    What side is the rear corner repair? Could you drop me a pic? Cheers.

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    Not a clue! It's not even the self adhesive stuff so I'm not fully convinced yet. But it's on pretty snug and doesn't feel like it wants to shift too easily. I'll keep my eye on it over the next few weeks and see how it holds up. Sent from my FIG-LX1 using Tapatalk

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    Not much progress. Can't afford a decent wheel to replace my absolutely sun baked, cracked piece of crap. So bought some road bike bar tape. So far so good... Sent from my FIG-LX1 using Tapatalk

    The other panel? Can do. I'll wait until its all together before I get rid of anything but I think I'll have a spare arch . What bit do you need? Sent from my FIG-LX1 using Tapatalk

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    As suspected, it fits like a bag of shit. Picking up another panel on Weds for another bash. I'll make it a bit bigger all round and then trim it bit by bit until it's right!

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    I have no idea what I'm doing. Outer panel cut to size. Think I might have made it just a little short on the top edge but won't know until I've fettled the sides and bottom parts so it's a snug fit down there. I tried to give myself a 10mm extra all the way round but the top still comes up...

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    Had an hour this morning to get stuck in to the last patch. This one I used a piece of card to make a template and was chuffed with how nicely the patch fit. It made welding much easier with it being a tight fit. Onto the outer arch as soon as I've stuck some paint and seam sealer on it. Sent...

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    So far... So acceptable. I've started fitting the patches. They aren't perfect but they've jiggled into place quite well. My welding is shocking but it's getting the job done for now. I've been welding bits on the cleaning the welds back and filling in the bits I've missed / blown through...

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    Having spoken to a couple of local mobile welders, I decided to just have a crack myself. I have a welder and a grinder. I've done some welding before but not a huge amount. Any pointers gladly received. Ive cut the old metal out and I'm making up some pieces to fit so I can butt weld them in...

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    Couple of little bits picked up today. Just some mats I made and had edged. Not perfect but thayre exactly what I need for day to day running about without everything looking scruffy as hell. I'm struggling to find insurance having had 2 accidents in 2 years. Any recommendations welcome. JK...

    Expanding foam in box sections of chassis

    A flexible drain unblocking tool might work, they come with all sorts of different ends, maybe one with a rigid claw type attachment would do it.. Sounds like an absolute pain to sort, so good luck!

    Another Sierra Yellow Deluxe

    Could be my buses twin brother. Looks dead similar to when I got mine! Looks mint, can't wait to see what you do with it.

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    Had a pop at the arch today. I'm a bit crap at stuff like this but wanted to do as much as I can myself. Learning curve and all that. I cut the ropey arch off and cleaned up the tub. There are a few holes in that so I will cut those out and patch them before I fit the new arch. I lined it up and...

    1971 Deluxe Import - A blank canvas

    The bus is now home as I'm moving unit soon. Took a spare hour today to investigate a crusty arch. It's had a rough repair in its life so going to bare metal then repair with a new panel. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk

    Deluxe armrest air vents

    From my us import deluxe. Black with the support bars, bulkhead vents and the airport vents (not pictured but will be included) They're in ok condition but will need a couple of repairs. If you're handy with fiberglass they'll be spot on with little effort. More pics available if needed. They...
