Just looked through your posts and they all seem for sale posts of imported vehicles. Did you seriously give this guy 11k on a bus that looks like it would be returned in a carrier bag after an acid dip?
When I was first looking at splits, green between the gills I was looking at these kind of buses with grainy photos that still showed the horrors they might be.
Very clever these scam artists. The guy I was speaking to had a local ebay account, local address etc really seemed bona fida until I dug some more via FB and googling his name etc.
