OK this will probably be a drawn-out topic with infrequent updates and lots of excuses, but having a build topic here might also help push me along with the project... My member intro and Kombi history is here: http://forums.kombiclub.com/showthread.php?34642-1969-Sunliner-camper-on-the-Sunshine-Coast And this is what we are starting with: I am still not entirely sure what direction this build will take, but it had to start somewhere - so I've just spent about three hours pressure-washing the exterior, to see what we actually have to work with. I got the idea to pressure-wash it after reading another KC members topic in which he revealed old signwriting on his panel, and I thought it might also let me see some of the past history of mine. Also it seems to be a good first step towards seeing whether a bus is suitable for the current in theme of 'patina' And so it did - the dodgy home-job green paint that a previous owner had slapped on went flying, showing me the dodgy home-job prep. Looks like this bus wasn't treated with a lot of care in a past life. Also looks like we've gone straight past 'patina' and landed on 'rat' :lol: Anyway, I kind of like the way it looks after the clean-up, although there's still a lot to do - haven't done the top-most bit of the poptop, nor the interior.
