    Hi Niko,

    Coming along nicely. I am about to build a rotisserie to paint underneath, can you please tell me the measurement from the ground to to the pivot and also what ground clearance you need so the bus can spin? Can you turn yours easy enough by yourself? Cheers mate.

    Hi Rudy, cheers mate getting ready for all the sanding next, The rotisserie works great one hand will spin it on its side easy. It won't go all the around just on to its side which is all you need.
    I'll get some measurements tomorrow for you.

    Ok so the rottsserie is 1030cm from the ground to the pivot point. I have added some holes every 25mm to fine tune it for easy turning too. Also the frame is off the ground on wheels which are 3"

    Hope this helps :)

    On to the cargo doors, bottoms are roached so replacement metal time. Used the gerson panel from Dasresto great fit!! Blasted the good bits and cut out the bad :)
    Another coat of epoxy for the inside then its reskining time.

    On to the rear end, out with the stock engine cradle as its way too low for my liking, going with the wolfberg style pipe and I gain 65mm of ground clearance.
