67 11 window aka Pete

Post by BlastingDiePast » Tue Apr 03, 2018 9:23 pm

In for the works! Plus a few upgrades

It’s had a whack or two over the years, plus it was a wood storage bus in Sweden for many years before ending up in Wales via FBI and then to its current owner many years ago. Used as it should be it’s time for a refresh.

Nice work BDP, looks like youve got a relatively solid bus there.

Keep up the work, I will be watching closely as our bus is undergoing a make over as well :)
