1961 VW Panel Camper Conversion

This bus found a great customer who loves the bus the way it is. He asked us to do the metal restoration and we have already started. With him wanting to keep the bus in the patina form we decide to sandblast the underside, engine area, cargo and front floor, and about 14 inches up the bus. Now we can see where all the rust is and have order the metal. Once we are done we will then match the paint from the top half of the bus to the bottom. This is going to be a fun build. Can't wait to see it finished.

We have completed all the metal work and now the customer will be taking it over from here. He wants to do the body work and paint so we will epoxy primer the areas that are bare metal for shipping the bus out.
