Working on fixing up chads panel bus suspension,while raising the steering box, I found a big cracked mess under a half-fix.
Ended up making a new part for the shop to build and sell, a steering box raise – frame section kit.
My son and I took a drive to the bay area and delivered Bob’s bus on Saturday. Took in a Giants game and got to see Buster Posey hit a home run, it was a good time and Bob was pretty stoked.
Thanks Bob for the biz and the great feedback.
Well no one wanted this Jersey looker tub so on the rack it goes.
This bus was hit hard by the 1970’s, it features a glass sunroof among many other tastefully done modifications. The Mega tail lights with hand made bulb sockets are attached to a custom wire harness, the harness connects to a period style push button command module. Among the many upgrades the front floor was reinforced and insulated, by carefully glueing a piece of factory floor mat under a very nicely cut piece of galvanized sheet metal. Fender flaires and Micky Thomson slicks were all the rage when this bus was built, getting those Cheverlay mags on was not a problem with the latest in automotive technology “stamped steel adapters”. Last but not least, it gets steamy in the back a panel bus, pop out chrome vents were a must.
