thanks joek3167. I guess no one has done this before. did a little measuring and they should mount up OK. Found a '65 bus with perfect fenders and grill and the core support which I really needed.

Years ago lots of school buses wound up in salvage yards. In no time everything from the firewall was gone and they kept the rest for a storage shed. They had to be selling the front sheet metal to guys with 2 ton trucks because I doubt that school districts shopped salvage yards.

I had to sell my soul to get Saturday off so I think I'll take the kids and make a day out of it. 49, I'll check for something that early. Timbuk, tell me more about the fiberglass. You caught my attention on that one.
