Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

you want to keep the lines that run to the defroster and back. the remainder can just be blocked off. and if you want to have NO lines inside the bus, you can always run hard lines underneith the bus to the defroster.

Do you mean to say that you don't like "Institutional Green"? I've heard they paint psych wards that colour because it's supposed to be "calming". I think the patients are too nauseated from staring at that colour! One of my high schools was painted that colour for a few months. Attendance dropped (students & teachers), cafeteria sales plummeted, even grades dropped. The head of the local hospital's psych ward had a talk with the school board and the school was repainted "Navajo White".

yes the green definitely has a calming effect. makes you want to give up your will to move forward. doesn't help that it was grungy as well as noxious. it amazing how a new lighter color can make a space much more cheerful.

My Wayne has that same color. It's an 86. I thought the maintenance guy painted it. I didn't know it came from the factory that way.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

i think the double latching assy on the side door is a tad overkill...

guess they were worried about the crum crunchers using their prybars on the main one...
