New project 51 barndoor panel

Post by craig_rose » Wed Aug 20, 2014 7:06 pm

8) 8) 8) right boys and girls I sold my 55 nearly finished project to buy a more family friendly bay westy (lovely bus) but hated it so I've just sold that and had a deal with the top man Ben (busben) as you prob know him for the 51 panel he has for sale I bought it over the phone via the photos he has, to say I'm excited and can't wait to get stuck into this project is an understatement :alien: just gonna say watch this space!

I'd know what I'd like to see with it, just because of how cool it looks in its present state!

Good purchase and we hope your new ride and projects thread will be constantly updated.

Hated your Bay Westy? I loved mine!
