    I decided to give Jimbo a little bit of love since I had moved back to the parentals homestead, increased disposable income and all that...

    Anyway, here are some pics...

    Before the resto began;

    I thought your bus looked good before your resto Jon. Now will wait patiently and see the end result.

    Purple paint Ev?
    Someone is telling porky pies!

    Thanks for all the comments guys, the colour scheme is a combination of two Ford XR8 colours, citric acid and toxic.

    He has been in the panel shop since April and only recently has there been any visible progress. Not that Iam complaining, getting all painted, straightened and some rust work done for the massive sum of $4000.

    He WILL be ready by Old Bar so I guess the unvailing will be then...
