On… ¿lolque?

Today I got bored and decided to start sanding and bondo-ing the bus down to prepare for my ultra-secret paintjob plan, and I discovered something.

But first, let’s put a flap disc on the angle grinder and remove some of the rust bubbles:

Driver’s-side dogleg

Holes on the driver’s door for a marker light. No holes exist on the passenger door.

The passenger dogleg is completely fucked. It was rust next to bondo that was over more rust. I’m going to do the same thing, but this time I’m going to go a bit further in rust removal. Eventually it will need to be replaced with new metal.

Time to start sanding.

Wait, pearl green paint on the decklid?

I saw some shinyness in the paint, so I threw some water on it

I’d almost be tempted to save it because it looks like it originally wrapped ALL THE WAY AROUND the bus, but the nose, passenger door, rear passenger panel behind the sliding door, and rear quarter panel have all been replaced, so the pattern wouldn’t be solid.

God damn hippies.
