I think that the light covers look great. Awesome job of cutting those circles with a dremel. You certainly have a steady hand.

My hat's off to you, I have never found a good use for those little wheels, if I had tried to do that I would have about 5,000,000 broken wheels and not one circle cut out.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Well........ Let's just call it peach......... sounds good to me!
But it sure looks pink in the picz.

For the price we can live with it, you can always change it later when you get the bus finished/ or almost finished, we are never done.

Works for me to call it Peach, but either way, it looks good in the installation
