Wayne the only alternative that I know of
is the way Setra told us to do to "eliminate" the steering option on the tag. We did it on our first one and would not do it again.
If you find an alternate solution let me know as it gets expensive replacing those $800 cylinders as rebuilding them does not work 90% of the time! Setra told us that in the beginning stubborn we tried it twice before learning to agree with them. As a matter of fact I believe they kit stocking or selling the parts to rebuild them so to all the headaches it caused them, when they didn't work and customers wanted refunds!(not us of course, but I heard some did)
Looking good there keep it up, you'll have a superb coach when done.
Also I'd take Clifford up on that "Honorary Eagle membership" as your bus is an Eagle's refined cousin. (both designed and originally built by Kassboro)
(and you might even sell some of your front end kits to some Eagle owners as the 200 series Setra is supposed to have the exact same front end radius as an Eagle!)
