’s left is to finish up the Double barrel draft tube, and vent to the 1/2 side valve cover.F6F79631-01CB-469D-B305-DA5B8ECEAF3C2BD10D6B-D75F-4324-93BF-33811D0E606497717A7A-3DFD-4FA8-BC00-66FA2B17D84C

    We will build it if it comes.

    Such a great build. I love watching this project.

    Clara panels were waiting for me when I arrived tonight. Two roof panel sets and one kick panel set. I’m guessing the extra set is for the your other ‘58?82E0B87B-604B-4491-BACF-CC7634BF7D3BThese roof panels are always a pain, but I got them in with no mods/damage. WOOHOO!!D0F9BFD1-7552-4E4A-ACDF-278821BF4D2C<noscript>D0F9BFD1-7552-4E4A-ACDF-278821BF4D2C</noscript>

    Question for Pat- how in the heck did you get these roof panels in with the wood bows in place? I am struggling getting Clara’s panels in with the wood from my Westy in place. I tried soap on the edges to try to make them move smoothly in the grooves, but man they are a PITA.

    The wood bows were not in my way at all.

    I use a block of wood laid up against the rear edge of the panel and tap it in slowly and EVENLY with a hammer.

    It helps to push up in the center of the panel to help it bow as it gets tapped in.

    Never have used any “lube” to make it slide easier.

    We will build it if it comes.

    The fridge that came with this bus does not fit in the cabinet. So we’re going to use the door and fake the funk on the rest.

    Started by bead rolling the panels to add some rigidity. 6540EF94-267B-4E02-A293-7830781B7CBA30A998E0-912F-41CB-8238-71B1094AE5A2F75E58BF-9BF9-4690-BF31-75CB537D43CE

    Top and bottom.FE2F316E-96DF-4543-A638-9D2EEA948B40

    Sides and back.2F1D0AD2-0E36-4C39-8C4B-90EFD9387E25

    Coming together. A5A9DEA5-6E19-4DA6-BBFF-ED5477C70BE8914DAB48-FF8B-4CB0-9BD0-730621A760CA74678626-651E-4381-A589-4A0962ADDCB7

    That fridge is awesome!  Wood is 100x harder to work with than metal, no welding wood back together and the whole interior looks so fresh.

    Good job!
