    been down the shop again today,
    The door window surrounds have been removed - its easier to work on them like that and it will stop me locking myself out again (the only lock key is so soft i'm frightened of snapping it.

    Got to work on lifting more of the floor and had a little posey shot next to the bus....

    I'm going to do it just like it was when it was in service (see the first pic on this page).

    Best bit about picking it up on a tractor is that it took them 2 hours to get to mine to collect!

    Got down for a short while after work today.

    Figured with all the grinding i'm doing i should probably remove the heater and fuel tank!

    Eberspascher and fuel tank removed:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 05082010489

    With a bit of work this should scrub up as good as new:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 05082010496
    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 05082010497

    Think i'm going to sell this once its all cleaned up - i'm not comfortable with a petrol fed heater.
    Anyone know how much these go for? Will start trying to get some prices when its all cleaned up.

    engine bay is nice and empty now:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 05082010502
    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 05082010490

    And removed a little more of the cargo floor:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 05082010501
    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 05082010498

    Fridays are half day at work so plan is to get a load more floor up.

    Today, the plan was to just do little bits as i'm usually knacked after a week at work - but ended up getting more done than i'd hoped for!

    First off, bits arrived!

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 06082010502
    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 06082010504

    Pulled up the welded on sheet steel to see what horrors lay benieth, turned out it was all that scary:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 06082010505
    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 06082010506

    thought i better take a pic of the switch locations as these will be coming out tomorrow:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 06082010509

    The plan for tomorrow was to lift the rest of the floor, but as it turned out i managed to get nearly all of it out today:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 06082010513

    And, most importantly of all, got the operator fuel cell in place:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 06082010514

    more to come tomorrow!

    Great thread and so good to see it coming along. The dash looks in great shape. I totally agree with your plan to do this as it was originally, it will look superb. Keep up the top work.

    Ok, first day of the big push.
    Rest of the bulkhead trimmed out and cleaned up ready for the new bulkhead:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 01092010586

    Gearbox, drums, driveshafts etc removed to allow access and somewhere to feed the floor tubes through:

    ANOTHER new toy.......... nee nar nee nar.......... - Page 2 01092010594

    This pic is a bit of a cheat, the bulkhead is not actually fitted yet - but we offered it up for fit. Its exciting seeing the interior space take shape:

    Cool, it is one hell of a build project and my favourite thread on here. Get some more pics posted soon and keep on trucking with the work. Can't wait to see it finished.

    everything is on hold until pay-day at the end of the month, then i'l buy some more metal and move forwards again. The trouble is, each step takes about 200-300 quid of bits so i can really only move on at the start of every month! Laughing

    It'll be worth it in the end though and it's kind of cool to do it a bit at a time. Hang in there, It'll be uber cool once you've got it sorted.
