Is this yours, or sample pics?

Typically, all that metal framework is rotted in the fronts of MC8's to one degree or another.

happy coaching!

Yep that's mine.  I didn't see it in person but from the pics, I think I'm pretty lucky.  He told me that until the front panel is taken off, it's hard to tell how much rust/damage is underneath which would jack the prices up. 

He didn't say anything when he sent me those pics so maybe I'm okay.

My bus was converted in 98 so I guess its possible that they had to do some work on the front then.
