Nilesh, The Bus will behave very bad with dropped suspension, This is not a spindle drop, but this is a Beat drop using adjusters. By doing this you are actually putting a lot of load on the tie-rod ends, steering and suspension.

Dont worry, i will not do that on your bus.

Some more updates as on today

This is beautiful. So clean and perfect, probably better than when it was brand new. Not to mention your favorite shade of paint turned out really nice. It will be a head turner for sure on the road.. Another happy and proud owner.

Thanks Pavan and team for the wonderful work done,and Pankaj for supplying some of the spares much needed to take this project to another level. This third round definitely was well worth the time/effort and $$ put in. There are a few more parts that are yet to come in like the front bumper over-riders,a new pair of headlight and front indicator assemblies..a weber dual carb kit.
Some pics from my side with the final icing on the cake-the roof rails,and yes it wasn't easy getting it into the country.

Fantastic restoration project and congrats on that.

ingress and egress can become a problem on busy roads right as it is on the right of the van!

Pawan Sir, Another fantastic project. The picture of the bus with the flowers standing with all doors closed, looks like wallpaper material. Just out of curiosity, Can you please let me know how much would it cost to buy a vehicle like this and restore it.
