    Good day yesterday…  Lots of mock up…  Got that frame section all welded in, cross brace squared back up and inner valance mocked up…  Then moved to lower A pillars.. I was hoping they may be savable… but no go on that one!!!  They fell apart from the inside out!!!   Got them fit and tacked in and then mocked all that metal back up to make sure everything is in the correct spot, and it is!!!!  😎  I’m gonna take it back apart and burn some shit together!

    Hopefully you have reached the point of cutting less shit off and welding more shit on.

    HAHAHAHAHA YOU WISH!!! 😎  Last time I did this much structural repair to a bus I built a Barn Door.. 😎

    OK… So I have the cab back to solid.. no noodling around… 😎  I haven’t nailed down the A pillars just yet, they are still “nudgeable”.  I thought I might hang some doors before I commit..   I got all the dogleg pieces dissected off.. and am about to cut out that center section of the cab…. Would be sweet to get the center all done today… but that sounds optimistic… 😎

    That would be a huge step getting the center done.

    Are you going with front wheel tubs to, since this is getting dumped?

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Just mini tubs. Nothing that will elevate the front seat

    I got all that center area cut out and dissected.. That was as fun as shoveling sand… 😎  Also spent some arm wrenching time hammering on that bulk head and getting the last 1/2 of bed panel out that was between the bulkhead and the other panel…  I am about to remove the old seat mounts, and then I think I may be DONE cutting out crappy metal..   I need to do some patches on the inner frame filler panels, a little on both sides… but I think I want to dust it off one last time… 😎  Dust everything off, clean clean cab… 😎

    I also put a plan together yesterday on how I want to join the two parts…. 😎  This is going to be insanely short… So we need to slam it too.. tiny ass tires up front and rear really… get it low so maybe it won’t tip over while driving… 😎  The length I am going with is being determined by the amount of metal left and that we have to work with… 😎 I don’t want to ADD anything….  Just put it together, with what I have, as stockish as I can!!!!!
