Everyone loves the site... Generally speaking.. And it is the most active when Franz and I are posting up a lot.. And I know you guys love our personal projects more than anything.. :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k It is the best way to get ahold of me... I guess I could just call it my cell phone bill.. :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" But thanks..

I would like to present this bus with all it's removables hanging and swinging on their own!!!! =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> I'm gonna keep rolling through this engine bay till it is done.. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
