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.

So after a frustrating week of taping and masking, then redoing half of the job over.... I made some visible progress!

I sprayed the bus with Rustoleum Almond reduced with acetone. I only had paint for one and about a half coats, but it was good coverage. So I'm happy for now.

I have to drive the bus into work tomorrow to dispose of the seat cushion and scrap the seat frame, because we are using the bus this weekend to haul the dirtbikes to the cabin









Plus.... We got it tagged as an RV today!!!!

I'm stoked !

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.
