Thanks for all your comments guy's I'm glad you like the little pink terror (lol) yes I am lucky that my Wife likes to get involved with these
projects. It is a great way of us spending some meaningful time together! At first I wondered if she got it, cause she would say can't we just get a new one LOL, but now she gets it!

Anyway since you liked the Van build I thought I would carry it on with our next project which upsized to a minibus and rather than start a new thread I will add it to this so here you go.

So here we go again this time the subject is Mazda t3500, I wanted this model because not only does it have the motorised side door but also 2 front doors, heaps better access. It took a couple of years of looking but I finally found one with the right mileage and owner history (Christian Children School then Retirement village) to we picked her up having the seats already removed (time/effort saver) no rust, straight and ready for some love! so here are some pic's of how she started, cheers Andy.

So the first thing I needed to check when I got it home was the floor since their made out of Plywood! So what did I find all in all not to bad but a couple of rotten spots and only 8mm thick plus it looked like a patch work of left overs so it had to be replaced with a 12mm thick deal.. one of those things were now I know it's good!
