Damn it's really starting to take shape! It's amazing to think back to the found photos, it's come a long way

I have given the remains of my inner window panel to Mark few weeks back, he is going to see if he can save it or make a new panel. I've had no luck at all. I'll drop u a text, got your number already sausage.

I did Rolling Eyes
Was surely a restorable bus but the front clip is now on my early 51 with many other sections, the rear end helped ben's 52 and what is left will help saving my 52 deluxe, so it was worth it... (At least i try to convince myself Smile )

The 53 section used for the long side, is also from a bus I cut a few years back in Sweden. But that one was very bad.

We can't save them all Wink
At least not using original parts. Idea

haha, correct Chris, you know me too well! I don't know the history of either of the buses that gave up donor metal for this one, but was lucky enough to be contacted about some of the parts. I guess that whilst it seems a shame, many buses have met their end over the years and gone on to help save others. Better than rusting away or being squashed into a cube and recycled like a modern scrap car I suppose, and definitely helped with this old girl.

Amazing Ben, can't get enough of this work, craftmanship of the highest quality. Curiousity does compell me to ask... what was the story with the chopped up '52, surely you guys didn't do it? Laughing

Yeh we're getting there but it won't quite be ready by next week Ben! The bus is pretty much tacked together in these photos and still a lot of work to check and double check every measurement before it all gets properly welded up.

Moosehead3333, the Quality Sound build has been a bit slow the last few months due to no spare time but we'll hopefully be back on it during March and try and push it forward. Hopefully you'll have some updates soon!

Anyway, back to this old girl, and we got the long side fixed up and looking like a panel van...........

The window long side as it was, tacked into position

and then with the spot welds all drilled out and both the inner and outer window frames cut out and removed to leave just the internal pillars. We cut the bare minimum for a nice neat fix so the swage line and semaphore hole, etc. were left in position

next we got this repair piece folded up

and welded into position

All welds cleaned up and we have a panel van again!
