Re: MegaBus project

Hi Everyone ....

Just wanted to add a few photos for now. I had Sam Drinnin and Matt Shearer of Drinnin's Services
install my door, do a little body work and paint my bus. I'll probbably go back and add some color eventually ...

They are in Desoto Mo, and can be reached at 636-586-4283 if you are interested in getting any work done.

There are more photos on my online album whic is listed in my signature.

Thanks for looking!

Re: MegaBus project

Nice paint job! It looks a lot like my bus, except the quality of your paint job is far superior. Mine looks okay from 10ft, but up close mine looks pretty mottled. I just didn't get a good spray pattern.

Re: MegaBus project

nice bus, great paint, was wandering about the flashing lights on the top, is it ok for you to leave them red and amber lens on?

keep up the good work

Re: MegaBus project

Thank you all for your kind notes. I am considering using the clear covers that I have heard folks here talk about on the front.
Maybe move all the reds to the back and rewire for high brakelights.
I am open to suggestions. I'm not sure what is legal or not here in Missouri.

Joe

Re: MegaBus project

@CAMO-MONSTER


For the two bunk beds I ordered 2 foam mattresses of them see below:

Foam Factory Inc.
22800 Hall Rd
Clinton Twp., MI 48036

PHONE: 586-627-3626
FAX: 586-627-5830
EMAIL: info@foambymail.com
WEBSITE: http://www.thefoamfactory.com

Code Name Quantity Price/Ea. Total
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CM Cushion or Mattress, HD36 Foam - Reg (M) 2 $65.39 $130.78
Dimensions: A3.00 x B35.00 x C76.00


Then I had an upholsterer make a slip cover for each $25 each.


The master bunk is a new mattress that goes in a foldup couch that I got new on CraigsList for $30 ... it pretty much sucks but better than nothing .... I'll probbably order a new one at some point like the others and have a slip cover made for it too. Probbably do correct dimensions for a King @ 4" thick

The 2 foam mattresses I ordered are awesome, super duper!

Thanks!
