    Well done jman. Looks like it was a tough task. Mine was repaired some time before I bought him and they only did up to the windscreen seal. Didn't last too long so I took the winscreen out and did it properly too.

    no welding

    It did not require ant new metal as there was plenty of good metal still there. Just had to treat it and fill a couple of minor holes. I still gotta blend that paint in. Although I might leave it, do a bit more rust removing and body smoothing then whack a full coat of paint all over with enough matting agent to give aged look.
    A big "Thanks Heaps, Dude" goes out to Hammers for having my bus in his shed for that 2 or 3 weeks
