Re: The Brown Crown

I want to install a nice horn on mine... I plan on making a pull thingy like the truck drivers though, I've always wanted to pull on a horn like that while driving down the road since I was a kid...

Re: The Brown Crown

You really want to get attention?
Those "train" air Horns; but where you have your horn anyone not knowing might leave a dent in the roof above the drivers seat.

Re: The Brown Crown

I haven't done anything to the cockpit area of the bus and it looks ugly. So I spent today building a new dash-top. When it's sanded smooth, I will stain it the same color as my other cabinets and then seal it with a nice varnish. The lower portion of the front area will be painted with a hammered finish, but haven't quite decided on what color yet. The current black really doesn't go with the rest of the bus.

Re: The Brown Crown

Sweeeet! That's gonna' look great. It could almost do double duty as a spare bunk! Whatever final finish you choose, try to get the most UV resistant you can find. That area's gonna' see a lot of sun.

Re: The Brown Crown

Thanks Mikey. Got the stain and varnish finished on it yesterday. Now got to work on the lower portion of the dash.
