I think sometimes when I post pretty pictures of how the bus is looking, I forget to show how it was before a repair. Truth is, the bus was seriously lacking in maintenance. So, That is both good news and sometimes bad news.
Good news is that the bus is fairly original and not messed up with bad do-it-yourself repairs. It is also a rather good body in terms of rust issues.
Bad news is that the lack of simple maintenance can be,,,, well,,, amazing.
Here is how it looked when I went to replace the side markers. By the way, the silly 4 watt bulb was still working!
