    Should have been known as BogBus in its previous life.

    That is terrible!

    theres nothing wrong with using bog most of the cars built have it, you just have to make sure that it is over sound solid metal not a load of rusty crap

    Split rebuild

    Incredible stuff, gives me insperation for my splitty rebuild, it needs identical repairs, I spous I was lucky when I bought mine it looked like a bucket of crap so I was under no delusions bout the amount of work needed, this is the most detailed & proffessional rebuild I've seen to date, thanks for sharing it with everone, cheers!

    could not resist it,it has been a long time since this bus looked whole,so we clamped on a long side.this bus looks so different from the 66 eleven window that i started with i know it may not be an original 13 window but it is as close to it as you will get.the long side that will be going on will have the 10 louvers facing inwards correct for a 66.

    Good job, but one mistake , all 13 windows in Australia had the louvers facing outwards. And they only had 8 not 10.
    Is that the Creative Engineering long side, looks good.

    Just stunning work. An absolute amazing job.
    Oh... and I can only count 9 louvers (must be the heat)!
