That's a nice looking bus! I dig the side doors. I'd probably delete the front door and just leave those big side doors.

I hear the 6.9l diesel is a dependable engine, but slow...

It looks to me like the side doors are just painted on the metal. What's that French term for painted-on details that means "fool the eye?"

I thought the same thing and thought about Wile E. Coyote painting the fake tunnels

I think the term you are searching for is Microsoft Paint

Thanks. I knew that's what it was, but also knew I would misspell it badly and embarrass myself.
