    When I did some exploratory work on that patch on the drivers side long panel, the filler was 3/4 of an inch deep.  That previous patch was sloppy work, but the filler was overkill.

    Just finished stripping the shell. Still need to pull the cargo door, and a few other small bits, before we roll it into the blast booth Monday morning. CE4FC436-8920-4471-94DF-027008405E8348B963D6-6CB4-40FA-B7F1-246099E7CE10

    We will build it if it comes.

    Nice work Pat!  From the pics, it looks pretty good under all that paint and fill.  How’s it look up close?

    It’s not too bad! 5F2643C0-EC3D-4F42-BEB3-0C32A10B6F6B72B8F590-E8F2-4276-8AAB-E4FD5101BAC2

     

    Funny that the lights look like they the later style, because a 1960 would have the lower small lights. I wonder if the corners are from a different truck… 🤔

    Looks like something maybe kissed it over by the side door. 😙

    Will, thanks for the close ups!  I had no idea that there were a bunch of patches on the bus.  Looks ok, few spots to cut out, but lots of good metal.

    From looking at the inside of the rear corners, I knew the they were off a later truck, because they had the larger tail lights with the holes welded up.  It wasn’t until I dropped it off that Franz pointed out that the current hole location might be a bit high for a ’60.

    Watching all the work on my DC, got me jonesing (no pun intended) to turn a wrench.  Started a bike project.  I decided to run all the lines and cables down the handlebars of my Harley.  I’m adding 14″ apes with chrome controls.  I don’t want any external lines, so I’m putting on an internal throttle and a hydraulic clutch.

    So far, the hydraulic clutch is installed, not yet plumbed.kPAx6VUlRdCaoU2yOnFcfAHVKWxOrCRlyCbet7FYxLwwL3kDw7o2SbKB5Ry06%N%%A

    Pulled the tank to get access to the wires and throttle cable.  Once I get the bars delivered, I can measure how much I need to extend everything.

    Last of the bits pulled from the shell.

    Chris started stripping the front floor. Looks like it was rusty and they buried it in bondo them rinolined over it.

    Left and right sections will need replacement maybe the whole floor. We’ll see after blasting. 3950EE41-01A0-4F8B-9F3B-4D10F2AF0763BA351486-E43C-4F6A-A3EF-D9FEDD679B51

    I’m glad I brought my truck to the right shop!  When you are done, I’ll know it was done right, with the pics to prove. No more cover-ups.  Loving the updates!

    Best kind of advertising ever! Congrats JJ/KCW, and congrats to you Mike for a stunning DC in the making. I love watching the updates.

    Hold up….so you’re saying that’s not a legit repair technique?  The broke high school version of myself respectfully disagrees. 🙂
