    Hej och välkommen :)

    Keep the photos coming. Tin tops are the best :)
  7. I have a tin top also but from California. Yours looks quite rust free. There are two round holes just under the headlights are they for extra lighting? Keeps us all posted with photos. Friend of mine has just bought a Swedish late bay transporter fire van 7 seater and drove it back to England.
  8. The holes under the headlights are for the hose to the nossle that spray whashing fluid on the hedlight lenses.
    The nossle sits on the rep horns that mount to the bumper.

  9. I have quite a small garage in the basement of my house so i had to build a rotoriser for the bus so i could work on it. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Rust in the usual places but overall very solid. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  18. I assume your basement has a front entrance, as just stairs would be a problem with the bus! Lol
