Not bus drives straight as an arrow. The bus itself like some one pushing on sides up and down

What do you guys charge per hour  Wink.
24" is a good depth for a bus, I think we settled on the same for our future cabinets. What are you using on the countertop there?

FYI, there are a ton (literally a lot) of dash cam videos out of Russia that frequently depict the drivers of other vehicles not involved in the crashes just driving on. People don't stop over there to help. It's nuts. I've traveled a lot of places around the world including Cuba and my month in Russia was by far my least favorite. I'll never ever go back.

Custom built. My dad and I have been building them. Typical depth 24" approximately.
Uppers are 15" deep

Tom is correct, it belongs to his top mechanic.

I was privileged to see Jay's collection several years ago and it is a fascinating place to visit. Jay is a stand up guy and will not talk about TV, cars is another thing. He will talk for hours. He drives a different one almost daily to keep them in perfect running condition. He truly is a car nut!

The manual is pretty straight forward and explains the setup very easily. If you have any questions I will PM my cell number to you so you can call if you need help. Daryl will also respond to an email or phone call pretty fast.

I enjoyed using the system and will be using it again on our next trip soon up to the NWBN rally in September, then on down south the Gold Hill, NV for the winter.

A TPMS system will never substitute for  a walk around before every trip to do the pre-trip check list. But what it does do is give you peace of mine that if you run over something, have a tire failure, it will let you know very fast. For me I liked the fact that my toad, which a 2011 Buick Enclave, the tires are monitored. I can see the car with my camera and look at it occasionally, but I would rather keep my eyes on the road. If an alarm comes up I will get notified.

A tandem tanker truck i use to drive was all over the road, like driving on marbles. Turns out it was the tires, 1 ply sidewalls. Empty it was good,loaded,hang on. New tires again( faulty tires were one week old) problem solved. Thicher sidewalls,old ones were paper thin. Just my two cents. Raymond

 Your 06 NEEDS between 3.5 to 4 degrees of POSITIVE CASTER, its easy to do with a protractor and a couple of wrenchs.>>>Dan (I have found them as much as 3 DEGREES negative and they handled horribly)

Check the caster setting on front axle. Negative caster makes steering easy at !ow speed, but causes wandering on highway with frequent correction of steering wheel. How are shocks? Any play in steering? Manual or power steering?

That Flx is Bernards--Jays top mechanic/engineer. I talked to him some time back when I was looking for 4 speed parts. Nice guy. Told me the side trim was all NOS stuff. My guess is that bus is super sanitary and the undercarriage and driveline are probably very impressive. Would love to see it closeup some day. Tom
