    Welcome to the club Rhys.

    I have worked in Tumut at the Paper Mill off and on since 2001.

    Have made many great friends there, two of which own Kombis.

    Paul and Chrissie from East Gilmore have a red bus and Geoff Moss's girl Emma from Adelong runs a coffee bus (Lucid) out of Wagga.

    We now live in the Campbelltown area of Sydney and often run down Wollongong and Kiama way with our bus on the weekend.

    See you on the road mate!

    Mark

    It’s a nickname that I’ve received due to my last name, being Dobbie (which I’ve always pronounce like Dhobi and not like the Harry Potter character) and the slang term for washing powder, being Dhobi Dust :D

    20210108_184431.jpg Hi guys, my name is Kristin, from Penrith. I have recently come into possession of a 1970 lowlight. It will be a slow rebuild, steep air-cooled learning curve. Plenty of rust to remove from the front half. Original color is Safari Beige.

    Welcome Kristin to the KC , It looks like a motley crew colour scheme ,hard to pick your Safari beige 12014. As you have ask questions, there are plenty of clever people on here that can help. Your not that far away from my self.
    You also have Bug N buses not that far from your self for mechanical work, You may want to find a Bentley book if you are planning on doing some work yourself. Curve can only go up.
    best of luck Wayne

    The floors and dog legs are in very good condition unfortunately the same can't be said for the roof and gutters 918DBBD2-97E5-45C0-8FA4-F4354956FAE1.jpeg

    Oh My:(:(. Was there a fibreglass lid above that destruction?
    I'm doubting the 76 build as that's not how they react metally wise!
    What's the plate behind the drivers seat say?
    Cheers

    Yep has a very poorly installed roof apparently it's an original campervan but with the way roof panel was butchered I don't think it was a professional conversion 7FC2A1C5-E42E-4973-AED6-131C5802B495.jpeg
