Just one word Brad, Bew T Full.
Yes, wicked! A 4 year labour of love and an awesome result.
Great result Brad. You should be really proud of all the work.
Brad... its a credit to you mate. Now we are living up this way will have to catch up for a feed & a few beers.
Stunning bus buddy. Enjoy... Ohhh how is that wallet going?
Ironical my wallet is made by couch guitar straps using Lowlight Red Vinyl so it understands.
But yeah, it would be good to catch up at some stage mate. Put a face to the name.
I'll shout the beers then haha
Thanks for sharing it.
Hay thats a nice Hx of the progress. Would love to see more of the finished product.
Brad, one word
Sow now I expect you will wimp it and have a cover when camping.
Lots of fruitbats at Canungra.
Probably flying foxes as well
There is nothing wrong with covering the precious metal up when camping
There certainly will be a lot of fruit bats at Canungra, thats who i am going to hang out with.
The bus generally gets left to fend for itself, at Sawtell Busstop the rain was heavy enough in the week leading up to it that a tarp went over the top. But it dries out pretty quick.
My biggest issue is the cab door windows. Terrible system of keeping water out.
Split drivers with safaris dont expect dry feet
I cannot even enjoy them properly at the moment. The drivers side safari hinge has begun to delaminate. I am keeping it closed until I find the time to remove it, pull it apart, tap holes and screw it back together.
Let me guess. Creative Engineering?
Yep sir indeed. Unfortunately they are from the pre welded Creative engineering days.
Bit disappointing though, I have emailed both creative and Busstop where I got them and I have had no response about the best method of fixing / replacement glue. So I am doing my own fix. I am running about $3k of Creative gear on my bus too.
Very poor service from them, I would not recommend their gear to anyone else in future.
Excuse my ignorance but what is it your talking about, I am having trouble trying to work it out, can you show a pic or explain what the part is.
Front safari winows. the frame used to be glued to the hinge and sooner or later they come apart as has just started happening on mine. common fault that has been rectified on new sets by welding the hinges on.
They glue a steel hinge to a chrome frame?
Stainless to polished aluminum. but yes that is what they used to do. considering the force they would be under at 100km/hr it seems ludicrous.
Separate names with a comma.
