    Got that rear center section SUPER close to coming out. Yesterday afternoon I got about 2/3 of it cut out. Today I dissected a few strips that were stuck to the top hat then started to cut that final third of the rear center section out. Gonna get that area all cleaned up soon!

    Finished burning in the cargo rocker yesterday. FF60CBD6-5DE9-4D52-BCBB-49EAB7F44723

    Dissected the heat tube in the cab also. Noticed it was brazed in, not welded like factory. D0EFAD2C-8117-48F3-8652-814384207BD8

    Found a tag on the back side. F64FEE0D-F073-4A7F-9DE0-4C70BF98625F

    More brazing work. On the headlight bucket to inner valance this time. Someone’s been up in here way back in the day is my guess. 8CBD10E1-FC21-4F71-82E2-54875E08A356

    Today I got the passenger side floor close to being ready to be welded in. Had to get it all marked this morning before drilling a TON of holes. 0CD6943D-F7EB-497F-99DC-D25DE971B113ED99C644-3DDE-49B7-83B1-E9971C2D8177FF2987F7-F2F1-4A4F-A4A6-8C0BE43259E2
    Got it set in the bus. Needs a few more holes drilled in it before it’s ready to be welded in.
