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.

Doing?  Getting ready to take out the bus air.  How is the easiest way to get a compressor out of an MCI 102A3?

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.

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

I am sitting here in Middle Tennessee.  Just picked up a tarp today so I can start taking the windows out in order to put metal up.  I have everything ordered and ready to go. Wink

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.

Best Regards, Phil

How about some pictures of the headliner install?
Tonight I'm thinking about the air horns & trailer hitch fabrication?
What are you doing?
Bicycles will come later.
