Got my order of bullet hinges in and had to try them out. I got he access doors for the fuel tanks and stabilizer jacks together and primed. I still have to punch the holes for the cam locks. I'll o that later when I put some rubber cushions in to keep them from rattling (I hate rattles).
Here's the propane tank assess door. I still have to frame in the paddle latch when I get them. Primed to keep the rust down.
Here's the cover for the Central AC unit I'm making from a window unit. This panel will be screwed in place instead of a hinge since it will not be gotten into very often.
I've never liked the radiator grill for several reasons. One, it had broken due to vibration and rattles excessively. Two, the headlight panels were mounted to it and because it broke, the headlights would shake. Three, the old grill required you take 4 screws loose to open the grill to access the radiator fill neck. I have another place to top off the radiator but my grill only requires 2 screws and it tilts out. Four, there seems to be a common problem with cooling for many who have these FE buses. While mine never did on the 1800 mile trip home from TX, I thought while redesigning this grill, why not get a lot of air flow in the process.
Here's a pic with everything removed and the radiator and after cooler freshly painted with some flat black (you'll understand why when you see the grill):
Installed the mounting bracket. The headlight mounts bolt to this bracket and are very solidly mounted:
With the grill mounted. It can be easily removed if need be as the bullet hinges are both facing the same way. I reused the letters from the old grill. When the pain seasons well, I'm going to fill them with silicone from the back side to tie them into the mesh of the expanded metal:
