I’m making stuff happen with this Bus. Brought it out to Aaron’s (Widedive) late last year to get some odds and ends sorted out like steering, tie rods, spindles, brakes, heater boxes, muffler, etc.

I figured while the bus is sitting around at Aaron’s shop, that it was time to get started on an interior project. First step was to strip the middle seat I had in the garage and get that over to Bruce’s shop to weld it back together.

Next step was removing all the red interior panels and getting the seats over to Bill To reupholster. Bill has already got the front seats completed and they look great!
