Morning all,

I'm in the messy end of converting my Leyland Terrier school bus into a motorhome. Sadly, as a bit of a trainspotter with some OCD tendencies toward the Kenworth Cabovers, I am blending some parts from my K100 cab into the front clip of my Leyland.

I started dreaming about this 5 years ago watching some beautiful cabovers come into the servo near my shed. I got out the tape measure and began checking it out, and now, I'm done with photoshop and all the fancy schmancy talk, and into drilling out rivits.
:shock:

I don't know where to post pictures, and I generally find forums tricky to search and navigate. So I started an album in facebum..but I am tired of the nonsense in the feeds there, and so returning to the roots, hoping some of you nice people might understand my obsession and craziness with a lean to kind encouragement.

Firstly, let me see if anyone is interested in further info before I assume.. and secondly, if there is interest, can I please have links to some how too's..
1> Where to make a thread that I can post too with a timeline and updates _> Or should I be looking at a blog site? and linking in.
2> Pictures.. I have lots of pictures because I have a bad memory and the old hansel and grettle thing of dropping pictures helps me find my way back out of the shed! Do I post here.

Okay, well I understand there is a thing where more posts will enable attainment to PM or some such.. For now, I'll rest back and see if my email gives any indication of interest..

You all have peace with you and yours... I'm off to walk the dog.

Hi Adam

Great idea, I for one would love to see and hear more about your progress.

I too once dreamed about putting a Kenworth aerodyne cab on a Denning Landseer, But some rough photoshop pictures didn't quiet show the results I had hoped. That and I don't have the skills to actually build the thing,

Please post up some pics of your progress
