  1. Well were do I start :thinking:My wife and I bought Daisy because we have a daughter that's born with brain damage so we need a lot of stuff to take on holidays with us and thought a bus will be good idea, Iv always been into vedubs and had a few different types over the years so we thought a splitty would be good but to much money:( so next we looked at bays but again lots of money for filler and rust.

    So we bought dasiy from the back of a scrapyard were she had been sat for 10 years all the hedge had grown over her and almost disappeared from view, the poor thing had been picked of a lot of its good bits but she'd never been welded or bodged so a deal was done and she got dragged out in to the day light.

    The missus said wot have you bought and did that look that they do. So il let a few pics tell the story

    Removed the floor to get to the cross members they were still solid along with the chassis rails

    Removed all the cab floor and wheel arches but left the front cross members in to keep the shape but they got removed later.

    SO with that done I now knew where to start and what I needed. All this had to be done outside as I didn't have a garage :p but a good supply of tarpaulins from work..
