    And letโ€™s talk aluminum! The bumper trim pieces I have might be a bit rough- hopefully theyโ€™ll clean up ok!
    And the vent trim pieces – I think they all had the required tabs to hold them on, but ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    And finally (maybe) the coat hooks- should be in the wood box with the โ€œHard work never hurt anyone, but why take chances?โ€sticker on it. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

    yup yup and yup..ย  Your coat hooks were all missing a tab for a screw (broke)..ย  ย Maybe that’s something else Gab might have? I don’t know where they are at the moment..

    Rough trim painted trim..ย  but I can clean it up…ย  no worries…

    Ohhhhhh baby!! Lookinโ€™ good! Yes! Letโ€™s get the seat frames prepped for Doug so he has no excuses. Hand โ€˜em off to him and heโ€™ll have a month to get the covers onโ€ฆ should do it! โณ Franz and Cole will send the front emblem so it can get in and the kick panels can go in. Tires, wheels with clips, and with the trans it will be rolling! ๐Ÿ›ž๐Ÿ›ž๐Ÿ›ž๐Ÿ›ž Maybe third or last week of July Iโ€™ll get to you in Grand Junction, JJ! Weโ€™ll get Franz and Cole to bring the engine so I can turn a wrench putting it in -gotta get my hands on part of this bus before sheโ€™s totally complete! This is my fourth splitty bus and the only one I havenโ€™t pulled an engine or fixed the brakes on! ๐Ÿ”ง๐Ÿ”ง With the seats in we can all drive to dinner! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜

    I need to put some tabs on the rear back rest for the jail bar mounts on the back of the seat..ย  ย And the middle seat looks like it going to be all straight tube fixes…ย  ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย  The WORST part of the seats is Calling Doug and asking for his help….8-) Maybe I should give em a try..ย  it came with most everything…. hummย  ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Žย  He’s is a character to deal with…ย  ย ugg..ย  he will want money immediately too!!

    a Bus is NEVER finished Tom..ย  You will have all kinds of opportunity to turn a wrench.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Ok.. Back to work!ย  more assembly!!!
