    Yeah, don't beat yourself up. Bus will still be bloody loud :D
    I covered everything including two layers of 4kg/m2 sound deadening on the floor under the carpet. Still gives me a headache after driving for a while.
    But the stereo sound good when parked up at least. :rolleyes:

    It is hard to beat what you had mate
    You can’t just “tweak it”
    It will have to be Talbot Yellow or something else left wing

    If your struggling for colour choice and you where pretty happy with what you had,why change it o_Ostick to what you know or like. Or as Barry mentions above :rolleyes: left wing colour choice.

    It was Seablue/Cumulus white from factory, it’s a great colour that is classic/timeless etc, but a little bit of spice in the paint would be nice. I can’t do it the same... maybe a candy paint this time .
    I’m not looking at going far out, that would be a lime green/ white or pearl orange/white etc for me.

    Lots happening, re doing cargo door skins and engine lid support as I'm not happy with the work I did 4 years ago. I have a local bloke who is doing body and paint early next year for a good price, happy about that.

    I've had all my Deluxe trim polished up and the B45's have had the treatment too, they looks great.

    Heaps of other things going on, should be in colour by mid next year or before, might even make Valla .

    I'll be selling all the glass from this bus , going brand new throughout , look out for a post soon If you're interested, a few complete pop outs will be in it too.

    5 months since an update, there has been a lot of downs so the bus has been in mothballs . Now I have 3 weeks away from work and I'll attempt to get back in to my fast progress usual working habit.
    I have the fiddly ,shitty jobs now, really trying to get gaps nice as I've seen quite a few new "Resto's" recently and It's made me push even more for quality detail.
