Re: The Magic Bungalow - 1974 Crown Supercoach - Update 11/3

Our view for two weeks:



We went to the Halloween Howler in Epping, NH, which included a 166 car enduro race. It was insane and very funny. Definitely want to go next year and get video!


All the cars are decorated for Halloween:


Getting started:




Getting the free wood stove from a messy house down the street (I'll post a better one when we clean it up)


Our little electric fireplace, the display doesn't work anymore but it still puts out heat:


The borrowed heat dish:


Guardian of the Beer and the Bus:


All three of us also got Acorn tattoos from a good friend of ours that is an apprentice about two hours away from where we're staying. I'll get some pictures of those also. We finally figured out why the bus has been pelted so violently - there are flying squirrels living in the tree next to us and they knock them down when they fly!

No painting today, it's the first 'snow' of the season. Cool to see (literally) but makes me glad we're going home thks coming weekend.

Almost done! Still need to pull the tape off the roof and do some detail work but that can wait for a warmer day.

We are REALLY stoked on how the paint came out, and the name change which is much more fitting.

Wow that turned out really good. Can't wait to see it in person. Everyone wants me to call mine the Humpback Whale.

The paint job looks awesome!

The yellow stripe is a nice reminder of the original color.
