Well, not much can be done to this bus as its driving so well. All I had to do was take it through roadworthy and have the plates made. I had some lovely old style number plates made up by a guy in Port Shepstone. They really look the part on a original bus. I should have however applied for a special 4 digit number to look more age appropriate, the 5 digits make the plate a little full.

Just a few pics after giving the bus a thorough clean.

A obsessive purist perfectionist starting to admit that he likes an FLEETLINE , when German Split Screen buses are still available...
