    Stunning bus

    I raised the suspension and set the toe on the 55 deluxe on Tues. While I was under it, I wanted to adjust the master cylinder pushrod (because the brake light was staying on). I found that the clevis pin did not have a cotter pin in it to retain it. I was like wtf, that is dangerous. The pin could have fallen out anytime and this bus could have been in an accident.

    Polishing like crazy. I’ve sanded and buffed pretty much 100% of the external surface the last two days. No scratches, just deep shiny paint. Final detail and aluminum trim polish tomorrow. Its looking really good.

    So many windows, so many little issues. I did bunch of paint detail the last few days. I’ve got it pretty much dialed now. Changed out the original wiper shafts with late model safari pivots,  to early safari wiper shafts that have the mechanism hidden on the backside.  I also have some silver wiper blades on the way to replace the black commercial blades.

    Dan’s bus in for a rear axle leak. A quick shake of the wheel looks like the wheel bearings are toast. I need to order a set of RGB bearings before we can rip that apart.

    Guess that’s as long as a rebuilt transaxle last when they use Chinese bearings. Or perhaps small nut RGB’s were not designed to go 75 mph.

    Out for a little drive yesterday. 100% dialed. Everybody looks at this machine while driving. I felt like a rockstar.

    KB, the weather is looking crappy here today. Probably not ideal for driving the mango home.

    That 55 is looking amazing! Thanks Franz. People love those colors. So many waves when you drive that bus.

     

    I think KB is already flying. Weather isn’t good here either.

    KB just texted me that he has passed Green River and it’s going great! Strong head winds because of the storm, but he said he’s been cruising at 55. He also said he noticed that a scout pin was missing that was with the bus. Have you seen it JJ? It was attached to the fresh air vent I believe.
