    Linnie - two words. Absolutely STUNNING!!

    That's possibly one of the most beautiful interiors in the world. Enjoy it. You deserve it. :)

    Glad to see the resto's back on track Linnie.

    That is one the smartest interiors I have ever seen. I can see more business coming for those guys!

    Well done. :cool:

    Linnie ..... do the photos mean you are picking up the Bus or have these been taken by the trimmer?
    Looks very nice either way ......you know the quickest way back to wherever you reside is via Gunnedah ....just ask Woz and Alice, Necro, Emby or Lorraine ...or even Mum and Dad

    Dallas and Neville from Daltrim at Ashmore did the trim and their very tidy work speaks volumes, they are patient, generous and kind. I have to finish off a few things on the dash, pick up a glove box and an under dash tray for starters but can survive without them. Not sure what to do about ashtray hole but i'm sure we can sort that out somehow.

    The awesome thing about the interior is the carpets are velcroed in and come out easily when I'm carrying plants and sandy beach trips, lets face it, its gunna need to wear well, cause it'll be on the road heaps.

    My girl is being picked up today by Steve from Kombi Rescue. She makes the journey on the back of his tray to Annangrove, Sydney (my visit to Gunnedah will have to wait a while, sorry Doc). I am hoping to get her onto the road post haste, although we'll have to see how much work she needs.

    I am willing to give away (to a good home) a 10 year old female Blue Heeler and a 1 year old female human being for fear they will soil the interior. Dan reckons my bluey should travel in a cat cage in the back, not likely as she is the size of a wombat.

    Words don't do it justice, you deserve to have everything turn out just right after all you have been through, so glad you didn't give up.

    all roads lead to Gunnedah, I'll get there one day Doc.

    Pix have been taken by trimmer and bus has now been cling-wrapped (don't ask) and is on the back of mechanics truck on its way south, eta friday Sydney.

    I'm praying for the rain to stop (we are minus two windows thus the aforementioned cling wrap) and checking the BOM website as I write.

    KC folks please wave if you see her and if any bits fall off just PM me!

    thanks Mish, i nearly gave up last winter, but then I wondered what I would drive my children to school in. and I could imagine ours smiles when coasting around town, and I love kombis, and what would we take camping and what would we put the boards on and what would I go up to F3 doing 80kms in to piss off the other 3 lanes of traffic?????

    Giving up just didn't cut it. And i hear today there's still quite a bit missing off the old girl (all the original parts that were flogged off by KIP) so we're not out of the woods just yet... i need to buy another '70 lowlight for parts (thanks to KIP the adventure never ends)

    She's 40 next year and it will be a HUGE party!
