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

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

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

Sadly i don't have a picture of the driver cabin floor at the moment.

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.

And the lower area of the windscreen frames is also complete again!

At first, when we were taking down all the layers of later resprays, we thought we could keep as much original paint as possible. But then we decided to better do a good metal work job that last for a few decades. So now we are thinking about doing a respray in the original colours again.

L360 Sea Blue
L860 Cumulus White

We already ordered some small cans for test sprays - below you can see the sea blue paint:

Sadly, when we cut out the old front mask of our bus, we damaged it as we cut away two corners on the left side. Now we welded them back in place and it will make a nice piece of decoration at home! Very Happy

The bars all are very solid. So we spent lots of time with sanding them, using the sanding machine, wire brushes and scrapers. Then covering them with rust disolver / primer. We often work with nightshifts during the last weeks..

Lots of rust at this sill - caused by old, crumbly window seals, as the previous owner told us.. so rain could get inside the bus and was collected down there.. Crying or Very sad

Body work

We decided to replace the entire nose - as the front section showed a front damage that has not been fixed good (happened before 1990).

So thats we we cut out the old front mask:
