Here is some pictures from when I visited the OCTO show back in june.
Despite I´m not a bus guy, it was very cool to see over 160 split busses gathered at one place.
And I still dream of all the nice parts lying on that swapmeet! If only I had the $ to buy it all, and maybe even a bus :-)

This week I got my heads from the machine shop.
They got new valve guides, new seats, and I had bought 8 nos valves for them, but after some persuasion from my good friends Andi from Germany (oval56.com) and Ulrik from the JDVD garage, there were a change of plans on the inlet valves.
The heads got a set of 33mm Okrasa inlet valves instead of the 30mm nos ones I allready had bought. The exhaust remanined stock.
Also this week I got my linkage back from my Friend Bo, he made some small bushing for the linkage so that the axle won´t run against metal.
I can´t wait to try this modifications out.

Nos hub caps
Still with the original part number inside.
After some hours of polishing.
The final result, bright crome and painted logo´s.
I recently bought a set nos painted hub caps for the oval.
They needed a croming though.
I decided to do the grinding/polishing work myself to save some money, and Jens was kind enough to help me.
Here are some pictures through the different stages.
