Thought I would add another 66 deluxe to keep the theme going. Bus is now in the assembly stage so lots of photos, I will be using a lot of NOS parts collected over the 30 years I have owned this bus.

some more pics of the progress- NOS RHD floor was used for footwell repair.

Note the pressing in the original rear battery tray - each circular depression a little deeper till the drain hole to allow drainage- the repro tray had a single non draining cosmetic pressing- so what to do? - well graft the original into the repro tray!

colour scheme- aero pspyrus/sea blue cumulus white. Will be keeping it original- as much of the original interior is too good not to use

front beam rebuilt- new bearings, pins bushes /NOS. As stated earlier I have collected parts for this build since I bought the bus- in 1990, long before the internet when swap meets and friends were how you found stuff! To add a bit of colour- the bus, a RHD was brought to Australia when its owner emigrated. I have the shipping documents etc. This explains some of the rare (in Australia anyway) features- aero papyrus upholstery and factory safaris.
