Engine back in place (with some starter problems)

So before the engine could go back in , new seals needed to be placed .


New seals in , starter back in place and new fuel lines .


And then it was time to put the engine back where it belongs


once everything hooked up it was time to get it started. So ignition on and ...

NOTHING :( .  checking everything , all looked ok so again bus still nothing . So we pushed it to start an that went fine

But this didn't solve the problem offcourse . So 2 little problems.

first the starting problem . and second the red light in the dash keeps burning .

Hope i can get these problems solved before Budel

Also the front is now all done and shiney . better pic will follow when the bus starts and drives the way it should

nose job

Started sanding down the nose off the bus . The blue went pretty fast and saw no problems , only a little bubbles around the headlight bucket


Now the white is an other story . As i new the nose was resprayed once , the white wasn't done verry well . It was pretty rough and needed faltted out first . So out came the P800 sandingpaper to flatten the paint. A pain in the ass job to do . First dry then wet , then wet with P2000



It's hard to see on the pictures but it was rough . Now everything is as good as flattened and ready to polish up again .

Also i saw while cleaning the front i have the cutout's on the upper windowframes to place safary window's . So these will be probably the next thing on the list . But this won't be for any time soon , as i just blow the turbo off my daily driver and also needs new disc brakes and some other things . (big costs on the daily :(  )

Well here you see the all sanded front , ready to polish


I didn't remove the badge because the inside off the bus is completely wax oiled and i didn't want to brake any off the clips .

Drivers cabin

As i'm still waiting for my engine :( , i started too clean up the drivers cabin . After removing the passengers seat and the grey mat underneath i saw some nasty things


so started cleaning all that mess


After the full cleaning it was time to give it some protection . First primer and then some white .


not a superb job , but it's hided under the seat so. only wanted it to be protected for the time being

hopefully tomorrow it's engine time . fingers crossed
