Thanks for the comments, Beatts it would be nice to swap that dove blue gate for a sea blue one, I think it would be a shame to paint it, I will have a go at painting the rear gate, I actually like the greenish drivers side gate as it is, cant wait to get it regoed and get it back home and lower it and put that bullet hole door on it, the wheels need to be black or maybe some mags on it, and put it to work , got a rear garden to tidy up.

what a tour de force- congratulations seems to small a thing to say. For those of us who have none of your skills the transformation does seem truly wizard like.

Heres to the "Wizz"
the invisible and the non existent look very much alike!

The Wizard Story:
A few years ago a man moved amongst us from afar.
None of us recognised him or much less the powers that he possessed.
Over time his powers became apparent and he began to display these powers in even greater ways.

Now many undertake a restoration project and some succeed but Wiz can take two rusty pieces of metal and build a Kombi, beavering away in his shed, on his own, solving problems along the way.
He has powers to locate bits of Kombis others discard, the power to drag them home and then form them into a rolling, driving registered Kombi.
Many have experienced his powers here in Adelaide, from welding new floors, engine hangers, outriggers, long side sills to building beams, roof racks, fixing mis-aligned doors, accident damage, registering the unregisterable, spray painting, and this is just on my Kombis!
Many, many others have experienced his powers at work on their buses.
All hail to Wiz as another bus rolls out of his workshop, running, registered and driving as it should.


The ‘electric internet’ describes a Wizard as thus:
They have the ability to know when to act and when not to act, they have an acute sense of what will and will not work

Thanks NOS Steve and Colin, Ute got reg on Wednesday, starter shit itself Wednesday afternoon, got the brakes pressure blead by Shane at CarTeck, and he put another starter in it, drove it today about 30 klms and it drives pretty good for a throw together bus, very happy with it, got home and lowered the front 35mm , happy with how it looks now, Brother not happy he cant get here to pick it up, guess I will have to drive it around a bit. Stopped on the Cubby hut for a while coz im not sure I should be spending a bunch of money right now, I'll find something to do. Ian

Nothing better than commercial caps on clean white wheels. Fucking deluxes and all their fancy chrome ain’t got nothing on that look. Well done mate, let me know if your brother needs someone to drive it.

A couple of year ago we all would have thought you were mad, now we’re all just thinking “yeah looks like a solid base for a Wiz build”.
