Back to the bus build
I drove my bus down to Charles Town, WV to visit so friends for the 4th of July, and to show off the bus. Then headed up to York, PA to visit and show off some more. Buy the time I was back home I had logged in 200 miles. The last hour heading home I was very comfortable driving. I used the bus today to run some errands and to pick up what I needed to start removing the decals. The wheel base is short enough to make driving through town not to much of a hassle.
I found out using a speed check that at 50 mph the bus is really going 54 mph. That makes my max speed of 63 more like 67. That explains why I was passing cars at 55, when in reality I was going 59.
I spent about eight hrs today and almost got all the decals and reflectors removed. This is not a fun job in 95 degree heat.
She is cleaning up pretty good. I still have a few reflectors on the rear to remove. I plan to wash and sand down the bus tomorrow. If I get lucky I will start masking it off for paint. I would like to spend Sunday painting the bus. I'm only going to paint the light tan color, and will paint the green later on after I do the roof raise and put in the windows. This is just to get me past inspection.
Oh, I almost forgot. I removed the front thingy on the bumper and the stop sign.
