Restoration 64 split screen

Post by mickg » Wed Jan 30, 2013 7:25 pm

Hi all
can anyone help I am doing a restoration on a 64 split screen and I can't work out how to post pictures I have got an account with photo bucket and uploaded some pictures to it in a library but i'm stuck now I must be getting old or is it not as easy as you would think ?

Thanks for any help Mick.

Or alternatively. Click on the image in photobucket. On the right of the screen you will notice a box titled "Image Links". Copy the link entitled IMG code. It's the 4th one in the list. Past that directly to your post. Easy

Its in quite good condition Image

Of to work for the start
At this point I have had the red 9 suspension on order for five weeks the new engine has been stripped and painted Image

Stripped and ready for a quick blasting Image

Blasting underside done Image

Oops lots of filler Image

Got to go new one on order Image

Meanwhile I need more windows Image

I still need more windows Image

Back out for a bit more blasting Image

A few repairs and a good coat of zinga and I can forget about this for a few years Image

A new face for splitty Image

Yes more windows Image

Sorting out the samba windows Image

This side was also full of filler so of with it Image

A quick coat of etch primer while we sort some fab out it took an age to get all the paint of I don't want it going rusty Image

I have put in some lockers for tools and spares Image

Finally getting some product on after the filler work we have put two coats of spray filler Image

Guide coated Image

After blocking dow the spray filler we have put three coats of high build primer on we will leave the roof now for two weeks to settle Image

Time for me to do some more repairs there is not much to do just one out rigger a jacking point and both centre supports Image

I did have to make a bit of wing as well Image

The odd repair here and there Image

Even though we fitted a new front panel we still had to give it a small skim of filler just to get it nice Image

Here we are getting all the panels fitting just right Image

After the repairs we gave the van two coats of spray filler Image
Image

Panels look good all the gaps are now spot on Image

We guide coated the spray filler and blocked the van with the panels on so we could block through after it was all rubbed down we did it again Image

Then three coats of high build primer Image
We will leave it now for as long as we can to let the primer settle Image

It will give me time to sort out the underneath Image
The heater tube was shot so I made a new one I am fitting a gas heater so I have re routed the tube a bit Image

As you can see here Image

I have fitted the hook up box here Image

Belly locker all seam sealed and etch primed I will be using the bus a lot so I want to make sure its well sealed up Image

This is a two pack surfacer the underneath looks in good order Image

I fitted the gauges here but they are on a strange angle Image

So I made this Image

Can't wait to block this down Image

Underneath in stone guard 15 tins of it Image

Image
Image

Well I hope you like it so far I will post more pick next week

Cheers Mick.

Crikey! 8O someone's been a busy boy :wink:

It looked in good nick before you ripped it apart! What colors and look etc are you aiming for?

Lowered or stock height? Wheels? Etc

Btw, if you want to edit your main thread title now you're rockin on with the resto pics just go to your first post and hit the edit button and change it there. More ppl will then be attracted to look :D

Hi I am looking for a slightly lowered look I have fitted red 9 design suspension for a good ride and it uses a steering rack so I can drive it in a straight line I have also fitted Jag seats for comfort on the long journeys I know I will get some stick for that but hay ho, it is going red and white but with a twist thanks for the heads up on the title I will sort it

Cheers Mick.

Well that makes a refreshing change, like the underfloor chest idea, after all the originals used these areas for water tanks etc and your not the first or last to turn your bus into a greenhouse, nice job, your not doing the rear windows? 21 looks nice ..thats a very bling interior. I likey:-)keep it up

Cheers for that yes I had not thought about the greenhouse thing but it's a bit late to worry about that now, we are going for a modern look inside with a few comforts with a classic look outside
we do want the bus to be good on the road that is why I went for the red 9 suspension good brakes and steering I will keep the pictures coming

Cheers
