Beautiful Beast

Unfortunately, I partially tore my Achilles and had to have it repaired. (My advice to anyone interested is not to get old)

Basically finished the roof raise and drove the bus from the conversion site to the storage site for the duration of my recovery. Boo.

Anyway. Bored and sitting here with my foot elevated enjoying my meds and decided to flex a bit.

Ain't she beautiful?

Yes, she is beautiful indeed!


I noticed that you painted the skinned parts black, good choice.

Sorry man, that sounds painful. Enjoy the rest and the meds, man!
Post some more pics I'm real curious about Thomas roof raises.

Ah, so it is the same as when we came out to see it. The lighting in the photo makes it look painted.
