    Squidy,

    Love the bus and especially that lifter - its awesome and compact...do you feel safe working under the van with it up on the hoist above your head?

    Like that shiny green lowie panel you have stashed in the corner!

    Cheers,

    Yeah real safe, I'm a doofus when it comes to mechanics, so I won't spend a lot of time under there :) got somebody else to get under it and do the dangerous stuff ha ha. It's not up there long anyway :)

    Looks great Steve. Must be happy. I hope you didn't take it to the same interior mob as Florence. I just remember that you weren't happy with the end result last time after such a long wait.:)

    Hey Blake, got no real tips for the northern beaches mate, used a trimmer only and wouldn't use him again. Got my bus painted and trimmed up in Newcastle. For panel and paint maybe try Taylor and Botham in brookie, heard there work is pretty good but can be a little in the exy side. Also a couple of trimmers in brookie, I have spoke to but not used. Never used anyone for electrical but maybe speak to Steve at Mckellar, he has given me the number of a kombi friendly auto electrician in the past. Let me know if I can be of anymore help mate.

    Awesome, cheers for that. Still having issues with the kombi up in Qld so may look at getting everything done up there before I drive it back to Syd'.
