this one is also at a great point… to either take a break till metal gets here… Or.. we could just push it in the abrasive cleaning booth and continue making it naked…. 😎Pat KKeymasterNovember 15, 2018 at 8:13 amPost count: 805
Knocked out a couple of small patches yesterday morning, both in the rear of the cab.
Weird spot to rust from the outside. While Cole was here he said their DC stacks leaves along the back of the cab since they put their hoops & canvas on.
We will build it if it comes.mdubgParticipantNovember 15, 2018 at 11:29 amPost count: 203
Build up has already begun! You guys are a machine. Killing it!
The bus came with a funky, custom, low profile canvas cover. It could have trapped leaves for sure. It also had a fabric sound deadening in the cabin that looked like it trapped a bit of condensation.
Keep up the amazing work and updates!John JonesKeymasterNovember 16, 2018 at 7:16 amPost count: 4591

Thanks to Gerson for rocking the delivery time on this metal!mdubgParticipantNovember 20, 2018 at 10:07 amPost count: 203
Amazing delivery timing!
<p style=”text-align: left;”>It’s been a couple weeks and I’m still trying to get around to sending my engine to GJ. I’m in LBC this week, but I’ll get it sorted when I’m back in Texas next week.</p>
With the speed you all are moving, I’m going to have to get off my ass and send the rest of the labeled parts from my disassembly soon.
Thanks for the updates!Pat KKeymasterNovember 20, 2018 at 10:58 amPost count: 805
Just sorted through all of your funky green metal. Missing a ew pieces yet, but we have plenty to get started.
We will build it if it comes.JWDIIParticipantNovember 20, 2018 at 12:28 pmPost count: 368
A nice solid DC is not far away now. What can GREEN do for you? You all make this look easy.mdubgParticipantNovember 20, 2018 at 5:19 pmPost count: 203
Awesome! I always love the photos of the funky green laid out and ready for install.VwfoolParticipantNovember 20, 2018 at 7:20 pmPost count: 211
Odd question but can you measure the forward most part of the bed floor you ordered from Gerson. I am wanting to know how long it is from the cab wall towards the back. I am hoping those will work for my little turd project. You can see they pop riveted flimsy steel to connect the front and rear body panels.
Sorry about hijacking your thread. Back to a real truck…….
