thanx issy and yup i am proud of him he's done a great job. it was painted here on the drive and i think the s042 bit is the model of westfaliure interior but not really sure so if anyone can enlighten us then i would like to know. it has a turret pop top and is walkthrough. i want to put the interior back in although it is a little tatty in places but i think it is part of the busses history but shaggy wants to remake it all using original as a template. will make up our minds when it is through mot and registered in the uk. i can do the inside when it is on the road.

thanx guys and thanx crewcab for enlightening me :D thats more ammo for me to feed the hubby as reasons to keep it original. i have to say it looks abit tatty though mainly the wardrobe front and the trim which i know you can get new stuff. these seem to be cropping up everywhere now. :D love the colour of yours alexdundee i never have anything normal(see what i did to oour early bay :wink: you can just see the side in the photo.)

Great to see you have made so much progress.

Definately a good idea to keep the interior original spec, no harm in restoring the tatty bits.
