It's a super dooper lifterer upperer kombi lifting machine type gismo
Ask him where he got it, it's cool!
Motorcycle lift on steroids !!
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!
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
Well I guess like most restos, you always find something !! Bus is now on the rotisserie and there are a couple small rust repairs needed, that's all though.., phew !!
Bit of crud collected over the years
Bus is coming along nicely
Few more bits ready
Haven't been updating this but picked up the bus yesterday freshly painted and interior almost done, more piccies when I get time !
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.
Nooooooo way , I didn't , got a new dude and he's awesome, got the remaining seats and trim in today, ah the smell of leather ....,, lush ! Real happy this time mate !
Saw your old bus in manly the other day, did you sell it to someone from the beaches ? Hope your having fun with the beetle
Stuffed up the rat Steve
No mate, I sold it to a family in St Ives. Good to hear its been seen. Loving the beetle, great little car.
Yeah mate, would have been nice just to leave it as it was,
Not to worry, got another rat
low drag. ..eco model ?
Wait until you see the flared guards !!!!
Love what you have done. The colour is just beautiful.
Squidy, will be needing some work done on my interior, body/paint and a bit of electrical.
Any hot tips for good value/qualtiy workshops around the Northern Beaches?
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'.
