    That was a pain in the butt! Hard to get to in every way. GOT IT DONE!

    Welded the lower bulk head section to the pedestal base. Bent up a 90° flange to seal the top hat to the bulkhead. Then wrapped the opening on the backside with 1” strap.B3252BE6-CD79-413F-A243-FCCB6E554316

    Half inch flange all the way around for the panel to seal on. 54E3724C-117F-4763-A171-646AE25F926C4B58B633-75CD-43F5-8654-91E82F29182F

    Bent a flange for the bottom of the access panel 303EC69A-BF8B-4AD9-8B37-C5C2AC72AD40E31A6167-B9D4-4DC2-AFD9-67B3F65B3F038BE6E5D1-7E6D-40F7-B406-DF038A63EEC2

    Drilled and tapped a few holes. FD4CC82D-1F40-45AA-8AF6-5A8CCF4A9F12

    Looks great, fits awesome!96F3823D-56BF-4D2D-B541-E6CCB5239D6F764010C9-D149-4697-A5DB-4231671F2DDA63FD1158-B663-4F1C-9E4C-881A4E030625

    We will build it if it comes.

    Damn nice work.

    Question for you. Will that center piece between the wheel wells  that has yet to go in cause a problem getting the tank out?  Or do you need to modify the back of it?  Just curious.

    Scott,  this has to be one of the most ridiculous projects you have ever owned.

    About as functional as a screen door on a submarine.

    Somehow you seem to set trends.  You import a fridolin, now every one has one.

    You resurrect a RV bus conversion, now they are hotter than the sun.

    You should get a Yugo and see if the rest of the world 🌎 drinks the kool-aid!!! 😆

    Can’t wait til people start sectioning their busses after they see yours!

    Keep up the good work Franz, JJ and crew!

    That’s a great start. You can build it anyway you want without limits.

    I used to own this short one but sold it to help finance the mini truck build. ‘60 Original Paint Mango under the black spray paint. It was in much better shape than the truck.

    Riley finished fitting the other half of the cargo floor Friday and drilled holes this morning. AB31808D-B97B-4B66-88E4-9CDEB464BABE2D03CA7C-1197-4CD2-8710-B0968BE89D88
