    Was very happy with result but unfortunatly made the rest of the bus look tired, so I decided to do the hole bus. This was going to be hard due to space in my garage so it came down to doing her pannel by pannel or side by side. AAhhh

    sliding door

    After a bit of sanding and exploring i found out why it was so heavy.......... bog heaps of it.
    Found that it had been hit and someone leveld it back up with about 6mm of bondo. I had an old one i found in a paddock down south, it was my second choice but turned out to be heaps better than the one on it[​IMG]
