Here is a 54 barndoor deluxe that was hit in the passenger side rear and subsequently was cut up. I came across the pieces and could not pass them up. Is this bus fixable in this day and age? It has a 20- vin and # stamped in the bulk head. is it worth saving?

Over the past week, on and off, I've been reading this thread and have been amazed at the will of all those involved with this project. It's one thing to start a restoration, it's quite another to push through the rough parts of it. But here you are, congrats and all the best as you continue.

Very nice Ben ! Shocked
I had to take a look back at the first pages of this thread, to see with what you started with again... and be sure it really is the same bus Idea

(Only suggestion and maybe you plan to do it, but I would repaint the big rusted area on the long side panel as well Wink )
