The resto has been documented in VW Camper & Commercial over past few issues, updating to now in next issue ..
try searching andybugs on facebook? am sure he has loads of stuff up there somewhere...
twas basically a rusting shell with loads of stuff pillaged from it for spares /donor ..
HOT NEWS
The pair will be re-united at Brighton Breeze so the air cooled community can appreciate it properly (not tucked out of site in a Hall) - and allegedly the cake will actually be cut as we all sing Happy birthday! Andy is working hard to get even more in place by then!

I bought a couple of recent issues and it was only mentioned in the text. No pictures.
Just interested to see an 'as bought' picture.

Lol... I think the term "restored" is stretched a bit for Rikki's bus.
