    The worst rust I found, was actually on the rear bumper, underneath the rubber strip.

    So out with the angle grinder and flapper disk, to remove all the surface rust. (The inside of the bar was rust free).

    Then out with cutting compound to buff the whole bar, and some Rustguard paint applied to seal the areas.

    Finally bolted back onto the bus, and the scrubbed and treated rubber strip re installed.

    Working on it - but my doors aren’t yellow like the pic! :(

    Front doors are on the list of things to do in the next 48 hours. ;)

    Drivers side guide and felt is fine, but passenger side is missing both. I must carry too many careless clumsy passengers! :eek:

    They are genuine Hella blenders, I bought from an Ebayer in Germany 12 - 15 years ago. So no, they didn’t come with the bus, but I have had them on for quite a while.

    Got the wipers and handles finished baking with the black Cerecote finish.

    So before:

    And after:

    All the fixed glass now back in, and front bar fitted. Onto the front doors next............

    Hi Grantus,
    Keep going, looks great & loving the cerecote. :D Do it once, do it well!
    Now you'll be able to be nervous about the first work horse dent (until it happens & then it's easy after that!);)
    Cheers
