The key hole on mine is on right side of door. Mid way up. It runs to a relay type deal that releases the locking deal to open close door.

Also do people normally get the itch to get another bus before the 1st one is done? I mean man I have had some issues on the bus Brain l lock ups just flat out headaches trying to figure how things will fit / work but man is it fun. Is that why I keep reading some are on 2nd or 3rd bus or more?

I'll have to check and see if they offset the locking mechanism or something. It's a mystery.

When you commit your design in the bus you're currently working on, you always get better ideas or see better designs, not to mention getting better buses. They're still pretty cheap compared to anything else out there considering the amount of space.

Even in real estate, there's always a better house somewhere. Don't you have things that you'd change if you did your build again? Besides, it gets easier when it's not your first time.

I thought I had a picture of the door. Well I do just don't show the key hole. Its a round knob type. It had a rubber cover that screwed on but I could not get the key to work with it on. Mine is not air its all electric. Right under the arm handle for the door lock is were everything is. You can even here it click when you turn the key.

I remember a LONG time ago when I was a kid a driver of a grayhound bus showed me a button on the front of bus that looked like an emblem. Push it and it would release the lock in side. Don't know if school busses have that or not

Ya your right I just didn't expect it to come this fast.

Next one would be longer. I jumped on this one for diff issues. Don't get me wrong this one works I'd just go bigger next time.

Sometimes I think I need more space, but that's a lot more area to heat up. I've had short buses and long buses, and now I'm in a medium bus. Short buses are tight to fit in, but if you get rid of the stuff you don't need it's not that bad. More space equals more junk to haul around.

I'm happy with this bus right now because it's got completely flat floors. That sure makes it easy to arrange things the way you want them instead of working around the wheel wells.

Makes sense. I had the mind set of all busses are the same. Never realized till late that you can get one with a flat floor. Makes things easy. I going to try and get a couple pics up of the door lock today of how mine is.

Bottom right is the relay I was talking about. It lifts the lock deal just enough to get the handle out when you pull on the outside of the door
