Can you guess who's??

Hi guys,

Managed to get my bus to the garage on the weekend.
Well happy, now that I can finally make a start!!
But where do I start 8O every time I look at it I think what the hell
have I got myself in too!!
Some say it will look great, but most say scrap it or use it as a dog house, I say get every panel done save as much money as I can to do it and hope for the best!

Tony c helped me on cutting the cargo floor out so we could see what I was up against!
Not a pretty sight :? But I have seen worse, I'll put some pics up as soon as my mrs replaces the camera she lost on her weekend pi$$ up :evil:

Cheers all
marco Ps: Thanks tony c

Hello campers,

Well it's been a few months since my last update. Not because i haven't done anything, Just been a bit lazy loading the pics on. :oops:
Plus tony (busbug&kg) keeps shouting at me :director: PUT SOME PICS UP!!!!!!!

So far iv'e cut the old chassis out and managed to get a replacement one out of a 67 i think from cris (snotty)At low E nuff club.
It was a great help to get that section from cris as mine was beyond repair!!

Out with the old 8O


Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This is the section i got from cris.


Image


Image


As you can see it's been cut in two between torsion bar and the rear outrigger on both sides.
So then i started to clean this up and keep what i wanted to work with.


Image

Image

Few hrs later i was left with this.

Image

Not much hey :?

More tomorrow.

thanks marco
