I WANT THE LITTLE GREEN TRUCK! I WANT THE LITTLE GREEN TRUCK! It'a SOOOOOO purty!

(Darn, Can't see the little green truck )


Slick job. Got the style of the older vehicles and the safety of the modern mechanicals. I do think the interior of the bus is too grey. You need to add some small touches of the exterior yellow to the interior (pillows, a throw rug, picture/poster, etc).

COOLEST. THING. EVER. Oh my Dog, oh my Dog, oh my DAWG!

I have been overwhelmed by the amount of totally gnarly awesomeness that I just cannot express into words how so bloody cool that is. Seriously, there are not enough words in the English language to say just how awesomecoolwicked that is. I may have to use another language or six entirely.

SHINY.

Nicely done! That gives me hope that ours will get there, someday.

Tango, thanks for asking about the windows. We're headed to Home Depot tomorrow!!! We were in the process of pricing glass and framing sliders ourselves....this will be so much quicker!

Re: 13 fun steps to a skoolie and a toad!

Love the Depot price but, sadly... it may not work for me. My buses body has a weird alignment between the inner & outer skins that may force me to go with the Peninsula solution (clamp ring type). Ouch.
