Re: Smitty's Bus

How can you stand all that stupid laughing. They laugh at anything and everything. No matter if it's funny or not. Non-stop. Are they trying to convince us that they are funny?

I think in most places in this country the cell phone connection is what most people use. They don't work where I live.

I wouldn't give my hughesnet to my worst enemy. I have been trying to get out of my contract for over a year. Nothing but problems. Not to mention the humongusly ugly dish on the side of my house. It make the Sat. TV dish look attractive. Just so happens my bus is parked under it, The pics give you a little size ratio comparison if it was mounted on a bus some where But if that is your only option, you gotta do, what you gotta do.

Is it me or is it you? I don't hear them laughing. Do you hear them laughing even after you go to another scree? Do you hear them laughing even when you have turned off the computer?

I'm not talking about the voices in my head, I'm talking about the boob and tom show.

Re: Smitty's Bus

Smitty, are you happy with the paint so far? You used exactly what I plan on using (valspar tractor and implement, which I think is all TSC carries), so I am curious how durable it seems. I am planning on using the hardener. In your pics it looks really nice and glossy, too. Is that the case? I'm getting close to that part and am curious about your satisfaction level.

He's not happy with the paint. Honestly. I'm shipping him a funky shade of pink to pinstripe the baby.

Too late. Those cedar trims of yours look very pinky in picture.

Re: Smitty's Bus

I like the muffler idea! I see you used black iron pipe. What kind of muffler is that and how did you attach the pipe to the muffler?
