Nice work, and I love the nickname. I assume it's a play on "Mr. Bus" and "Missed the Bus"?

Yeah since I raised the roof it got bigger so it became Mr and I work out of town a lot so I miss the bus when I’m not home. And I’d be at the airport when my ship comes in so missing the bus would be the norm

Excellent job! For the front transition, how did you get from the riveted silver panels to the finished white look? Specifically, covering up the rivets? Bondo?

It was a lot of sanding like floating sheet rock but you have to be quick
