OK, things are taking longer than expected but its better to do it right than fast :).   Interior painted, exterior masked and getting close to paint.  Everything is ready to be reassembled.  Bumpers, wheels, tires, locks, sunroof, window frames, glass, chrome belt, seats, etc all replaced or restored to look new.   I do need a trans...

That is coming along nicely!!  You know what they say, "Good things come to those who wait."  That will be worth the wait for sure.

Hi Guys,

The only things i have not replaced or restored are:
Clock - Actually still works but is fast
Gas Gauge - Needs to be restored
Speedometer - Broken Needle and pitted.
Glass - Original baby windows, rear glass, and front glass.  All pop outs new.

Next: Final windows, belt trim, chrome bumper trim and that is about it. :)

Its been a while since I posted up here.  Restoration is complete.  I also went with Wagenswest IRS, disc brakes up front. 

See you around town!  Honk at me if you see "Da Bus"
