They make it look so easy :)

Great bus, great tread and a super great build, can't wait to see this one at Ben Pon next year.

Keep keeping on dude.
If it dont fit......use a bigger hammer.

Few little updates.
Firstly the last couple of details were finished for the walkthrough to be spot on.
Jeff knocked up some bulkhead supports (I choose to save my originals for my bulkhead/bench sofa) which Barndoor walkthroughs have by the doors. Only in doing so I realised they are different without the bulge. So Jeff made up another pair. Sorry mate :oops:

Mark 1 :?

The seat brackets were then added. These are for aesthetics only.

Photo links aren't working for me which is very disappointing as I'm following what you're doing with great interest. Not sure if the links are faulty it its just my vintage iPhone not coping...
