The wall prepared to go in the bus..this wall is from the front of the bus we took in the woods.

Since I got a dougther last summer It hasn't happened that much on the bus, but the cargo floor is also now welded.
But I have found two wrecks in the woods that we are going to cut into pieces tomorrow. One 58 and One 63, both Klein 11w. Thougt i should have added some pictures but it didn't work, (testing the tapatalk app)

Some things has happened since I last updated this thread.
2kids and house repair later I have welded everything on the bus now and here it's outside in the fresh air for the first time since we moved it to this house in 2010.
Image

I built my own sandblaster and has now blasted all the rust from it, I know it's not pretty but it works fine :)ImageImageImage

I have also started to paint the bottom.
Image
ImageThere is a lot to do left but now it feels like I'm getting anywhere since almost all of this progress has happened in the last 1 and a half years.

Finally it has been some progress...
All of the paint work have I done by myself in my own garage, before this I had never painted a car with a spray gun.
I'm very pleased with the resultImage
