Folks, I have the 9 with large alum rub rails. I have removed them all, painted them and now need to replace the rubber seal that goes on the top and bottom. Anyone have a vendor that sells the seals by the foot? MCI wants a bunch for each unit! I need over 100 feet to replace all seals. The rub rails sure look good. Grin.


Regards,

Grant

Rich at IBP (International Bus and Parts) sells the 1/4" (or thereabouts) slide in rubber seal for the beltline trim.   He probably would have the lower rub rail seals too.   
US Coach (Luke) could also supply.

Hi Rich!  Reckon I should call the bus something else a little more recognizeable?   White Knuckle Express comes to mind....or "Rent-a-Wreck"   We'll see.  By calling it the original ID supplied by NJT I figured that I might find someone that drove the thing one day.  However, they may wish to forget that period of their life.  I got almost all of my trim installed.   Nothing holding me up but doing it. 
Rich, how far is Timmonsville from your Florida digs?  Looks like about 30 coaches have committed in some form. Looks like may be a nice get-together.  I'm going to meet Cat.  She seems very nice.  We'll probably play a little music too. 
That's what we do.    I just want some of that dead pig!  Love such vittles! 
Well, I'm trying to add a pix of an Eagle that is being built by an old hotrodder.  And he's done a magnificent job so far.  The interior is just beyond rational.  Absolutely beautiful.   Unit has two slides,  Smooooth outside in prime.  This thing will be slick when painted.   Got custom front bumper   Guys name is Phil Wood (I hope) and he resides in the area between Atlanta and Augusta.  This would be an excellent item to publish in the MAK Coach of the Month.   Interior is pretty complete.....this is a must see.
I'll try to post a couple pix.  The bus can be ID'd by the loss of the tags, frenced tail lights and custom headlights.    Exhaust stack out the top of the coach as is the air intake.
I'll try to post  a pix tomorrow night.  Getting ready for Dallas' Pig-Out!  Got a little rain and it's all dirty again.
Cheers, JR
