I marked the top of the front piece and cut it about 1/4" from the line. I will do a finish cut when the top strap is riveted in place.
Now that the front piece is close to the finished size I'm able to trace out the top strap. The Thomas roof it in three pieces, and since I do not have a piece of steel long enough. I'm going to do my top strap in three pieces also.
This is the middle top strap, the hardest one to do. The rest are straight.
This lines up nice. I was hoping to start welding today but after spending time looking at it all and deciding how to proceed. I figured I should rivet the top strap down first. Then do the finish cut on the front and weld in place. Then cut the side pieces to fit and weld. The problem is my tape does not come in until Wednesday.
Man that 1/4" gap sticks out even from here. I hope no one makes fun of my bus.
Edit: I forgot to add the the windows fit nice and flush to the front piece.
