Whistle Tips

Hey all, we (collectively) just scored a 1987 Ford B-700.

It's the baddest bus in all of America right now, and we haven't even done anything to it but taken the seats out of it.

It used to carry illegal immigrants from Mexico damn near to the Canadian border. So what did we do? We stopped them. It's our bus now.

This bus is about to be converted to a level of awesome that isn't even comprehendable to humanity.

This is where you come in, Skoolie. We do have one questions in this epic feat.

Does anyone know where we can score some WHISTLE TIPS? Woo-Woo.

Love,

J.O. Bros

Re: Whistle Tips

I'm not sure if you're talking about the exhaust mod. If you are, you'd probably need to make it yourself or take it to a muffler shop. It really shouldn't be a hard process.

Watch out though, there are a lot of areas that it's illegal to have one. In areas that it's not illegal, you'll probably attract unfavorable attention for the local mounties and they'll find something to fine you for.

Trust me, you're already attracting attention, driving a Skoolie. I really don't think that you want it to be negative. Remember, even if you're totally legal (which stats show we are all breaking the law in one form or another) and the constable is wrong, it will be a real hassle, not to mention expensive, to straighten out.

Trust me, you don't want the attention.

Re: Whistle Tips

i don't know where to find an exhaust whistle...iv'e never actually heard one before, but there is a reference to them in public act 300 here in michigan, which is the statute that allows police fire ems to have emergency equipment like lights/sirens. PA300 Talks about a siren, horn, bell, or exhaust whistle blah blah blah

anyhow.....

using it on the road is probably akin to using a siren and not really legal, but that doesn't mean you can't use it other places....like while camping, or parades etc.

where to find.....

i have seen propane flame throwers that have a whistle on them to make noise when the thing fires......i think perhaps the whistle came from an old steam engine.

there can't be much rocket science to making a whishtle, there has to be a place online that has instructions.

have you tried ebay?

Re: Whistle Tips

Great quote, Phillbus914. You are awesome and I'd like to add you to my Skoolie buddy list. However, while you are quite the awesome fellow, you still are not as awesome and magnificent as our B-700. None of us can ever reach those heights.

While staying off the radar seems like the best option 99% of the time, our bus will fall in the 1% category. It will be so awesome and beautiful that no law enforcement will want to endanger our adventure. Even NASA will have a hard time deciphering whether the bus is a blue whale, a spacecraft, or the most bad-ass school bus in the Northern Hemisphere. When it drives by, people will have to hot-shot a dose of heroin into their veins just to accept it's presence.

Whistle tips are key; it will really lock it all together. People, dogs, cats, infants, birds, chipmunks, koalas - they will all need to be alerted so they will have ample time to react to our skoolie. Some will flock to see the sight - others will have to run and hide.

I haven't been able to contact Bub Rub or Lil' Sis yet. I suspect they have been taken prisoner by Arabs or other anti-American terrorists.

Help us out, Skoolie crew. We'll donate at least 100 pictures if we can just score a link or some location for pre-fashioned Whistle Tips. Whatever the case may be - we must have Whistle Tips.

<3 <3

Well well somebody is on a high horse.
I'm sure with your abilities of making the most magnificent bus in America it should not be to hard to figure out how to make a whistle. If you watch the youtube video it pretty well shows you whats needed (not much) nothing a welder couldn't come up with in short time.

look at this and then build one a little bigger for your bus

BTW Google has many links to Exhaust whistle

If you really want whistle tips, you can find them under exhaust whistles. Here is a link for all of the whistle tips you may want:

Re: Whistle Tips

Your B-700 is only awesome if it has a 6.6 or a 7.8....and if you have one of those you already have a whistle in the form of a screaming turbocharger. Seriously...between Ford air brakes and that louder-than-the-average bear turbo do you really need a whistle tip?

And the quote was great.

Re: Whistle Tips

Chuck - it ain't no motor. Don't ever call it that. It's a diesel powered gift from Zeus he sent straight from the heavens and landed right here in America.

the_experience03, well, let me explain something before your clam-sacks get all bunched up. You'll always be 2nd loser if your attitude stays like that. The B-700 is awesome no matter what's under the hood. So awesome your brain might deflate just from looking into a mirror and saying 'B-700 is my Jesus' three times. Just for your reference, refer to what I already told Chuck. It's no 6.6 or 7.8, it's a lighting bolt sealed in a bottle with 12 pissed off badgers.

And for any na-sayers out there, here's a simple equation to get kick your motor-mouths into idle.

http://www.google.com/trends?q=bus%2C+t ... all&sort=0

Buses are steady, tips are declining. We're about to bring back tips, but we need to go full circle back to a better era. Hop in your Deloriums, strap on your seat belts, and be ready to go full-circle. 2004, here we come. It's going to be like a reverse time bomb of greatness. Exponetionally, incredibly, indefinitely, and most definitely - American.

Last but not least, I give you a picture-present of epic proportions. I hope this clears up any confusion thus far:
