Bumper Repair

Work started on getting the bumpers ready for primer/bodywork. The front bumper only had a few minor bumps that were straightened out; the rear bumper however had a very deep dent and a tear near one of the brackets. The bumper metal is much thicker than anything else on the bus so removing the rear bumper dent required a considerable amount of beating with an 8lb hammer. Despite the crude method the dent mostly disappeared without introducing much warpage. After the bumpers were straightened paint stripping began, these are among the last remaining parts that are rust-covered. Stripping the inside of the bumpers will require media blasting that will be completed this weekend.
