This morning i found a hitch from an F250 for $25!
The guy even delivered it.
This hitch is in way better shape and is way beefier than the Toyota one.
I removed what little rust there was, it was very minor, just where the paint had flaked off.
I started to cut the welds but I ran out of cutting wheels. Here are the pictures...

(is any body having trouble viewing the pictures? on my PC it acts like there are no pictures but on my phone i can see them fine [posted from PC])

That looks like one of the spectacular graffiti alleys in Toronto, but I suppose any big city could have something similar. Where is it?

Ah! Beautiful! I was in fact recently reading up on the Berlin wall, but the old pictures in the article were of a much more drab looking structure I'm glad it's so colourful these days

This is how I built my hitch for the bus.

I got out to work on the buses today.
I think i did pretty well for only having 4 hours there.
First thing I did was temporarily install a window AC on account of me not wanting to die of heat stroke.
The paint will need a light sanding, it ran really badly. Probably on account of it being 35C with the humidity.
I also stared removing wiring for the many safety switches and 8 ways.
