Sounds like I can go ahead with my lower tail light delete, then.
Guess it was just some sort of redundancy then?

Some pics from yesterday's WC lift removal.


We extended the lift, lowered it to the truck bed, then unbolted it. Easy peasy!

Nice to have the space and to get rid of the dead weight.

The line shows where I WAS gonna cut out and repair, but now I'm gonna just slap a panel over the whole area below the rub rail on down to the bottom of the existing panel after I cut out the rust.

Yeah, I love getting more/new tools!

Got an email this morning. The duck ornament is on its way! Should be here by the weekend. Totally unnecessary and expensive as all hell. But one of the few splurges I thought I would make. Nice new paint job will look GREAT with a shiny chrome hood ornament. And maybe a new chrome front bumper.

After pricing WC door parts and finding scant availability coupled with insane prices, I've decided to either go with an RV door back there or just panel over the whole WC door hole and throw an RV window or two on the new panel.
I wish I could find a really nice WC door used somewhere. But there just aren't a lot of buses in the junkyards anywhere around here and the few used bus parts I can find are all Thomas.

Oh well. I guess paneling over that WC door WILL help make it look a bit more "MH".
