Roger the split tubing to add some rigidity. The sheetmetal shop did a great job matching the template. And I will be using most of the torpedo belt that was original to the bus. One row all along where the new & old sheet metal come together and another down low. It will be shorter than it had been with none behind the wheel opening this time around.
How about you Jack? Are the rub rails going back on? I kind'a like the look. Seems it just isn't a skoolie without'em.
Tango Just a short reply to say I like your build. I would never go into my bus as far as you have. I just don't have the needed skills. Maybe sometime when you are not busy I would like to talk about a 3-71 jimmy with a #2 bell and ford trans adapter. Once again GREAT BUILD. The best of luck the old man Richard
