Hello fellow Jersey Brother ED,

Yes I also think we need a chat room.

Try clicking on users online and you will see what everybody is navigating through!

By the way, Your New England Paint job looks good!!

Maybe some are just continously logged on.  We have buses, we can't just spend the day on the BB typing or reading about it!  

 At least it was easier to get away with on the other board. Grin

Hey, didn't you see my earlier post suggesting the same thing? Yea we really need a chat room as it gets boring just setting watching the screen for new posts.

How do you view the profiles photos in a larger size? All I see is the small one in the post and even when I view the poster profile I can only see the small one.  Huh

I'm working up in Madison Wisconsin - @ my hotel - before going back to the customer site.  Wishing I was staying in my bus instead of this hotel.  Anyone take their bus when they work for a few days in a different city?

Wow if I could afford them I would use them.
My friend did it for the cost of the paint.
I did not have a plan and let him do it (artistic freedom).
He painted it after the most popular bus in the world, did all the prep work and it looks really good.
He wants to do more at Mexico prices. So bring them on.
He is just outside of Portland , Maine.

They're not that heavy.

Put some block on the floor behind it and just walk it to the edge of the door and lower it to the ground.
Use a slanted 2x6 if you need to and walk it down the ramp to the ground.

Where is your painter friend located?  I like "Mexico prices".

Hi Danny,

Can post some pictures of the window removal and skinning process?  I want to do the same, and I know there is a good deal of interest in this kind of project.
