Front Bumper Mock-Up

The front bumper over-riders and “towel bar” were assembled onto the front bumper to check the fit of the towel bar. The towel bar came from a different bus and had a fair amount of denting and deformation. Initially the holes did not line up by several inches; a 1/16″ relief cut in exactly the right spot was all that was needed to allow the bar to bend and the holes to all align. Much of the bodywork for the towel bar will be done with it assembled to the bumper to avoid causing any warping that would prevent reassembly. Also, small parts were organized into a rough assembly line, progressing from right to left. Some sub-assemblies are very close to the point where they could be re-assembled but are waiting on a part or two to be finished.
