The original fuel tank tray of this bus was well and truely rotten, so we have this donor section cut from a rust free van to make the necessary repairs…..First job on the list, remove all the excess metal.
The support beam behind the chassis rail that sits under the fuel tank tray was in a pretty bad way too so out this comes ready for a new piece.
Once we’re happy, the repair is finished…..on to the next one.
The inner front wheel arches need some attention along with the ‘B’ pillars so these are up next….
The usual rusty chassis and poor repairs were also lurking by the rear torsion rube on the otherside of the bus…..so this was rectified too.
