Offered up the doors today and at first it all seamed ok -

....but then some issues started to raise their heads. I am sure this should close further....

ah rats, a good inch at the bottom which makes me think the door bottom is warped which given the crap welding and repairs that are down there is a distinct possibility.

Looked online but CandC have stopped doing the bottom section frame repair and their correct fit replacement door is for 55-60 so has the wrong handle pressing. hmmmmmm :roll: :roll:

Cut the dash out of the bus today and got to the heater tubes. Hmmm some work required.

I resigned myself to resurrecting my worm ridden air box but purists should look away now!

:compress: The left hand side is fat lip pressing and the right hand side is thin lip pressing so it can be used on all years of bus :lol:
