You mounted your air horns under you side window. Mine are so loud, I plan to mount them about ten feet above my roof.

I like the contrast between your window pillars and the rest of the bus.

This is an area that my wife has recently shocked me. She is very compassionate, quiet, doesn't like to rock the boat, and doesn't get mad easily. She wants me to get train horns, lol...

Re: La Tortuga...updated 08-26-13

I also like the black window pillars. I've seen that on other buses and always liked the look of it. I've also seen people paint the actual window frames black, but that seems like a lot of work, and I'd be afraid the paint would start chipping off. Did you use flat black, or is that satin?
