Hi Bedfordcrazy, Thats great, I met my wife the same way and we have been together in the same Van since then, we have been all though the Pilbara, even inland to Shay Gap, Nullagine and Witnoon Gorge (when it was all dirt roads), up to katherin & Darwin many times driving up & down from Perth to Port Hedland, if you do a lot of km and want somewhere to camp out thats the way to do it,  (Sound a bit like I've been every where Man)  Regarding Lance he was a terrific Guy at first but as pickmeup mentioned it was an unsavory end to his business, and it was soon after my Van was finished he left the business, shame, he knew his stuff, Lance did the stepped Roof in 1983, and as far as I can remember the APOXY RESIN and MICROFIBRES was then sold by PERMATECH, in fact I brought some more in 1993 when I took the gutter off and resealed it, 
Nice to hear from you Guys
Regards Ian

Hi Jimsvan, In the 80's there was a promotion by Coca Cola by having one Customized CFS Bedford in every state of Australia, by using the Local Radio Stations they had random number plates read out and you had a certain time to call the Radio station if your number plate came up, then you were put in a draw to win the Van, I think it was a Young Teenage Girl who won it in WA, although some other members of this site could help out more, the Vans and the customized Panels  (Spoiler, Flared Guards ect) were contracted out to Vancraft in the Eastern states somewhere, and they were kind enough to sell these Panels to the Public, if you go to Ians Gallery under (At the Van Shop osborne Park)  there are images there of the panels being fitted, this was in 1983, 84, I do not know if these are still available but some members of this User Group may be able to help you,   Regards Ian

How you going Craig, Bedfordcrazy  Still looks as good as when I saw it many years ago, really inspired my doing my Van up back then, and thanks for the info of where to source out those rare fibreglass body items, and just looking at the Local Quoka there are still some Bedfords around do do up!
