Re: El Tortuga...update 11-30-12!

I like your horns where you put them and that you painted them the bus color. Mine are at the top above the rear view mirror. I chipped one (*pouts*) parking it around a tree branch, but just a dime sized piece.. I can't sweat it. Haven't honked mine yet and I didn't put together that it was an 'air' horn.

Cool beans.

Re: El Tortuga...update 11-30-12!

between family and being sick, I haven't had very much bus time.

I did pickup a bunch of supplies from lowes yesterday and.......

I started on the "pin stripping" for El Tortuga the other day


I found a turtle I liked and manipulated the legs so they are alittle different


cut onto vinyl

"weeded"

cut out


this about 80 of them so far, only need about 60 more

The turtles look pretty good! I guess it didn't take you too long to figure out that vinyl cutter

Re: El Tortuga...update 11-30-12!

so many turtles..................... so little time
why not just one giant sea turtle?
painted on the side of the bus?
now that would be different......

Love the turtle pinstriping. I'd like to do the same thing but the health department might give me some grief.
