    Back on the road - the car hasn't been buffed yet so should come up even better.

    This bus looks so good! I love the ice bucket on the bulkhead! Did you cut that bucket in half and add a new flat backing so that its wall mountable??

    Paint is 2pac now. First job was acrylic..

    It's at the panel shop now getting a few things tidied up and should get her back soon.

    Yep, I cut the bucket in half and welded a back and a couple of mounts to the bulkhead.

    Thanks for all the comments :)

    Thanks, yeah it's a shame to sell her but. I have just purchased a new bike and have my eye on a new set of wheels to play with..

    So Unfortunately the old girl has to go..

    Great story, great bus! I use to work on cars a lot, but that was about 25 years ago and these days there is no way I would buy something needing any serious work. I like how this bus has been put together - now if I can only pull some money together ...

    Yeah agree mate... I won't ever do another resto.. The time and effort that goes into it all..

    If you can buy one that's been done properly you are better off in my opinion.
