What's the story of it? Is it a uk panel? Got to be quite rare these days being a rhd and a sliding door model i'd imagine. Do you know what it was used for when it was new?

Snapped this at bvf last year mate, as i think i've said before one of my favourite panels! :D :cool:
That is such a cool pic scotty,nice one:D
It was a british fire truck originally,not sure where but i will find out.
Its one of the first rhd sliding splits in the country and as far as i know its the only rhd slider panel left in this country:D
its solid as a rock for a british van and i love it:D

well quite a good weekend:D
cleaned out loads of shit out the garage and rewired my headlights with all new correct coloured wires,terminals and new connector block.
Bus is up on stands ready for some new dropped spindles as the old dropped ones were awful.
Whilst its up,ive bought some por15 and a stripping wheel to totally repaint the chassis.
Will get some pics of underneath in the week(its looking lovely and clean):D
