Have you considered simply starting with a nicer bus? I don't know what your skills are, but the race is easier if you can see the finish line. If you are not a runner, don't start off doing a marathon.

Yes they are, as all buses, regardless of year of manufacture, should have been equipped.

My opinion only. Of course.

Excellent photos of an excellent bus.

Thanks. It took quite a bit. You can see some primer showing through on the hood and fenders but its shiny so ill just be keeping it waxed for a while. The toyota has seen some shit. Took it cross-country last year and it never missed a beat. And the hatch sleeps nicely when the weather is good Laughing

That's a cool car! It's polar silver though, diamond grey is 58-59 only. Do you have any other detailed pictures of it other than what you already have saved on the site here?

there are still some pics of it when it was in the states and still had blue paint on the outside -

they called it diamond green but it isnt that colour so I assumed it was diamond grey. brit owner before me removed the blue respray.

Thatís definitely polar silver, and it looks amazing! That has the perfect aged look, and not all rusty either.
