:wink: :wink: :wink:
super nice mate .. chuffed for ya :D :D
Ha ha, It's a really nice bus for sure. Never thought it would fit on the cover of a mag though ;-) So it's about time now, It's been in a mag, you can slam it now, Paint it, get some wheels, and see it go straight back on the front page of another mag! :cheers:
