    Hey there everyone,
    Very close to purchasing my very first bus, and flaming excited about it to be honest. Very fresh to the restoration world too, but I figure there's nothing that can't be learnt when enthusiasm and time are on your side. Just Wondering if there are any kind folks around the Bendigo region who'd be willing/able to take me under there wing for some advice/help during the process!
    All things being even I should be picking the bus up within the month, just in time for 7 weeks of Uni holidays.

    Cheers guys,
    Dan

    Looking out for the pics when you get the bus.
    Get yourself a repair manual and start reading!

    Well.... It's official. I've joined the club. Bringing the bus back as we speak and couldn't be more excited. Everyone has been really supportive, and I'm really lucky to have the family support of my partner, who have donated their large (and empty) shed for the work to begin. Stay tuned for pictures people.
