Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

Does anyone have any good ideas for locking the front door? there is a key hole on the outsided just to the right of the door, but it apears to do nothing. i bought a barn door latch and a pad lock, but i could figgure out a good way to mount it.

Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

that is a great idea!! i was actually looking at your bus the other day (very nice work) i wish i could do that, but this bus is owned by 7 (low budget) college students. i saw that you can get the remotes pretty cheap, but how much was the rest? that and i thing that my door opens differently than yours, the pole that is connected to the door is drawn twards the driver when you swing out the door release. is this still possible?

Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

I not sure what is going on, but the amber flashing lights on the top of the bus are not working front or back, do you have to do anything special to make them work? anyone know?

Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

also has anyone ever experimented with having a clear roof? they make that pro-rib skylight stuff that you can get in different lengths? not something in my budget, but would be interesting to see how it would turn out...

Funny you mention that, I was in Amsterdam last weekend and seen a bunch of these buses. They're school buses with retractable glass roofs - they use them for city tours.
