I really like the sealer color too... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> The interior looks awesome as is.. I'm surprised they f'ed it all up with brush painting... :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$

Bus looks awesome!!!!!! Yo... Kevin, question... Looked to me that your bus didn't have a pass side outside mirror... So I painted the solid pin in the door.. #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o Would you like me to put a mirror on the pass side, or leave as is?? :-k :-k :-k It looked so nice I went right past it.. but usually there is a broke off arm in them.. #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o

I messed up and bought aww mirror and clamp because I assumed that it got both mirrors like most every other bus. But I think the pin is kind of a unique thing to early buses.

Franz Muhr... "The closer" is getting this one done.. I'll bet today unless he is missing some parts... I need to rub on the paint a touch more before it leaves.. I'll try and get the touch ups and rubbing etc done this weekend... [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o<

This machine is ready to go. What is the plan for transport? Strait to Greg and Clara? JJ said he may be able to deliver it in person to Salt Lake later this week.
