Default 1956 11 window RHD aka Noodles

This bus has been in the country many years after being shipped over from Malaysia.

Sadly itís had a hit and all panels have had work done, all hand made and then filler... lots of filler oh so much filler.

With this known a large order of Klassicfab panels have been ordered.

Straight into cutting and blasting (done in house)!

Quite a bit to be cut.

With the amount of damage and poor repairs to the vehicle, the decision is made to start again!

Luckily we are experienced in this area of chassis building and splitscreen restoration so off comeís the upper shell.
