Are those the tire sizes you went with on Kelly's BD? I tend to agree with you on the rear tires, being that bay window gearing can use all the help it can get....

Not a bad look. But I already had a bus that was stock height, had knobby tires and stock drum brakes. Just wasn't super thrilled with it. Loved the way it looked, but just felt like I was driving a tractor.

I told myself if I buy/build another bus it will have the following:
-Windows (driving a panel kinda sucks)
-3 full rows of seating
-Enough horsepower to get out of its own way
-Some killer brakes

DMV paperwork can really suck. They don't tend to budge much, can be like talking to a wall.

Been there. Done that. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Just comes down to paperwork. If it was outta the DMV system it would be cake. Just waiting to see if everything pans out.

Hope to put the BRM wheels that I had on the Mango when it was lowered onto this bus. Also going to steal the 1914 out of the Mango to use for motovation.

I did the whole DMV thing on my Mango years ago. Takes a little time and you have to jump through a few hoops, but it's not too bad in Colorado for vehicles 25 years and older.

DMV is just paperwork and processing if it the vehicle is out of the system - just gotta go through the steps. But the bay window was gonna be more work than that. Stuff that I couldn't do over the phone or across state lines. But I am sure keeping it in CO might have made it easier.

Enjoy it! Scored a sweet bus.
