Thanks Tango & Nat, I needed something a little out there.

On a different note, what do you with the rear heater/fans/heater hoses? Is there a use for them....anyone need them....or do I just chuck 'em with everything else?

I'm about to buy two new tires and a rear air bag.

Sooo, I finished wire wheelin'/sanding the insides of the bus and put on two coats of white rust paint. Going to patch a couple of holes by the wheel wells and lay some half in plywood over the existing floor. The back half I'm leaving for now, just want to get it mobile. This is more of a "lipstick on a pig build". Hoping to get 4-5 years outta this thing and I'd be happy.

Being the Mule Bus, would like to have said lipstick on an ass build, but we'll save that for another forum.

It costs extra but you can buy tires with date codes in the future.
