Had a couple of hours spare today in between other stuff so had a little play in the shed
I’ve now removed the engine lid, rear hatch, front bumper and chopped most of the bottom of the front
Also scrapped the insulation of the rear parcel shelf, it’s a bit rusty under there, found a few holes

At the moment It’ll just be bits of cleaning up and rust removal. Work out a shopping list. An hour here and there, all adds up

Unfortunately the only thing that’s been done is shit has been building up around it!
It’s been a crazy year, can’t believe it’s been a year since!
Hopefully back on it soon

Guys I’m desperate to get on it but life keeps getting in the way. Unfortunately its been tucked back in the corner. I did however clean all the shit out of it, removed the last couple of windows and pulled the headliner out since last update but no pictures as there’s not much to see.
Definitely plan to start on some welding this year tho

Well in the unlikely event of me actually getting this bus on the road in 2 yrs there ain’t no chance of me driving it to Valla.
It’s going to be original running gear, don’t think I’d get enough time of work. Besides someone will need to be the designated drinker

Unfortunately no walk in rego on this bus, will need an inspection as the plate has been reassigned and no paperwork.
