WOW, our threads could be twins. Pop over and check out mine - another 67 rhd walkthrough split - was a Devon and one day it I'll be something symapathetic. So many of our jobs are the same its unacanny, but I guess our buses have all the usual suspects. The link s ion my footer.

Good luck with the rest of the resto. I am into year two and indeed my second resto on this bus. If I can be any help please just ask.

For my part I've found the replies, support and advisce unbeatable. especially for a build story and to get support, opinion and advice. Please keep posting and I can't wait to see it for real.

Carlos, I have been following your post on Veronica for ages and yes, the woes / issues are almost mirrored :-0

You keep up the good work too and keep the updates coming.

I find it's quite difficult to get to post pictures regularly so next ones might well be when it's painted as it's not that far from there to be honest.

Will hope to see you at one of the events in the summer if you are likely to attend any at all??

Hi James, I know exactly what you mean. I use Photobucket but it takes ages. What is your Facebook link?
I am not far ahead just finished painting underneath last night. Engne bay and suspension parts next to paint. Aiming for either Stanford Hall or Hessich if all goes well. When are you hoping to be back on the road?

I tend to write the words on SSVC site on PC or on tapatalk on mobile.
I have become disorganised with loading onto photobucket for longer term storage and have loads only on my PC. I tend to load everything straight from the gallery on my phone using tapatalk. Fast n easy..
Either taken with phone camera or saved from emails, facebook, downloads, messenger what's app etc.

As I've had a new long panel, i need to adjust the fuel flap cover so have sourced a few church-key type ones and as usual, have had to use parts from the two to make one good one!!

Just had the Red9 rear setup returned from the powder coaters. Although it comes zinc etched, I've had that media blasted off to allow better keying and then a zinc based primer treated it before coating. Have gone for dark grey and silver although the silver is more of a light grey.

Thanks ramjet, been a long few years getting it to this stage but starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel now :-)

Had a 160 mile round trip today to pick up a o/g rear bumper as the one that was on it was beyond repair. The replacement one needs work to get it straight but at least it is solid.

As I was passing the wo§rishon I dropped in to get an update and take a few pictures - cargo area has been painted in several coats this week - zinc, primer, stonechip and then topcoat of Pearl White. Looks ace but is a shame that it's mostly going to be hidden!

I have a pretty big list of parts required once it's painted - time to put a few wanted adds up me thinks!!!

Pictures of cargo area as follows.........

James
I have a laptop aka "the brick" a wi fi enabled tablet and a smart phone.
I either take pictures on my phone or Dave sends me pictures by e-mail.
I email all the pictures to myself and I have the storage folder on the laptop with all the build pictures.
I then post from my gallery using tapatalk directly onto the thread.
Easy.

More progress (slowly but surely).

Various parts from bumper irons to accelerator pedal, parcel shelf, bumper and over-riders, gear rods, rear valance, handbrake and other parts all sorted and dispatched to powder coaters for blasting and powder coating.......
