Re: Wildcat Lodge

Great job on skinning in those windows. Now that there is primer on there it looks like the windows were never actually there to begin with. I would almost think it wasn't a school bus to begin with. That is the kind of look I like. Can't wait to see the finished paint job on this one. Keep up the great work and your attention to detail.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Thanks for all the comments. Smitty - as to the antenna we want something that works going down the road so that limits us to a boomerang type or the winguard 2000. I haven't decided yet. Any thoughts on over the road off air antennas are appreciated from the group.

I purchased seatbelts from http://www.gotbelts.com for about $14 each. We bolted them into the existing seat rail and ran them through the back of each of the couches. We will add the dinettes later, but had to get the couches done as it is going to the upholstery shop tomorrow. We also had to add the keyed lock to the back door.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

We are taking the bus to get upholstery tomorrow and should have it done by the end of the week. Given that, we had to put all the stuff back on the exterior to get it to go down the road. Here are some pics of the first coat of rolled primer ready to go down the road. The mirrors turned out pretty nice with just some black spray paint.
