Re: Griffs 1965 long term (not supposed to be) resto

Done a bit more today, quick hour tidying up wheel well work and test for n/a pillar. Looks ok. Then new sand blaster decides to blow out the side of. All valve 🤦🏻‍♂️ Tomorrow will be a good day as long as the mrs allows it. CD63255B-2852-4A76-8EFC-03F3C34DD816.jpeg 7018F9C1-44B1-4161-BA09-A296CBE1D...

Spot welded the inner wheel tub in today and repaired the lower section on the passenger side one.
Will get pics tomorrow.
Hopefully make a start on the other pillar the too and get started on lining the door up 🤦🏻‍♂️

Re: Griffs 1965 long term (not supposed to be) resto

Bit gutted as I bought the complete inner front frame to make life easier and speed up the job. This didn’t happen as took ages trying to line up doors only to find the panel had been made wrong 🤦🏻‍♂️😟 Good job I cut it up tho, as inside it was already rusting! No treatment in there at all!!

Re: Betty 1965... Yeah that bus!

Cheers! I have a list, it’s getting smaller very slowly too.
Chassis is done, so it’s onto the fun stuff now. Thinking of getting it blasted and epoxied before going further.

Welded a new piece on the n/s seat back today and got the front top hat sitting in the right place. Hopefully get that and a few other bits welded in tomorrow.

Re: Swedish 66 Crew Cab

Wow! Amazing work fair play.
Do you know what length of cable guides and shift rod tube you had sticking out when welded? Mine were cut when I got it and not sure how much to leave on new ones I’m fitting?
