nice work, and pretty decent condition underneath too! What is the box under the seat for? House battery or something? You don't need photobucket for adding images. Click "reply" on top right when adding your post, then it will say "add image to post" at top right, click on that, then a new window will open where you can drag images to. Click load once you have dragged them over, then wait for it to add them to your post, and hit reply. Once you get the hang of it, it's easier than photobucket.
See I had screen in to.... that was the hardest job ever...luck my on was around to help me.... I'll add more pics later... undersides,,stripped and rubberised shutz sprayed.... most dirty jobs down... been on van everyday since lockdown..so yr see it's happened fast...hope the patina don't put readers off....surface rust is staying..rotted area are done ..cut and weld,done😊 my rustoration 😍👍
