All panels are painted on the inner areas before fitting, we have developed a technique to minimise damage to the panels in areas where they are welded (once painted). Sorry I can’t say more but other companies copy our restoration techniques...

So this bus is having a large engine 2100cc plus built by one of the best in the engine world, as a result we have had to add a oil cooler to the underside. A racing concept oil cooler, this has meant modifying the centre belly pan and rear crossmember to make everything work.

Photos of that later.

So with all the modifications complete we can finally paint the engine bay and chassis!
