Yeah he's doing well, just wish I could do more myself, not from the lack of wanting to, just the fact that my job currently has me in Italy and now could be off to Canada, for good!

Mark,

I do take my camera every time I go near it, unfortunately it's not me doing the work....... :lol:

Plans are to get it back on its wheels, painted and retrimmed hopefully this year!

Yeah it was a solid bus, well compared to what you e been working on, this would of been a weekend resto for a man of your talents. Well done on what you've achieved, amazing.
