I'm thinking of making my wife think that polishing the stainless is fun.
If I succeed I'll need the right tools.  I don't want to go buy a bunch of stuff, because she might find out that it isn't fun after awhile and the tools won't get used.
Below are pics of what I already own.
I also looked at Harbor Freight today for the compound.  They have lots of colors.

So, I have some wool pads on my polishers, and nothing yet for my 4-1/2" grinder.

I'm not looking for a fancy job or mirror finish, but I'd like to clean it up.  It doesn't look terrible now.  I've attached the worst spots.  Some rust stains and some old lettering spots.

What do I need to get?

If you would have stopped in Abilene, you could have seen another Eagle or two.  Wink

As others have pointed out, drawing the air from outside is an issue.  Any force air heater only has the capacity to raise the temperature of the intake air by a limited number of degrees.  Just suppose that your heater can discharge air that is 40 degrees hotter than the intake air (this figure is just for example sake).  If the intake air was 20 degrees, the discharge would be only 60 degrees.  Now if the the intake air comes from the interior space, it is gradually heated up, so when it reaches 30 degrees the discharge will be 70 degrees.  When it reaches 40 degrees, the discharge will be 80 degrees, etc.  Therefore your heater will gradually bring the inside temp up to your thermostat set point of say 70 degrees and shut off.  If you are only processing cold outside air, your heater, depending on capacity, may never be able to reach the temp you want.

There are a number of reasons a cold air return pulls the air from the heated space, one is heating pre-heated air, and the second is not allowing the heated space to become pressurized and resist intake of heated air, plus the heated air needs to be encouraged to circulate inside the space.  16K is well on the small side for a bus, 30K to 40K is more appropriate.  A small wheel-chair battery won't run a furnace long, they are real current hogs when the fan is on.

Driving this weekend from Ft. Worth to Tucson and seeing interesting buses. Passed a Silver Eagle driving down the road the opposite direction. Spotted a Silver Eagle frame on the side of the road in Chillicothe. Frame only. Literally. No engine, no tranny, no windows, no siding. Just a frame sitting on wheels. And just now, this bus drove by:
