Just now when I read through the thread I definitely see how you thought I meant to address your post.

I apologize for not making my self more clear; it wasn't my intention to invalidate your observations.
The first couple times I read it I thought you were revering to my post, then I wasn't sure. So I thought I'd make it clear though that I wasn’t trying to tell others to do the same. I was just letting them know that the police seem to have bigger & better things to worry about than us skoolies.

Re: National School Bus Yellow

I want to roll my paint on. National School Bus Yellow is not my favorite color. I want a dark forest green with a white top.

I hope to get it painted by January.

Re: National School Bus Yellow

Ditto here Pat,

In Wisconsin I recently (august 08') had my Project inspected, I converted the middle brake light and Officer ___________ stated Nope.

Chassis lights are chassis lights.

Safety lights are removed.

National Yellow is now orange and Off white (think you haul)

Upon receipt of the registration and license plates the holes in my forhead became driving lights. I am aware of the fact that in WI lights forward facing are not allowed above 54" but in a late night run to houghton MI for a Closed road race, hitting one deer is one to many. LIke driving 56 MPH I will take my chances.

Re: National School Bus Yellow

I went through some of this same stuff with a Medic One truck. The forward-facing red lights absolutely must go, and driving lights are a no-go because of max height limitations. All those driving lights you used to see on the roll bar of 4x4 pickups were illegal for the same reason; that's why you saw all those yellow moon-eyes covers over them most of the time.
Sure, you can get away with lots of stuff... but why be a ticket target?

Re: National School Bus Yellow

National bus yellow sux it powerful sux I'm paint'n my rig Miller welding machine blue,it will match the machine on the trailer I will be pulling. And the stop sign is gone as far as the lights go they got fed. regs. on those. About 25 yrs ago I stopped on the road with a clogged fuel filter,I made the mistake of turning on the eight ways I was informed soon there after by a Ohio state trooper this was not the proper pocedure and not to do it again. I begged his forgivness and promised to never do it again. I found the fuse and removed it the next day. In my travels on the road I have found that if you make a attemp to comply the man will help with the rest of it 90 percent of the time. They don't want to hassel you any more than you want be hassled. Unless its 1968 and you got shoulder length and your driving a old school bus painted like a american flag. Russell

Re: National School Bus Yellow

Paint: I intend to paint mine like a carrier borne airplane. Sky blue bottom, Navy blue top, no distinct dividing line. Yellow arrow with Orange RESCUE pointing to the door handle. no wings or propeller, that would be mega-doofic.

8 way lights: Outdoor speakers

Re: National School Bus Yellow

I have read and heard various ways to prep the bus for the new paint. Everything from just wiping down with thinner to full blown sanding. What works best?

Re: National School Bus Yellow

Iowa Code 321.373.6:
----------------------------------------------------------
No vehicle except a school bus shall be operated on a public highway if the vehicle is painted the color known as national school bus glossy yellow. A school bus which has been permanently converted for a purpose other than transporting pupils to or from school shall be painted a color other than national school bus glossy yellow, and shall have the "school bus" signs, stop arm, and the special signal lamps removed.
----------------------------------------------------------

By "special signal lamps" I assume they mean the upper warning lights on the front and back.
