awesome!saw your bus at the breeze and really liked it.its very easy to look at a bus at a show like that and just take it for granted makes you realise that it takes hard work and commitment not to mention blood sweat and tears that goes into creating summat like that.
i couldnt do it!

Cheers guys, much appreciated. I must admit i've never been as proud of something as the bus, the feeling you get when you are driving around in it on a good day is beyond description !
As for whats going in the back, i've just purchased the porka motor advertised in the for sale section, oh my god what have I done ?!!!!
Cheers, Shawn.

Very nice bus indeed :D -------mate you should have shown the pics when you first got it.............remember the classy zebra stripe interior 8O , not to mention those leaky pneumatics up front; boy the chap you got it off was one real classy fella who obviously had a degree in mechanics.
You've done us all proud creating a bus like this for us all to enjoy; keep up the good work 8)

Oh yeah, nearly forgot; I like the additional link about your wedding day, tee heee, I won't tell nicola :wink:
