Re: Tailgater Conversion

Welcome to the madness!

I really love the styling of the P30 chassis busses. There's just something about the lines of the front end.

I even toyed with the idea of getting one to be the tow-behind vehicle behind my pusher, but I just couldn't justify it.

I think you'll be quite happy with your bus. I look forward to seeing your conversion.

Re: Buckeye Tailgater.... IN PROGRESS

Hate to say it, but as a shopper, everything you've posted is a screaming warning sign to get your money back and find someone else.

Usually, this may be accomplished by calling your credit card company and explaining the situation. They can put a "hold" on the charge amount from that company. And... since some companies have time limits on when they will pursue fraud, communicating with your credit card company right away is key. They are just as unhappy when dealing with bad companies as bad customers, so call them first thing! If they can't help you, then fine. But if they can, you'll be ahead in the long run (and maybe the company will catch a clue and have better service).

GOOD LUCK!

Re: Buckeye Tailgater.... IN PROGRESS

What did you use to do the grinding? An actual grinder with a large wheel? Or a grinder with a sandpaper buffing wheel? Or something else? You guys did an excellent job!

Re: Buckeye Tailgater.... IN PROGRESS

You did well, but you didnt b**ch enough. A master would have gotten a discount on top of the can.

Sorry, couldnt say that without laughing. Yeah, if you complain a little, you generally get stuff. Try it when your cellphone or tv or some other service is almost up. Tell them that you are thinking of switching to another company and they will give you stuffs to keep you there.

Re: Buckeye Tailgater.... IN PROGRESS

Looks great! The stripe all the way would have been cool, just like the helmet, huh? I wanted flames on mine originally, but I settled as well.

Re: Buckeye Tailgater.... IN PROGRESS

The decals TOTALLY make the bus look super professional. Great job!

What paint did you use to spray the seat cushions? I'd be a little worried that the paint will come off on whoever sits/leans against them. Curious why you didn't just use a different color fabric/vinyl?

Congrats again on a fine looking paint job.
