Re: new member 1965 chevy

well i didnt get them all on but i think grinding on the bus is easier than posting pics the bus ass pics shows the job done after the door was deleted the hinges and handles were pulled and filled the door was welded shut and the cracks filled the mlower and upper windows were filled with metal panels and bondoed into a conglomeration which made the bus ass! in still not sure what to do here as there4 is some rust to contend to im seeing checker plate a 3by8foot sheet would do nicely how much do you think that is? some shots of the inside with the new floor the control panel beside the seat is a old road sign i put a circular design on it with the wire wheel and clearcoated it same with the piece on the dash thats the front grill stripped and primed it too had 34896 coats of paint on it you can have that seat shortbus i think you will recognise it the compartment is for the propane it was plywood and rotten i used old roofing panels and the grill that was over the heater next to the seat to vent the tanks recycle! getting close to finishing the final stripping but alas it rains again today this weather is quite odd this spring holding up progress......carry on converting! timbuk

Re: new member 1965 chevy

Finaly I got some time to look at your pictures at home. I cant see pictures at work that are on photobucket due to network restrictions, and at home dont have to much time for surfing, need to work on the bus.
How many layers of paint was on that bus? Looks like somebody was very busy with a angle grinder
I'm planing on painting ours in the next couple of weeks.
