Minor resto on 65 microbus (Poppy)

Post by Nocky » Fri Nov 29, 2019 1:10 pm

Thought I’d show the work being undertaken on my new ride. As expected with a Cali import, there is always going to be some minor attention needed. I was aware of the need for the new near side rear wheel arch which came with the bus when I brought it. But after some investigation, other work has been identified, namely ...front wheel arch outer skin, front near side outrigger, front valance, near side sill.
Other work being done is; repair front panel stone chips, repair front panel dent, repair rear off side corner dent, paint whole near side, paint new US spec bumpers \ towel rails \ overriders, paint new rear splash pans.
Will post pics as work gets done. Still well happy with it, despite the unknown work.
