ROT RIDDEN RESTO......IT BEGINS...3/8/07

Well, I must be mad :smt017 I've finally made a start on James Rot Ridden Bus and on closer inspection it's considerably worse than I first though :lmao
This Bus has had some first class "bodge repairs" done in the past which includes a new repair method of using Gaffa Tape to fill holes and gaps in the roof and gutters and then cover it with filler or just paint :smt009 :smt013
Here's a few pictures to get you all in the mood for what is sure to be some very good reading/viewing.... Enjoy :smt012

Image

There's a few bits of rust here and there as you can see
Image

Managed to get the engine fitted and moved the Bus to the rear of our house to begin the surgery.... The engine turns out to be a 1200 and not a 1600 which was not good to find out :smt005 Looks like another engine will need to be found now.
Image

Notice the trusty tarpaulin sheet to protect me from the North East weather :smt003
Image

Oh dear :smt017
Image

Image

Just look what happens when you remove the window :smt019
Image

I think you need a closer look at this bit.... It's impressive :smt016
Image

Image

Rear chassis is not looking to good and there's nothing holding the rear Torsion tube to the chassis as it's all rotted away
Image

Image

Image

Hello, what's this ? . . . Yep you guessed it, time to get the cutting disc and grinder out :smt007
Image

Only way to get rid of the Rot is to cut it out :smt009
Image

Lot's more to follow once I have your attention. Let the games begin :smt012

:lmao Where's your sense of adventure guys :smt017 It's not that bad :smt020

Hey Sarah, I'll hold you to that when I see you at RTTH... Sounds interesting :smt016
-------------------------------------------------------------
Right, here we go. Made some progress this week but need to upload more pictures so these will have to do you for now :smt007

Cut the rot out of the Roof, gutter and middle window framework and then cut off the door post and window post to accept the secondhand replacement side window frame complete with gutter and roof section.
Very tricky operation with lots of measurements etc. You only get one shot at this.....
Image

Turned out ok as you can see, one side window area now repaired :smt003
Image

The rear side window was another story however and the only way to fix this was to make my own window frame from sheet metal :smt017 Not easy at all :smt005
Image

As you can see it's well rotten
Image

Chopped out the rot with grinder
Image

First repair section made and fitted. You can see the top section I also made ready to go in place
Image

Just about completed the lower frame repair now and added the mounting plates to accept the side cover as well
Image

Moving on to the top of the window frame and gutter area. This was repaired in the past with a strip of Gaffa Tape and fibreglass :smt017
Image

This is what the Gaffa Tape was covering up
Image

Not much holding this together. 2 tack welds and that was it
Image

More to follow after my Psychiatrist has been :smt119
