Wink Hello, I got my Bus
Hi

I have my bus.Big Grin

It took a while but I have my bus. Thanks Shane and Jimmy.
The lockers are working Thanks Paul and Stuart.
A lot of advice later Thanks Russel, Stuart, Dean and Jimmy.
A few bad decisions on my part, sorry Dean.

It passed its test yesterday. I am stoked.

Regards

Brian

Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Nice bus, congrats!
Question, the spare wheel on the nose, does it not obstruct air flow to the radiator? - I like the look, but is it not in the way of the headlights and radiator?

Ok I drove around for a while with the wheel strapped to the bull bar to be certain. There was no noticeable difference in cooling, it does not obstruct the number plate or lights. The wheel is now a permanent attachment to the front.

Pro's 1) it is easy to install, makes a nice nudge bar against walls etc. keeps the weight in the front after removing the under floor spare.
Con's 2) No other syncro driver likes it. Big Grin the bull bar takes a little of the ground clearance away.
