    yeah theres no doubt that its brown, its the original factory colour tho, its even called bronco brown:

    basically brick red, but i like it.

    might be hard working out interior colours tho. I'll be asking advice with that.

    Oh wow!

    I know this kombi - belonged to a mate's ex boyfriend and lived nearby. I heard recently that he had sold it. Looking absolutely stunning now!

    Has the former owner seen the pics yet?

    Hi Goblin,

    Yeah I'm still in touch with the previous owner via email, I got a long with him well. He's not currently around but when he comes back to Adelaide later in the year he'll come down and see it and we'll go for a spin. I'm not far from where it was purchased, so would be local to you.

    Hey Chris, yeah that was Daniel. Top guy, did a great job too. Couldn't be happier. I've just ordered a few more bits and pieces. for some parts. Roof lining still isn't done but I will let you know when I get it done.

    I'll keep my eye out for you I'm usually in a white toyota with "COWTIPPERS" on the front. So if you see me waving, you know why.

    Got some new underseat rubbers from Roy, before pics:

    where the rubbers go behind the seat all that was left was some glue, took a bit of work to get most of it off:

    I think I might have to hit my rubber mats with some tyre black or something. that should make them look a little neater.

    Great bus!

    Howdy Vaspa76,

    Love your bus, I had a looksie at this one when it came up too.

    It was just around the corner from my place so had seen it around a bit, used to catch the silver limo with its owner!

    Looks really nice and I want to chin-wag with ya coz I want to do the same to my 76' Flo....

    ....also just noticed Herman in the background, I have just scored a lowlight too! We hills dwellers have much in common me thinks...

    Should order from Roy at the same time to save postage;)

    Love the parcel tray pic, see how the corners make it look like it is almost sparkling :)
