It went away and returned and is now with Dave...but in the meantime Dave did not get all the parts..
Lots of promises.. Dave and Matt have done a lot more work..... but a lot of items were not provided so it has come to a halt..

Scott hopefully still has them..but I do not have contact details for him or where he has gone..
The new owner nor Dave can contact him..

Just off getting the exhausts fitted then road tests and finished.
It has been a long haul after so many of the hard to find and expensive parts were lost when Scott did a runner. Lost time and pushed the budget sky high. I didn't want to compromise on quality so we had everything handmade and customised. All credit to Dave and Matt for keeping going.
Beautiful interior by Ken's Customs.

Can't wait to get her on the road.

I visited the site again to get some of the original pictures so thought as there had been interest I'd post an update.

Those were RCB / Ken' customs trim pictures.
I have had one bus completed by and another two buses at David Haywood's being restored and seen the work David/Matt has carried out at regular intervals.

Who do you insure your buses with if you don't mind my asking? I live in Italy and am starting to get it registered etc. now with a view to having it brought out here asap. I had hoped to drive thru France on an inaugural trip but with the virus looks like that's out of the question now. Is there a recommended insurer for a reconstructed bus?
