  4. Well what a major hurdle overcome this week, the inside of the bus is now fully painted & looks superb. Thankfully, its been warm up here & the garage, combined with a pair of heat lamps has warmed up a treat.

    A couple of coats of high build primer

  15. Few bits done this past couple of weeks...finished off painting the inside, got the floor painted with a couple of coats of rustoleum to give it a bit of protection

    Fed the wiring loom through to the back so we can get Gusbus mobile, so we can finish the bodywork outside off and get that all painted up...we are a bit cramped at the moment (plus some of the bits needed to be moved away from work). Not ideal but it does mean we can troubleshoot though!

    Remember that rustoleum allthough touch dry wont be cured fully for a month maybe two at winter temps

    We need a escape from smg line up at this summers shows lol
