I had some patch panels cut on the laser at work last week and replaced the flashers this weekend. I drilled the screw holes out to fit 1/4" rivets and smeared some seam sealer, popped them in with that sucker!
Then it was time to remove lights and trim pieces to start sanding. I normally enjoy painting, but working around rivets and the side ribs... man what a PITA!
The screws that held the hood in place were threaded into a plate behind the cowl, which was not captured by anything. Awesome!
Well I popped some Riv-Nuts in there place and I'll fish out those plates later.
That is a really sweet looking bus. I really like those short Carpenter bodies. How long is it? You have already transformed it quite a bit. Look forward to seeing your continuing progress. I hope you will post more photos as you progress.
