Little bit of progress.

Found this speedo in my stash that I didnt remember I had gone through already. Been so long I dont even remember if it came out of this bus or another one. Also removed the wire harness, acid dipped the fuse box and went through the 3 dome lights.

The roof was easiest to strip, no steel wool needed, just a wet rag after the oven cleaner.

Here you can see the blue that was all over the interior and next to it where I removed the blue and it got a little touch up paint.

Dont have a before pic of this area being all blue for some reason. Krylon Fusion "river rock" color was used to tough up most of this area as it had been sanded past the OG paint before the blue was applied.

Had a huge honkin dent here I had to remove.

Paint or polish the dash? It had the same fate of having previously been sanded past OG paint.

I'd paint it too. Just take a panel with OG paint to the paint store and get a good match.

Inside up front is looking good. Lots of hard long hours going into this.
Wiring in the rear is complete. Have a few tricks up my sleeve but want to see if it fits before posting.... not the same as the cats "if i fits, i sits" scenario if you know what I mean.

Been helping Alex get this beast ready for Prado. His tranny rebuild hit a snag and it will be 3 more weeks, six total probably. In the meantime there’s plenty to do...
