  1. Very nice! I'm looking forwards to this level of luxury!!

    Do you mind if i ask where you got / how you coloured the instrument dials? I had mine out a little while ago and they're a bit tarnished in places

  11. ive eventually got my bumpers and overiders back today. im going to play aroud with the spacing of the overiders to get the look how i want them. have got a set for the back aswell but i think im going to leave them off. dont think they look that good on the rear end when i offered them up.

  12. I've got the van booked in to have the carbs set up and brakes checked next week at a local garage. So my bud is bringing a low loader home today so we can take it to the garage.
    So i started her up, gently pushed the stick in to first, gave her some gentle revs and eased off the clutch.......... And Take off!!! :)
    Only drove her 20 yards, but it felt great!!
    All the work that has been done, and now it feels so close to getting her on the road!!

    And it was my first time ever driving a camper !!

  15. Just come across this thread and I have to say your bus is fab. Like your porker seats I think I may go cream with mine.
    What did you make your cup holders out of?
     
  16. Looks awesome chap! Top marks!

    I have a 79 tin top that I am having to rebuild from the bottom up! If it looks half as good as this when finished I will be well happy!
