I took my daughter down to visit grandpa over the weekend and ran into this awesome bay window at the zoo. Appeared to be real solid. Super cool bus with lots of style.

I finally had time to zerorust the frame head today.  Getting it ready to mount the beam I picked up in chicago.

I think it turned out really well.  I’ll be working on mounting the beam and transferring the linkage off the old beam this week.  hopefully it will be rolling pan by next weekend.  My Porsche wants back in the garage.

I got the replacement firewall installed last night and put about 40 spotwelds on it.  Seems very stable, I only welded the external flange thats under the gas tank for now.  I may try welding the internal flange after the heater channels are replaced but I think I may need to move around the internal half of it a tad to match up with the heater channel replacements so left it loose for now.

The spotwelder is awesome for this kind of work since the steel on the replacement panel is so thin.  If you get it clean its pretty much a no brainer to weld it right.

Clamp down flip the switch and zot.
