Re: The Brown Crown

Looks great. The lettering looks like it belongs there.

But being from Houston, I gotta' ask...do you get much grief what with CA plates and the "Astros" tag?

Re: The Brown Crown

I like that chrome lettering! Now what should I spell out on my bus? Hmmm... this is a dangerous line of thinking for me! Whatever I spell out, my wife will probably not appreciate it!

Re: The Brown Crown

I had some material I was going to use as curtains before I opted to go with roller shades in the bus. So I made some seat back cushions out of that material for my dinette area this weekend. I like the way it turned out, adds some color to the area. I also had save a few of the old seat cushions from her school bus days, so I was able to cut those open and recycle the foam padding for the new cushions at the table. I used velcro strips to hold the cushions against the panel board.
