    So after a very long 11 months today Buster was sent to Volkshome. Mega excited!!
    It is the start of a complete overhaul inside and out. Its going to be expensive, dont care, its going to take time, don't care, its going to be challenging, love a challenge and fingers crossed most of it goes well.

    Just cant wait to be driving him again.

    Nice looking van. If at all possible keep your pistons & liners as the MV pistons & liners are NLA & the Chinese crap will not last 10 minutes. DJ high compression pistons are still available from UK

    Being resprayed in the same COB metallic gold, or going for a longer lasting 2pac solid colour? :rolleyes:

    Some previous “professional” repairs to my bus were done using a non factory spec coating.

    Years later, now the clear finish coat is flaking off, (the original paint elsewhere is still good), so it’s forced me into a total respray, to get it back to looking like it did.......:(

    No I am going for a white and then vinyl wrap decals towards the rear end side panels.

    Possibly, but this time it’ll be a “chequebook resto”, like BUS_TER is sensibly doing. ;)
