Cool! I planned on using one for the same purpose; glad to see it working for someone else.

Given the animal theme of my conversion plan, and the original purpose of the sign, I thought of redoing the paint scheme with text as follows:
PLEASE
BRAKE
FOR ANIMALS!

However, the bus I might get (when its owner returns from a business trip) doesn't have a sign. Of course.

They took ours off before we could take the bus,(stupid rules) as well as the arm that was on the bumper, other wise I wanted to use the arm for my satellite dish, raise and lower on the roof, or maybe for solar panels, to tilt them when the bus is parked.

I know it's "illegal" to leave them on in their current place, but I wonder if they would say anything if I moved it to the back roof, right above the rear door. Then it could pop up when I stopped like a third break light, sort of....

Cute, but I'd not try it.
I go as low key as possible to avoid "the man".

Automatic doorstep.

I'm going to explore the idea of using the mechanism to make another step that will extend when the door is opened and retract when the door is closed. That way it won't be such a high first step. Mama has trouble getting on the first step because it is so high. I know I could use a little stool but I just like to build things. When I get around to it I will post pics.
