new spring and then screwed it in place. Probably should use Loctite or something on it..? Should I put some kind of grease or something in between the switch and pod? I saw someone here did the same a long time ago.

Yes, Dielectric grease will be good for that job. I used it on my switches

After this I got a new place to use as a garage much closer, been 1,5 hour away before! ' haven't had a real garage in a couple of years, that's one reason why this building has been standing still for so long.

So now can I finally start building for real Laughing Been working a couple of hours everyday now last week. Been working on preparing the front-beam, grind it down and put some paint on everything.

Took of the small pipes from the shocks

Got a less nice suprice when I took the beam appart.. the lower torsion leaves was broken. Already got a NOS for the upper one but now I had to find another one for the lower. Luckily I found another NOS after a couple of days! Waiting to get it home right now.

Haven't seen this bus project for awhile!
Should I be ashamed to say my favorite part of your update is the fuse box restoration?
Nice detail work.

Hellberg, Mo & Domsjö AB 1955 is looking great, congratulations.

How did you clean these connectors? Did you use vinegar and water or electric clean? They turned out great. I love your new workspace too. Wink

Thanks!


I only used degreaser and a toothbrush, managed to get out the screws carefully using nothing but a screwdriver and then I layed them in a bath of rust-dissolver. Used a small steel brush on the connectors Laughing

Got the front beam in place, still waiting for some parts to arrive before I can put everything together!

Also I've been working on to get all the brake-lines in place, mock-up with the steeringwheel and but some filler on the body.

Finished the pod yesterday, so I could start to assemble the electric harness!

The spring in the speedometer was broken so I took it appart and put the end of the spring in place and pressed the small pin in place, used some epoxyglue to make sure it stays there. Took the opportunity to reset the trip meter.

Got the old lady down on its wheels, brakes finished and almost all mechanical work finished and then I gave it a gentle wash. Still waiting to get the enginge home, until then I have some small works to do.
I'll need to put some hours to get the new paint to blend in nice with the old paint, don't really like the looks of it now. Not really satisfied with the rims either Laughing
