    Hey Vinny yeh i just changed my signature! i havnt even seen the bus yet but should do before Easter. I have been serching every where for photos of aDevon interior the link posted on the thread is about as good as ive seen and i love it. I would pay good money for templates!!! I am hoping to go and see a local Devon that Split1 knows some time in the next week or so. My interior has been completly stripped all that is there is the two Hammocks. :(

    Sadly not my friend...
    No suprises but the panelbeater is taking longer than expected, but its all good...gives me some time to save more pennies on a student wage! when its in paint I'll get pics right away, don't you be worrying that im going to leave you hanging...

    you know you've been slack when your resto thread gets to the third page...
    here is a bit of the work we have done recently.
    pics were taken on phone-sorry about bad quality.

    passengers front , lower door.. only had a few tiny spots, always turns out to be alot more when you start poking around...

    some pics of the front windscreen area, this was a bitch of a job.

    sanded back to bare metal this panel today, found a bit of bog, no suprises, will need to do a bit of panelbeating here

    john managed to pull this side out ( looks okay now, will be alot nice with a thin strip of bog.

    will be doing the fibreglass bogging over the welds and then a minimal skim on the panels to get it nice and straigth this week. also pulled up the drivers floor todday, shame that the bustop panels only cover so much area, will be having to make up some pieces for under the gearstick area.

    John's kids are mean. Your Kombi really quite a long way from being a steaming turd. However, props to the artist. Quite a nice sketch, that. Also, Kombi looks wicked. How did your search for fabric go?

    Max Auto- that would be awesome, il pm you. :)

    I agree the kids are a little shits haha...
    fabric search so far hasn't been successful, havent' really done too much either, only searched on the uk forums, still to go to the places recommended in Bris.

    John did a little bit of work this week, got one panel nice and almost ready for paint, found a bit more rust, made a few little pieces up... here are some pics. again they are with the phone so sorry about the quality...

    nice and smooth mmmm
