    so after a bit of a break while I saved up some money, we have some progress!

    have been doing all the final sanding of the door jams, nooks and cranies, you don't realise how much sanding there is until you get stuck in, anyway, got some paint on the top halves of the doors, just the white. the bottom half will be green. Tomorrow should see the rest of the top half of the bus painted!

    Not a great deal to report on but got most of the van wet rubbed ready to go, top half should be painted first thing in the morning.

    Vinny,
    I am impressed with the colour choices. That is a tastefull combination whilst being a bit different.
    It will be good to see under sunlight instead of fluros to get a propper idea of the real colour.
    Good job Vinny and Crash. (BTW, I am not telling Vinny to go crash it. Thats his rust man!)
