My log-ins have timed out a few times while I try to prepare or neaten up a long post. I find if I occasionally hit "Preview," even if I'm not ready to look the post over, it seems to drop another quarter in the parking meter . . . . .

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Wow doesn't even come close to describing my thoughts on your bus! You are doing an outstanding job. I happened to pick up a 46 Chevy Superior last summer for some parts. The body was way to rusty to even imagine resurrecting again, so I got any usable parts off and sent the rest to China. One item I did score was the back bumper that has the Superior stamped into it. Don't know if you have one or even if you are interested, but it would be for sale.

Jack, you are talented in so many ways. I again am so jealous that you can weld and am watching every step of your posts.

Shadoll, I love melting metal together--its like playing with the sun.. Watch Craigs List for a mig welder (probably not less than 125 amps), get the seller to show you it works and start practicing! Guess you'll have to get your electricity problem solved first but still no big deal

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

The design is amazing and way more complicated than I would even think of trying to build, yet I am sure it will work. That said, I am curious about the motor taking up part of the step well. Any reason why you didn't notch the rear portion of the well to recess the motor out of the way? Longer J shaped arms would of course be needed to make that work, and maybe that won't fit. Just wanted to know.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Lars, thanks for the pic. The '46 body still closely resembles the '35 body. I appreciate your offer to take some more pics and make a few measurements--that will give me a better idea of how your bumper would fit on my bus. Thanks again, Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hey Lars --- Much cooler bumper on yours. And chrome no less! Is yours a three piece unit or one continuous piece (mine is 3).
