  1. superb, looks different but that's what owning a bus is about, individuality & the detail is spot on :D
     
  2. yes
    i dont like "grey metallic diesel" like we say here in Estonia
    it is when your car is boring and ordinary and everybody have same model
    most popular grey metallic diesel cars we have here skoda octavia and toyota avensis

    That is fantastic @MeelisV and is my new favourite van :)

    I love custom paintwork.

  6. hi folks
    its now long time after last post
    but there is no big news like "bus is done" or like that

    i got bus out from paint shop and after some struggle with clear coat and holes in it - we won
    there is now 6x2 = 12 layers clear on it

    cleaned some windows and new seals on

  8. Welcome back. Have missed your posts. Those chrome bumpers is nice.
    Are you going to paint the caravan in matching paint?

  9. Hi
    glad to be back too.
    bumpers are not chrome but polished stainless steel
    and im looking one more rear bumper like this

    yes teardrop trailer will be "matching" paint like bus but i think maybe not so aggressive or who knows how it will come out
    like bus was empty canvas without any real design and i gave full freedom to painter so it will be with trailer too

    right now the painter guy is in Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show.
