I too have a 57 single cab and am just about ready to go to paint.
Built a tilt rotiserie of sorts and didn't have the rust you have but still had a ton of work. (working those long gates is a BITCH!)
Pic is right before we began work..

I'll try and post up some more pics, and keep us updated!

My sister lives in Bad Fischau, used to live in Linz, too. There is also a gentleman who restores and rebuilds Busses in Bad Fischau, mostly Bay windows I think.
