I know what you mean, went for a spin in the '53 last night, did about 30 miles, not the same when you're not on a 'mission' with 9 other busses though!! :happy11:

Cant wait to roll to BVF next weekend now, need a dub fix again!!! 8) :lol:

That would be the downfall in a Firetec system... we'd have spent about 3 hours cleaning the foam from the engine bay just to get going again... pah! gaffa tape rules!!

:lol: :P

Finally got round to collecting them last night! Will hopefully get one mounted on to the wheel shelf next week so i can drop it in the bus.

Just thought, the wheel shelf is great for keeping tools when your spare is too big to fit in the engine bay!! 8) 8) 8)

Look a little more closely... :wink: Im pretty sure its a shot of the bus before Chez worked on it - look at the rust pattern by the cab door hinge and on the front of the roof and front panel. Also, you can see the (good) photoshop work on the side panel where the windows were. Im pretty sure its on Rodent's build thread on his site somewhere..? 8)
