It's already been to long and I feel the need for another Rust Fix :smt007

Here we go again, I took delivery of this on Tuesday 24th March 2009.
This time it's an Early 1970 Devon Bay but was actually registered in 1972. Must be one of the newest Early Bays around :smt003
Suffering from a few stone chips and the odd paint blemish..... Might need a couple of new grinders for this one :smt009

It's been off the road for a few years hence the moss coating

Gave it a good clean with industrial strength truck wash
Image

Image

Some idiot in the past has cut the rear end up and fitted late bay lights to it for some bizarre reason :smt014
Image

Still has the origonal Devon interior though :smt003

Just for Paul, another view of the VW dealership :lmao

I'll save the Rusty Rot pictures for the next update. Don't want to spoil you all :smt016 :smt012

Well.... You just never know do you :smt017 :lmao
I did have the option to buy it at a very good price but decided to take the offer of doing a joint venture with a friend of mine to fix it up and sell it.
It might not look it, but it's a really good van underneath and was fully Zebarted from new so chassis and floor is in very good shape.
Most of the rot is all due to very poor prep work and filler repairs when it was painted in the past so after a few panels have been changed it'll start looking much better :smt012

Good to hear you have another Bus project! I look forward to seeing you work your magic again.

The extent of your refurbishment of the (now) yellow Bus was astounding!
