Stitch 'er up
The Great Bus Restoration continues. Here are some more shufties. This first is of the new B-post area under construction. New outrigger, jack point, new door rail and sills, and new metal to join them all.
The new B-post "top hat" section in place.
The door is fifty inches from bottom of bottom roller to top of top roller. We need to make sure the new door rail is ready to use, so we're looking for fifty inches.
Cleaning up the door threshold, ready for some new metal reinforcement.
Patch for the B-post edge to the right front wheel well: sized up...
... and plug-welded in.
And a patch to cover the top hat.
I'm ordering primer, seam sealer, and paint. I don't expect to hang around with this project. Full steam ahead!
