dude that looks great!! slap a coat of paint on that bus before the tiny home show and you'll get good coin for it, either that or you'll decide you want to keep it.. then we can swap a allison 2000 into it, some A/C(hey any bus I work on always gets AC'd) and make it a runner / keeper!

Pulled the right side entry door and fixed the rust on the bottom of it. Also greased the bushings and added a washer to account for the years of opening and closing.
Door always opened and closed with the switch just fine, but was slow to open, so got that fixed today. Door is working GREAT!

Was that outside surface rust or rust originating from the inside between the sheet metal panels.
I have had very bad luck with slowing down rust without separating the panels, cleaning the areas and putting it back together. Esspecially wheel wells.

The lower part below the panels that holds the rubber at the bottom of the door.
The door frames and skins were fine.
Stuck a screw and washer in the middle of each side of the rubber to prevent sagging and used a bit of glue. The glue made a little bit of a mess, but overall I'm happy with how it came out.

Their only issue getting home was a loose interlock button on the back door. Bus started buzzing and wouldn't start when they stopped. Easy fix, everyones safe and happy!

I'll miss these buses and will someday have another. This shorty was hard to part with.
