The polishing marathon continues.

The Vw Jim brake servo has been stripped cleaned up and polished!

Still to come, deluxe trim, headliner bows, rear window corners/rear hatch trim, coat hooks etc

Awaiting a large box of new parts but once here the brake system will get made, polished... and installed to the bus.
