That's coming along nicely, I like the color. Will the top be red/orange as well?

Pretty much as it was. The only exception was a touch of mine... I ask the paint guy to do the speedo pod in orange without getting the owner’s green light. 8-[


He likes it! :razz:

Tail lights are on and working!

Image

Image


Also fixed a broken bolt on the rear hatch latch mechanism.

Image


The headlights... were a royal PITA to get to fit! Was a battle on both ends, the after market fixtures and the new headlight buckets on the front skin! :-/

Image

Image


But got them in, damn it! :twisted:

Image

Image


Front driver's side window frame all done too!

Image


Coercing the top flap rubber on the frame to "fold" neatly the right way!

Image


Down to very few items left to do in the final check list, but it's starting to look like a finished bus! :cool:

Okay, roast me if you want, but I really like the seat covers. The bus is custom already, so they don't really offend, but I really like them.

Well, just about done here! Under dash tray installed. :cool:

Image

Image

Image

Image



With that done, I then had to install the speedo cable. After trying to shove it down the hole blindly, I figured a better way using some small vinyl tubing! :razz:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image



And finally got the rear hatch glass installed with a bit of help. :smile:
