    Hi guys
    Its been a while missed you all at Bus stop this year next year fingers crossed
    Anyhow finally got onto my dormi getting a bit sick of camping in the red panel
    I always tell people they rust from inside there like an iceburg theres always more underneath
    WELL this has not let me down was going to keep patina but will have to blow some paint on and keep stipes some how
    Will try to post regular if i get the time which i have a lot of at the moment
    Getting it ready for sandblast underneath (no panels) only in joints

    Will keep you posted on Instagram #dormimacca lot easier than posting here @beerdoc67 my user name

    And then you did....... well done! :)

    Looking forward to the progress pics on this one.

    I imagine beer taps are running quite dry at the moment in CoVidoria, so the progress should be faster than usual. ;)

    My 71 needed a lot of front chassis rail work. The front of these old buses really likes to rust.

    Will look awesome when done and be a very useful camper. Looking forward to seeing it at Valla.
