Hey Tango. We've got to make use of every square inch of storage in these tiny buses. I'm sure you will find a way to use the left hand side for the storage of something. With all that shinny aluminum your bus must have been the Deluxe model--mine was the cheap model so the same door is just painted steel. It'll be fun someday to park our buses next to one another for a compare and contrast fest. Great minds and all that.

Love the diamond plate look, very classy. I'll be using that around my front entry steps very similar to this.

Tango, you just have to do that to balance things out---and besides mine has hammer tone painted steel diamond plate in the entry. We wouldn't want to get out of step here.

Tango, I'm curious too.......how WILL you move that big bench when it's finished? Seems too long and fragile to be lifted as one piece.

Howdy All --- Hey Jack, my entry steps are also old steel diamond plate with a ton of red lead paint. Just may leave'em that way.

As for the bench...it's not going anywhere. It has beaucou steel and concrete in the ground to make sure it doesn't walk away.

we had a 5 person concrete Sofa in our arts district in columbus.. for some reason they decided to move it.. im niot sure why I cant remember.. something about it going to an art museum... when they first tried to lift it, 2 rather large tractors with lifts tiped when they tried... they finally brought in a huge crane like what installs A/C units on buildings.. and a semi truck that had I dont know how many wheels on the flatbed.. it was a lot... that sofa was probably 1/3 the size of your bench... I believe that bench is there to stay no matter what happens.. !!

Ya...this was an on site build and will probably wind up around 5500 to 6000 pounds. And if anyone in the future wants to relocate it...well...I just hope they have that anti-gravity thing worked out by then.

<<<.this was an on site build >>>

That's what confused me.....why build a beautiful bench like that right up against a concrete wall topped with chain link with a mass of pipe racks behind it? Looks like it belongs in a landscaped flower garden or a campus quad.

That's just where the bar is located. Right next to a scaffolding company. But they do plan on constructing some sort of screen all along the fence behind it. Someday.

I fear for your bench......a drunk's head is harder than concrete and rebar.
