I was leaving Biscuitville from an awesome breakfast and headed to job #2 Saturday and all of a sudden I saw the biggest Dove blue bus ever.

Is this the L31 tourist charter?

Cross your fingers!!!!
I might,,,,, might get some space, a corner in a garage and actually be able to work on this bus!!!! [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o<

In anticipation of finding out (and covering it back up from strong winds)
I took some more pics.

I hope to hear soon about the possible Garage space. [-o< [-o< [-o<
I saw it last night. \:D/

it was Small but nice and well lit. I could go work on it and then drop everything if I needed to leave.
When I could go back I could pick up where I left off. That would be a dream.
I need this to Happen!!!!!

This is what I would tackle first.
I think I need nice level concrete to work on.
I need to make this thing strong again. I don't think that's going to happen in the dirt.

I built my shorty SC, and my '58 DD in the dirt. If the garage space don't come through (I hope it does), don't think it can't be done. :-k

Question?????

Are split and bay spring plate end caps the same?????

The bushings are the same in the W.W. catalogue . :-k :-k :-k :-k

I might be able to get one off a bay in a junk yard if so. Make this mug a roller \:D/

The splines are the same, but have different mounts. Splitties have RGB's and Bays have IRS.

Even more than what people sell at shows.
