Re: South African Splitscreen query

If this is a 1967/1969 built bus, its not what most would deem as a splitscreen bus. A chassis number would help decipher what it really is. Where are you getting the dates from? If ...

Re: Single Cab chassis advice...

Re: Potential New Ownership

As above, I've driven all over europe and never broken down once ! Maintenance and being considerate to an older vehicle goes a long way.

Personally i would also stick with drums & a servo - no need for more IMO.

Re: Headlining Installer Recommendations (South)

I was in a similar boat Jim, and the same 2 i tried. Got a lift both ways in the end, seemed the best option.
