I feel like if I had time and the motivation I could make some ok copies of these but about half way through making the paper plans I kept thinking about just using some scrap Honda side by side skid plates I have :-k #-o .

I was going to copy some other stuff but I ran out of time. #-o These seemed like the right ones to do first.

Is there a Hackers Anonymous? =;

I don't know what I will do. There is no telling.

I do hope to get the bus over there after Christmas. I hope to be getting the last few pieces as gifts that I need to make it roll. \:D/

not much progress but better than nothing!

This was the Day after Christmas. The tarp had been blown apart and I needed to recover it.
I got a few parts as gifts (spring plate Bushings! \:D/) and I was off work so I did a little work.

We got the spring plate with the new bushing on but I need a tap to clean out the threads before I can put on the end cap.
I also need some bolts to go into the redux box and a tap for them too. :-s

Guess we have to wait until he gets out of jail ?
911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.

I was very Excited to drive a BUS

I had only driven them very slow on 2 different drive ways. (may have been on Saturdays too Wink )

I have never even rode in one before. Mine wont roll and it doesn't even have a wheel on it for me to pretend drive. :-({|=

It had snowed when he sent this and then we had a bunch of rain. There was lots salt on dirt on the roads as well so I decided to wait till it was nice out.

When we turned around in the Sak then the bus died. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)and would not start back up. [-(

The girl runs a few laps around the culduhsak to get her energy out.
the wife stays in the back of the DC
. Freezing- I told her to grab a sweatshirt! #-o

I message Partner X after I prod and poke a bit at the motor.
he was probably freaking out. Told me to pull a fuel line to check for gas but it was cold and they were brittle.
No one is around (yet) so it seemed a "good" place to break down. Better than on a bridge or in traffic. =;
