    Mr Dak,

    Try using postimage.org.

    Its free, no major add issues and it works well - at the moment.

    2018!!!!!!!!

    The year of the VW resto!!

    Straight into it on new years day, front end out and rear end out.

    I've wire wheeled the underside of 50 years of dirt and am half way through spraying on Etch primer and the Ill be laying down Upol Raptor ute bed liner, It's a really nice product that will hide poo poo's and give a really tops soundproof / waterproof seal.

    It will be tinted with body colour for outboard of the chassis rails and grey for between the rails, sort of factory look.

    I expect to get this done in the next few weeks... hold me to it! .

    Mate. Pretty sure we can band together to find you an old stock 1500 and stock exhaust. Will keep costs down. You will be happy pushing out 25hp at the wheels wont you ;)

    With you on that Brad.
    Maybe head down to the railway yards at night and jump a few grafitti artists n steal their aerosol cans for paint job.
    You got any spakfilla we can divert from a building job for final shaping?

    Wire wheeled the under body, Etch primered it , seam sealed with Sika and painted with Upol Gravitex . Easy process that should last for years, I hve no idea If I'm doing it right, but this is how it's going to be!
    The Gravitex is paintable so I'll put the body colour in the wheel arches and outside of the rails.

    OH dear , nearly 6 months has passed and nothing else done, luck I have next week off work and it's dedicated to the bus.
    Hopefully I can update this thread as I go. I'm at the stage where I'm really out of my comfort zone with finishing bodywork and It's easy to waste money and time with a novice approach. Finding the point where to hand it over to a shop is something I'm struggling with.
    How far do you go when you have a bare shell, all I wanted was a rust free painted bus. Bloody shiny resto's!!

    Hi Chris.
    If you want to run through options or processes give a yell.
    No reason you can't do it yourself.

    Sorry Cbus, I didn't reply, I haven't been on line for months. I sure will be in touch If I need help mate, Thanks for the offer.

    Done a bit lately, 2 weeks on the engine bay and rear engine shelf. Thanks to Bob M for the OG metal for the repair, I have a bit of Pat's Samba in this bus as do others!

    I made up Dollies from Bunnings shit, works awesome , should have done it years ago.

    Ready for Body now, she's a slow build this one but I'm still enjoying it, nice to take 4 years off the VW scene TBH.

    A few solid hours with the wire wheel of death and there is more to prime and top coat. Dynamat going down on pretty much everything.
    I have a good body guy lined up for the outside , I need to sell a motorbike to get it all rolling... will happen soon I hope.

    I'll eat my words, I chucked two boxes of Chinese Ping jing down in the bus. I said I'd never use it but the budget demands it. I've left the Dynamat for the engine area and cabin, cargo floor and side walls should be fine.
    There will be insulating foam and then Marine carpet over the top so this bus will be very quiet. There is 40kg's of sound deadner, better than 100kg's of BOG right! .

    Don’t beat yourself up too quick, I’ve read reviews that suggest pingjing is better than dynamat

    I think there is a YouTube video with a comparison test too...
