Re: Wolfsburg Samba UK 23 window

Well this has been a long hard slog(just like them all) but we're about a week away from handing her over to Sir Gurney for one of his fantastic engines! This bus now looks superb! We were going to fit up with the original trim but it would of just taken too much work to get it to be perfect enough ...
