1956 RHD Splitscreen aka noodles

Post by BlastingDiePast »

So here is a 1956 RHD bus.

In for the now standard BDP restoration works of blasting, stripping, welding and painting.

Should be fun!

Comes with a few green panels so no long waiting times for shipping, as Shane the chef says let’s get cook.

It really is not, look closely at the dog legs and panels you will see they are ALL wrong.

The chassis has now had its new sections welded in and top hats, I beams, inner sills etc so it has all been remedia blasted and epoxy primed in colour matched sand green.
