Great work!

Recently my van also had rust removed and new panels welded in. I think your van was not so bad haha, we also found bad fiberglass work...

Hi guys, Well i've got the funbus back & i'm very happy with it. In the end i didn't change the colour to ice blue like i said i was going to, but instead, i went back to original which is a very bright white & all one colour instead of the off white & two tone that is was when i got it, so it's now back to how it was when it was first imported over here. I also had the wheels restored by a company in Ferndown called The Wheel Specialist, & they done a great job, i've had them powder coated & they are now shadow chrome instead of silver.

Thanks. My grill was painted grey when i got it, it also had a few stone chips, which is when i noticed it was chrome under the paint, so i scraped the paint off with a razor blade, it only took about an hour to do & looks so much better Smile

Yes the chrome looks really good, mine is painted but it doesn't quite match the body paint, and it also has a stone ship showing chrome - I have the paint remover on standby LOL Wink

The Itasha style funbus project is now under way Smile The work is being done by Unbeatable Tints, Wraps, Signs (UTWS) in New Milton & they've done a cracking job so far, & i'll be going back in a few weeks to sort out more Anime/graphics to go on Smile

This is on the front wiper cover.



This cutie is on the both front doors Smile



This is the rear door Smile

Is the background colour of the wrap white or transparent?

I.e. if I wanted one for a silver/gold colour can they be used to add the character only or do they all come with white backgrounds?

Looks like they're doing a proper job. Filler is only a temporary repair really.

I got a full respray last year and it's still looking good. They had to cut out and replace a bad repair from a side impact just behind the sliding door.

Keep updating the pictures

PostSubject: Mine is similar   Fri Feb 24, 2017 5:04 pm

Hi, Love the bus mine has the same colour interior but not as lavish as yours, imported it as you see it, done a bit of work to the front valance and fitted a leisure battery, so all interior lights run off that, really interesting to see another...Love the dash,and front interior, mine needs a fair bit of TLC and a new/recovered front drivers seat. must find out how to put some pics up....stunning graphics!!
