Left her the compressor and the air chisel with various bits.

I ended up having a headache for three straight days.

Just figured I'd update anyone curious.
Her Bluebird is in pretty much NEW condition!
I'm so glad that you are feeling better. I was so worried😥

any progress pictures Sheila?

No pics yet. I only have a couple of before. Don't judge because I need to clean it up a lot😀. I hope to have some after pics because that means I will have the whole ceiling off. We will see. I don't have a lot of muscles now but I have a feeling after this is done I am going to look like a body builder.
I am going to try and attach some before pics.

The pics don't do it justice, its NICE. Especially for an 86 model.

The engine is so easy to access!


The tar on the ceilings isn't the same formula as International use, and it looks pristine inside. I 100% believe the mileage is correct at 36k.

I'm also VERY glad to feel better, its been a LONG time since I've had a headache anywhere near that bad.

I can (hopefully) give you a hand again saturday, if not sunday.

Persevere, you WILL have a SUPREME bus when you get this project "done".

That is a magnificent start on the bus.

Are you still going to have before and after body building pics?

Boy I got to get me some of them pills the "before and after" guy was taking.

Nice choice on the bus Sheila. It get's kind of interesting to see who chooses front engine buses and who chooses rear engine buses. Perhaps it's just what's available in a lot of cases. It's good you've got a helper with the right tools. That's an interesting project.

I'm always more interested in following the FE builds. When the RE guys start putting tanks and stuff in the basement it just doesn't seem fair sometimes. Still, we make our choices. This bus was my fourth nouther choice. It's fun to make something out of them and it's fun to start on something new.
Good luck with your project.

We have a couple of meat shoppes. I've been trying to get some camel to make chili next.
