    All that is left now is the roof. That is a pretty major job - there is a donor roof waiting for her. She is just beautiful and it was great to drive her again last night.
    Hoping Berry will be good weather this weekend, I hate driving her in the rain.

    Wow,

    Very nice Mel - just the roof to do now or was that done too?

    Whoops, I must not have turned over the page to read the last comment.

    Maybe a job after the next tax return?

    Still from average height - Little Red looks sensational.

    Yep, your curtains were nice and they complement the interior to have them.

    She looks great by the way.

    Thanks Kai - they have done pretty well - I might have to actually clean them. I think I have done it once.

    I am going to put the curtains back in - gave them a wash tonight.

    Nice looking bus there Melissa. You took a fairly standard 11 window Kombi and slowly, with your special little touches and a lot of paint, have made it a very nice looking bus. Looks great with the deluxe trim too. Maybe a little lowering? ;)

    She looks undressed without her special curtains so I am glad they are going back. What a difference the paint and panel have made and I just love the deluxe trim :heart:

    She is looking stunning Mel.

    Looking forward to seeing her (and you and everyone else as well) at Berry on Sunday.

    Little Red is looking sensational now Melissa! I reckon her curtains should just finish her off nicely. :cool:

    Don't forget pics! ;)

    Sorry to do this the wrong way around but here are some photos of her during the work on her passenger side and bum.
