The body is now back on the chassis !
Have a look at the complete article for more pictures ;-)
Only a few hours of work on the bus this week but that was enough to put the body back on the chassis. They are not welded together yet, but everything seems to be aligned nicely :
There is some nice OG-paint left in that engine compartment, hey ?
I’ve been surprised to see the inside of the corner didn’t have dove blue overspray like the other side…
Then i’ve seen there is an abnormal seam with 2 pieces on top of each other around the belt line.
This is actually a new corner (probably NOS from the 50’s as it has the reflector recess) welded on the belt line on top of the other… with a thick coat of filler outside to hide the seam.
So i couldn’t let it as is and I decided to remove it to replace it again :
I am looking for a NOS corner, or at least an OG donor part, to make the repair. Not easy to find but the bus deserve it.
Have a good Sunday !
Ah!!je pense que c'est un moment que beaucoup de gens comme moi attendaient, c'est chose faite, bon courage pour la suite!
Un truc de malade !!

Merci ! Pour le coin NOS en effet il n'a suffit que de quelques emails aux bonnes personnes ! Le gauche part d'Allemagne demain et j'irai chercher le droit en Belgique dans les jours à venir...
Big thanks to Gunther and Dirk !!!
