Thanks Jack, it's been entertaining to say the least.

Thursday afternoon after work, removed top section.

Scraping door, kind of a shame…it was the best piece on this whole bus. It was replaced 1 year and a bit before I pick this thing up…. zero rust.

Rerouted wiring for lights and trailer.


047.jpg
Yesterday, removing what’s left of the door jam/floor “Z” channel at rear.


049.jpg
Tango’s vintage iron is in better shape than this rust bucket… some of you Southern boys and girls are so spoiled with your rust free builds.


050.jpg


054.jpg
Z channel removed, looking for something to weld to…..

056.jpg
Little more flooring removed…few more holes.
058.jpg
Cleaned up wires….

Cross brace still in to hold square until we box in sides/corners and rebuild floor/rear.

Bagged up waiting for today's adventure


Isn't the best way to do a build, I needed it mobile to do the work. That's why the floor wasn't removed at the time. Borrowing the dealer plate to move it for the first couple of years was going to come to an end.

Good to see some custom fab work back there, planning on doing a double door on mine. I desperately need a second door to continue. Yours wouldn't work due to the BB taper. What will your final door be?

Barn doors like a transport trailer.

They will open backwards compared to a normal semi....so you exit the pass. side like up front.
