Aside from the good/bad luck with the leaf spring. The oil on your shoes could be the bus's way of saying that you're its owner now :P

It's an old joke among the mechanics I grew up with. Once you were sprayed with oil by whatever vehicle you owned or if you shed blood while working on it(after recently buying it), then that means the car/truck/bus has claimed you as its owner and that car/truck/bus will always take care of you The opposite being that if nothing happens, something bad will happen. This was fifteen some odd years ago, but it has yet to be proven wrong. Yes it's a silly stupid superstition, still fun to think about though.

I worked on the bus this past weekend, here's a link to the video on my YouTube page. Please subscribe to my page as I'll continue to post progress as it happens.

If it was me, I'd add a pane of glass or plexiglass or something to replace the flashers above the windshield. I remember someone else on the forum doing that to get a nice big view, can't remember who it was though. At least you have good weather for it. It's been raining over and inch a day here.

The larger window would be pretty cool. I think I'm going for more storage space up front, maybe a few cabinets and a shelf space for books or something. Seems I'll have to be very mindful of storage in this tiny space.

I'll keep on posting for sure, it's always cool to look through everyone's threads. I hope I can create the same for others.
I sure hope it turns out amazing, I have a lot of work ahead of me!! ;)

I hate air powered drills, but your doing great.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks.....
I would tend to agree with you on certain levels, but not all air drills are created equally. I've worked in the aircraft and auto body industries for quite some time and have used many different brands/styles. Most do suck!! But, the drill I'm using in this video is made by a Swedish company called Atlas Copco. This is the smoothest running and must trigger responsive ergonomic drill I have ever used. Every electric drill I've ever used becomes cumbersome and uncomfortable in my hands after many hours of use, not to mention they get hot..
I guess I've just used air powered tools for so long that I've become very used to them and their efficiency.
