    I think it’s the same truck… that’s the first and only dealership at the time in Canada. And I’m assuming they only brought one sc over to that dealer on the first shipment. Got confirmation from Patrick that our sc is the oldest bus vin on that first Canada shipment. Pretty cool.

    Any word on the lever shocks? Also, have you seen the MarkL package? Just trying to see when this will be finished so I can come grab it! Psyched

    Yeah the package arrived. No word on the lever shocks. I’ll call and find out.

    According to my tracking number those lever shocks were delivered on the 23rd of dec, might be worth calling and seeing what’s up franz

    I’m trying to plan a time to come fly out and drive this to KB’s. Any time that is better for you guys?

    also, are there interior panels with the truck? It would’ve had door and kick panels correct? Just no roof panel?

    We’ll see how it goes Cole. This is a tough project. I would guess end of the month. Working on it today.

    The gas tank is a truck only item. Notice the outlet location is closer to rocker for petcock access.

    I spread a bunch of JB weld on rust pits like bondo. It’s more resistant to fuel.

    Gas tank is ready for paint.

    Going to do assy stuff today. Rebuild the petcock, assemble the rechromed door handle, and install windshield wipers.

    Gas tank painted. & beautiful. Door handles installed, then found a broken latch mech, removed it, and installed a new spring in the mech to keep the passenger door from self locking.

    Some other small stuff too. Doug delivered the seat with correctly done padding and covers.

    Panel kit looks good. Paint is a little on the shiny side.
