Our first pics of Evie getting work done
Not much rust really for a 76 ,the real issues are inside
76 the best for no rust. I've got lots of understanding on this from 1500king. Happy to share. Was the aerial a pillar mount on that A pillar?
And show us the inside issues Evie. Some photos pls.
It looks like the mounting holes for the aerial are down lower on the left hand side front in line with the vent grill in the first photo above
Ah Kimosabee......... well spotted.
Some inside shots of problem areas
Great name for a bus. I might be biased though.
we thought it was the perfect name
We are happy to share
Why did you pick the name ?
Will you be removing the poptop ...... fair chance there is rust under there seeing what you've found on the inside above the window in the 2nd photo in post #7
If you look close on my first pic ,you will see a full length pop top ready for painting
We will replace our smaller damaged one for a far better condition pop top
Our Evie came pre named by Juri (The previous Owner).
We have always kept our rescue dogs and cars names.
My new ute is the first one we got to name - Gracie - My daughter named her as she is grey.
you have rescue dogs?
so do we?
Tell us more
The first was an Alaskan Malamute who we got from the RSPCA at Kingaroy. They tentatively put a listing on the internet expecting to have to bring them to brisbane to rehome them. But we turned up and got him on opening. Still groggy from being desexed at 8 weeks old.
We lost him at 5 1/2 to Bone cancer in his skull which sucks. He was a special dog.
Our current dog is an Australian Shepherd. We got him on a tip off from the Gold Coast pound at 4 months old. He was being held for us for 5 minutes after opening. 4 other people were waiting if we did not take him. Turns out he has a bad skin condition presenting from nerve damage (Dare say a breeder dumped him). But 5 tablets morning and night and he is an exspensive little champion. Once again a special dog. Brilliant temperament and loyal as can be.
More rust cut out ,progress is slow but thorough
