Hey Cookie, you're spiro's mate yeh?
Heard you acquired some beastly history, congratulations!!!
Yeh, I'm leaving it a transom mount and low floor, the way it rolled out mate.The process has become longer than I intended but oh well, what's the rush I suppose.The grinding and cutting has taken it's toll on me though.. seeing a chiro nearly every week, I'm not joking..All the best with the resto mate and if you need chat yell out.

You're more than welcome to come up anytime, however it's not at work as I had it there in order to finalise the grinding.
Its back at a mates place who's helping me with the project.
Call me at work and we'll catch up.As far as the low floor goes I mentioned low floor as most people are only familiar with the eden Craft Formula up my way and are surprised at the freeboard of mine.
The next stage is begining this weekend.
