Stage 1: Arrival
The first part of every project if choosing a suitable base to work with that will require the lowest amount of work for the highest quality result. Check out the pics of this base below.
Stage 2: Metalwork
After stripping all the old material off the bus we start repairing the structure of the bus so that is is in excellent shape. We change out any rusted metal and restore or replace any banged up metal parts depending on their availability on the market. Usually T2 models are in better shape, but we still change all the ties, stringers and floors.
