Was a good day! Picked up the bus today around 4pm. Very clean inside... and a little rusty all over, what's the chances of that 15 winters in Ontario salt. Bus company let me drive it home with their plates, two way radio, everything....threw me the keys and said bring me the plates and radio Thursday and I'll have a bill of sale for ya! Right on! Well Happy Canada Day to you to. Quick look over, 6 tires replaced, 4 new drum/shoes, 4 new shocks, new injector lines, new alternator all this past December and a full tank of fuel!

All I got done today was remove most decals, still have reflective tape to do....started to rain and ran out of day light.

Don't know the tranny yet other than 5 speed and it's governed at 69 mph.

Canada Day is tomorrow [July 1st], most things closed, so Thursday they're open and I can drop off the plates and what not.

Thanks on the buggy, the rail in behind is my brothers.

Happy Canada Day

Well this is the best I can do right now, the Canadian Flag is damp and tangled up.

Bus 27 ...painted like "THE JAM" ...rock stars dead at 27....hmmm seems like a lot of work for this rust bucket.

Easiest would be leave it yellow and put big black "S.S.TOOL BUS" and "DeWalt" stickers on it, but with the Dewalt haters, don't want to be shunned right off the bat.....kidding, my 18V XRP fleet has worked awesome for the last 8-10 years. Everyone has their brands!


IMG_3598.JPG
Next up would have been the "STOOL BUS" ....it's an old shitter. Hmmm can't see getting pulled over with that stuck on 'er. OK that's out.

Then came the "MULE BUS" ...well donkey didn't rhyme school and for the most part it'll be full of asses.
