I did not do the tires! Someone else was in charge of that. :neutral:

The worst part of this process was putting on the clips that hold the aluminum trim on th panels! :-x


In order to get the tight curved spots take proper shape, I used them super magnets. They worked great! :cool:

Must have been installed at one point, but weren’t there when I got it. Then again, this bus had been hit in the back so it could possibly be a delux hatch too! :???:

Also, had a bit of an issue with the throttle being slow to return to idle. Changed the return spring and its position, but the new rubber mat wasn’t helping so I had to do some trimming. :neutral:

Thanks for the kudos! Some of the work has required help, though! The upholstery and headliner was assigned to someone else but was done here at home with my help. I can say this much about the headliner... while it came with all needed pieces and necessary hardware as well as instructions on how to install it, it’s definitely a three person job! At least to lay “up” the center pieces. Being “slats” with fabric backing, they are very flexible and hard to hold into position prior to screwing the cross strips on. :???:
