This is where I bought it the first time.
Heres where the windows are being removed and I'm having to cut out that bubbled piece of metal to make enough flat space for the new windows I bought to fit.
after the bubble was removed I had a huge hole to fix, so welded in some metal and grinded it smooth :)
now up goes the 20 guage sheetmetal to fill in the hole, I used a roofing polyureathane goo to make it water tight, and used 3/16 Fatty Rivits to match the OE rivits best I could.
one side completed
now I've removed the top flashers and filled the holes in with a sheetmetal plate, same 20 guage metal and rivited and gooed. I'm in the process of sanding it all down right now and plan on shooting the primer in a week or so. Hop you guys like the conversion, I'll be adding solar panels, kitchen, water heater, computer station, queen bed, led lighting, and a 48 volt battery bank made with electric golf cart deep cycle batterys.
Ok heres the primer on and I also have now cut out the holes for the windows
And now I have the black base on for the color changing effect to lay down on, hope to have the effect and clear coat layed down next weekend, its too windy now to continue this weekend.
Heres the interior color, its a silver metallic
Heres a sneak peak at the dash, its the same silver metallic, with a dark greay metallic for the trim work.
Windows are in! its really coming together now, Soon I run wiring and piping on the inside.
I started painting at dawn when the winds here are at a minimum. Does it have $20,000 Model A custom paint, no theres a few spots where a bug landed in it. I didnt have a shop to pull it into so I did the best I could with what I had. I think it came out just fine for a 1982 school bus, sure beats the yellow! :) As far as "getting away with it" I live in a town with a population of 1000 in the middle of nowhere, theres no mail man, garbage pick up, police force, or even a wal-mart around ha ha, so ya there was no probs painting outside with my respirator on. Now I got people here wanting me to paint their rigs... I say, only if you sand it!
