Recent stuff done:
I picked up a new set of front doors that are not rusty,
bezel around lights has been ground down(to remove rust and primered)
Frame has been stripped down cleaned and re-coated
Full electrical has been stripped and re-wired
I am currently sanding body parts (removing surface rust)
Straightening out the body (slightly off that the front doors wont close)
New floor pan has been installed.
To do's:
remove the dumb checker plate on the sides
waiting on new fenders, and a turned front axle
new tail lights to come.
I picked up recently 2 rear tire carriers for the cruiser to good of a deal to pass up


Lokking for new hindges for the rear ambulance doors.


Picks are from when I got the cruiser a couple of weeks back
just havent uploaded the new ones from yesturday yet
