    Last time I saw this bus it was in a million pieces on the shed floor just before christmas. It's great to see it all back together. You both must be pretty happy with the end result.

    That red upholstery sure does come up a treat.

    I can't take too much credit at all....weekend help only from me. Most of the stuff I did was destructive - eg. Paint/interior/glue removal/stripping

    The blood, sweat and tears put in by Marcus to make sure every last detail was up to standard meant untold hours (I'm sure in the 1000-2000 hours range)

    Very excited to finally see this project Shurms. Amazing effort.

    Was that the original interior colour scheme?

    Most of the trimming was done by a guy called Tony who's doing all the work on my resto project too, he's fantastic.

    All the seat covers and door panels are TMI I think.

    Lovely lovely Bus.
    Is it in Wilga ST? Opposite the golfcourse?
    I worked at that course for 20 years.
    I sold a splitty to a bloke who rented space in the greenhouse paddock opposite the course. Pommy bloke I think nice guy. Is that the Marcus you refer to? Mitchell
