Re: Betty 1965... Yeah that bus!

We also made a pair of dies for our pullmax so we can fabricate repair section when needed for other restorations.

Re: Betty 1965... Yeah that bus!

The original roof had been cut off 3 inches below and into each pillar post, so we found a good cut so we could replace the rear sections, the drivers side however had the lower section missing.

So we had to fabricate up the new section, weld in and dress the welded area.

It really is not, look closely at the dog legs and panels you will see they are ALL wrong.

1956 RHD Splitscreen aka noodles

So here is a 1956 RHD bus.

In for the now standard BDP restoration works of blasting, stripping, welding and painting.

Should be fun!

Comes with a few green panels so no long waiting times for shipping, as Shane the chef says let’s get cook.
