It did look good. I like the stance as well. Nicely done!

Thanks guys. She's a keeper. Smile Coming home I was solo, so I let her rip some. It was pretty windy most of the way, but I did 70-75 on the freeways, and 65 on the two lanes. I had an AZ DPS officer trailing me for awhile on I-10 just east of Casa Grande. He finally went past and gave me a thumbs up. Probably didn't believe his radar, so had to pace me. :^o :^o
Oh, and the only leg I checked coming home, I logged 24.3 MPG.

Yep, starting to trust more and more. With me, it's my cooling system. I think it's golden now. Everything else is rebuilt. Should have a mechanically sound bus for years to come.

Finnish plane for sure. After that not sure. Need a temp gage in the bus, and found out my wiper motor is binding some how. Need to look into that. Rainy and cold here today, so hibernation is most likely. Smile

It is never too late to give up.
And to start all over with old experiences as a basis.

Still got some practice to make my clamps tighter and I need to use heavier wire. This one is .32 safety wire.
