Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Thanks for the tip. I live in New England so its hard to find a bus around here that does not have some type of rust or rot. This bus actually came from Maine and they have tough winters up there. lol

Thats a great idea Smitty! I actually have some old road signs I used to collect. I just need to decide which sign to use. LOL!

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

I saw the "Falmouth," and was wondering MA or ME, though there are probably others.
Nice bus. I guess the rust is the offset for scoring all the cool features, high roof and all.

Thanks for the compliments. Redbear, that is Falmouth Maine. I thought it was Mass myself at first.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Thats a good idea Smitty. I actually should have waited to put the patches on until just before putting down the new plywood. That way I can get the maximum prep work done.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Here is the floor all painted with some duct tape covering the seat bolt holes. I will be covering the tape with some roof tar.

Also, Smitty I took your advice and took up the patches and sealed underneath then riveted them back on and sealed on top of the patches.

Nice work on the patches!

That empty bus is just begging for it... And it looks so nice and big inside.
