Well, I'm not sure what happened to you, Elliott, but if you ever come back you might like to know that Tim at UTB is parting out a TC2000 which means you could probably get some rub rails.

He also has the engine, tranny, some body panels, front and rear axles minus the rear hubs, etc.

Ok.... I'll try this again....

There is more than one way to skin a roof. This bus is 2 doors down from where I'm working on my bus, they use it mostly for race track camping. I was told they raised it 20" to accomodate the windows....

I'm here! I'm here! Nothing "happened to me". I just had to make a living for a while. Just
got in from Salt Lake City.

Brought home sheet aluminum to finish skinning Millicent. Trailer side panels with factory
white paint. FREE!

As for the shiny forehead, I plan to paint a logo on there.
Gotta get som... zzzzzzzzzzz

elliot,

I've actually tossed around the idea of being a trucker. The thought of being paid to drive through some fairly spectacular scenery seems kind of appealing. I 'spose being stuck in traffic in LA probably takes a little of the fun away from it, though.

Can you actually make a reasonable living at it and still get home to see the wife and kiddies from time to time? Is 44, as of yesterday, too old to get into that racket?

Huh boy. Well, it's my own fault -- since I mentioned it.

I'll be happy to discuss it to any length. By PM and/or e-mail. Check your PM box in a
few minutes, Pete.
