Hello everybody, after selling my t2 bus and always been dreaming of a splitbus
I found one on the internet!
Restored the T2 myself so i'm exited to start my new project!

Im from Belgium so my English can sound a little weird Smile

It's a 1966 11 window from california.

This is my t2 that's sold:
