Seems like a shame to actually weld these in...

6-Leg Middle Seat

6-leg middle seat, used on all "Wolfsburg" buses until early 1956 , also referred to as a "barndoor" middle seat, which isn't totally correct, as non-barndoor buses in 55 and 56 had them as well.

Here's a shot of the extra set of outriggers that earlier buses have. These were made by Alan Schofield - http://www.ahschofield.co.uk/

I now have all of the outriggers, top-hats and I-beams cut out, and the new ones setup set in place - looks like I'm ready to weld, doesn't it? Nope, not yet. I still have to reset the geometry of the frame rails.

I need to know what this section is *supposed* to look like, both before and after the installation of the center piece.

Tonight's progress - got the I-beams and outriggers mostly cut out. I still need to finish cleaning off the old welds and whatnot. In this picture, I've used two straps to pull the sides of the bus inwards to contact the inner rockers.

This is one of the last really rusty sections of this bus - the lower sections where the frame meets the beam. This area has been repaired once previously, from what I can tell, it was prior to 1969.

Here's a shot of the front "top hat" section in a trial fit. I was able to disconnect the shift front and rear shift couplers and lift the shift rods and slide the frame piece on. It was either that or remove the transmission and remove the shift rod altogether
