That seat material is fairly common you’ll be able to find a good used one without to much trouble, may take a few months to find a perfect one.

D-Pillars have a few rot holes in the boxes, might deal with them, we’ll see.

The hard work is at the back, I’ll get a replacement second hand tailgate lid, but the hinge needs some work and the bodywork needs pulling out. That’s ok, it’s not rotten just bent. I’ve got a good bodywork man up the road @ WiseWagens who is up for helping.

Looks like it got reversed into a post.

Robbed the lid-stay off the rear lid for this locker box. Cleaning required here.

About 30 rivets in this bed, got half of them out so far. Therefore a few small holes to weld up, to make it less sieve like :)

Image

Oh, the fasteners for the engine lid are all good, the M10 threaded holes I mean. I’ll make a new lid. Could someone measure their factory engine lid please or point me to a spec. sheet? Ta!

Engine Lid, I believe it was wooden from factory.:

Various bits I’ve found strewn about the vehicle. These came off the rear bulkhead, not quite sure what they’re for though Image

Wheels need some work, but I kinda like the whole rustic charm!

I'd hazard a guess that those plates from the bulkhead were reinforcing plates where some sort of ladder rack/bar was bolted through

I don’t have measurements but found this one for sale - may have the same patina as the bus:
