It's projects like this that make me realize just how lucky I was to happen upon my Margie in all her faded, but original glory.

Good job and good luck with the rest of your project.

Thank you all for the kind words! They keep us motivated! Wink

So in the meantime we covered the new fitted floors with primer.
Sadly i don't have a picture of the driver cabin floor at the moment.

And thats what we did during the last weekend.

Luckily our neighbour also has two car projects at the moment and built a ramp in his driveway. Such a great idea! Applause Now he is on holiday and allowed us to use it too Dancing

The ramps are great.

I like this photo because it looks like the cross-beam is held up by cones and a little step stool Very Happy

So after weeks of not posting i felt like it is time for an update.

It was not easy for us, but we decided that Eve will receive a new paint job.
Of course in original colors - Sea blue (L360) and cumulus white (L680).

Here are some pictures that show how the optic of our bus changed during the past weeks.

Basically all we did was preparing for the new paint job. We covered the bus in primer and wet-sanded it.
Then we used primer again and sanded everything down again with wet sanding paper. We repeated the process 2-3 times.
With the black spots that you can see in some pictures below, we marked areas that sill needed work.

so that's it for now.. these days we sleep very well as we are tired all the time due to working all the time - outside.. during very hot summer days.. #Sleep

Already looking forward to the new paint job that will happen soon!

PS: Here are some other news - i was lucky enough to find a 10 second long footage of our bus on youtube.

It shows the previous owner driving Eve on Main Street in Manti - Utah as he attended "Rat Fink Reunion 2014" with Big Daddy Ed Roth.
Back then the bus also received a pin striping by a beginner above the front emblem as well as on the decklid.

And here are some photos showing how the new upholstered seats match with the sea blue paint on the outside.

The previous owner in the Netherlands already let a workshop do the upholstery. As original aeropapyrus was not available anymore, they decided to use some fabrics that come close to the original - or at least match with the outside.

Please note that the inside of the bus still needs lots of work, which we will take on in the nearby future. Of course we already ordered the exact same fabrics that were used for the seats, so we can also use it for the interior panels - will make a nice fall/winter job.
