I'm excited to see the interior once it's all cleaned out. And it's not work, it goes by faster than you think. Seems like only yesterday I was dragging my Square home. Mike, I'm glad to see you survived Don. I'm sure you guys made his week by giving him someone to talk to.

We loved Don, in fact he gave us a new term of endearment to use..."jizzer" Guess you would have had to been there. :laughing: :laughing:

Oh and I will be taking before and after of the interior for sure. The weather and time need to cooperate for me.

Looks like a killer deal to me! whats the interior like? Is that remains of AC? Hows your battery trays?

I think you lucked out with a 72. have you decoded the plate yet?
Great bus!

No worries, I can understand the family thing. Fortunately I have all of my family here to bother me anytime they want. :laughing:

So I did some more "work" ;) last night and tore into inspection, cleanup and some interior removal. I have one tire that won't seal the bead (they will be replaced anyhow) and decided to pull it, so while I had the bus sitting on a jack stand I thought I would check out the rear brakes

Image

Not bad for being older than I am, and I would bet the shoes are OEM.

So then I decided to do a quick test see how the plastics would clean up.

Image

Before

Image

After

Image

Just a sample of the dash

Image

I actually did the whole cab dash, but it was too dark for pics when I finished it up.

I moved onto the rear passengers area and cleaned it up and removed the interior.


Image

Image

Remenants of the AC that was installed

Image

Pulled back the nasty outdoor carpet and found that the OEM rubber mat was underneath :thumbsup:

Image

Image

Pulled out the back seat

Image

Got the rear hatch to open finally...the grease had turned to a solid mass

Image

Image

All those little bits are years of rotting insect corpses :puke:

Image

All clean

Image

After the rear was moderately cleaned up I moved to the front

Image

Image

Stripped all the rubber bits and the passengers seat, and then vac'd out the floor. Found a nice set of Craftsman needle nose pliers under the rubber floor :thumbsup:

It was starting to storm and get dark, but I was able to get a couple more shots before I had to go inside, then go back to work to fix some issues with the power outage

Image

A pile of parts

Image

It's quick work and super easy to clean up. More to be done later.

There he is :thumbsup: Yup that's the AC setup that was pulled out at some point - don't know if I will put it back in or not. I'll email you about the motor, and I have decoded the plate - I'll see if I can get the link :thumbsup:
