    Her first life was spent in Central America until 1978 then was driven to Missouri where it and its owner followed the grateful dead.

     

    Our Panama Delivered Westies lived very similar lives. Mine followed the Dead with “Sunshine” for the LSD painted on the roof, “We love you Jerry” painted on the rear hatch belt line, and “Keep on Trucking” logo painted on the rear quarter panel where a deluxe would have a 4th window. Also, mine lived in the great lakes region in the 70s.

    Did you ever find a fridge for this bus? I’m still looking for one for you.

    Super pumped to see this bus painted!

    Started on pinhole repairs along the pass side rain gutter this morning.

    Bunch along the lower edge of the roof and a few in the gutter lip. 97DD336A-F984-40E2-811F-07B073B38555B4E78C53-7E66-4B45-8103-BCCBB25F9C62

    Straightening out and bent areas. Good all the way up to the front pass door. 4BBEB821-FD3F-4FCF-8515-BA25659161225EB52E8B-22B4-45D8-B1D7-6FE129B7582C

    Riley is sanding the entire roof prepping for bodywork/primer.D6686DA1-18E0-4409-84B1-ABC3CD09C52C4593B1D5-816A-42AB-8C2C-C851AA131C31

    Above the pass door was bad! Forgot a pic before I cut it out. C60CE648-04F9-4C9A-BDC2-20574CA2F872

    Fabed a new section. Fit and tacked in. 7C6A683C-46ED-4753-8BC9-C362C860554591143D25-28C5-49BA-A549-9EAD2B2A0C5F640D4B64-6375-4798-BD04-5ABCFBBF9061

    Finished the repair above pass door and straightened several bent spots around the gutter yesterday. 4F4D9522-4DB1-44EE-9B8E-EB13CD42478825B77AFF-DA27-410F-BAC9-C21A681E197B844E5312-6130-4CF5-8398-A4FE0AFF938D

    Riley finished sanding the roof and helped with some pin work to finish out our day. 313D8C01-9F8B-42C1-B962-BC22A810FAB2521E7B1F-180A-4EEF-902A-BDB05525392C

    This dent was deep! I’m on the fourth round of  pins this morning. One more round should do it. DA2E7010-C5AA-40E0-BD00-2BA45A56EA9E1DCDF966-2099-48FC-8DBD-B6D68EF0851561B72115-0EDA-44D3-B19D-902D36B6BC8CE55C19B0-AE99-4C42-9FDD-992DCDFCD985

    Pats about got this roof ready to prime!!! RTP!!! 😎  a couple good coats of poly.. give us something to sand.. 😎 He just found a few more pin holes in the gutter he is welding up now!!!  😎

    After we get the roof polied.. I think we will get the first primed area spotted and reprimed…   The only area not worked would be from B to D pillars above the belt line, below the gutter, apron, engine lid and rear hatch to look over..  I noticed the rear hatch has reflectors, stay??  weld up the screw holes??  can always redrill if you want them…   Engine lid is a little haggard but usable..

    Panama Red is so close to having a fresh new look… 😎  😎  😎

    After finishing pin work on the roof I spent the rest of Tuesday and a good chunk of yesterday getting it body worked.

    Riley helped with masking  before we knocked out the primer session yesterday evening. B1DECD26-EDD7-4C9B-9897-C012B8DCD12B0D714188-9060-4CC4-9080-7BA7247645D15ABABE1C-17D2-478F-B32F-B1979A3AE4003386A8F1-3824-4ADC-B2D2-83D183CB9B6EFE965A4C-1AE9-45E8-8BEE-A05A0104ED60

    Sorry for the delayed update…nothing exciting just lots of sanding and body work.

    Thursday I finished all bodywork below the belt line and detail sanded all the nooks and crannies.

    Yesterday JJ and I body worked and sanded from the rain gutters down to the belt line and knocked out the final primer session. EB180659-30CB-42F9-905C-58370525F354A2F0C86A-96F3-4C07-958B-12C44D0045FB8B82395B-0F05-4B49-9C8C-F0915E3DAD6558308FED-2535-491E-96EB-2770CFC615BA8FE639D5-7253-4EB2-A3F4-9DA72581A4BD
