Roxy and I went out to do a little decal removal.
Its brutally bright and hot out, so we retired early since I can't even eat till tomorrow afternoon.






















Now time to drink a delightful laxative shake in preparation for this colonoscopy tomorrow.

taking off reflective tape when its bright is almost as bad as being hot.. however the stuff pulls off better when its warm..

I guess one advantage to being up north is that its nicer to work on a bus when its 54 outside than 84... looks like the stuff is at least being reasonable to take off. your bus paint looks in good shape too!

The sun and heat definitely make decal removal go a lot quicker!

I'll be ditching them. They aren't legally required, so out they go.
My bus is visible enough.

No offense, but its the little things like this that make a paint job look really good. I understand you leaving yours, to each their own.
Most people paint over them because they're lazy and don't want to put in the real work to do a real paint job.

Yeah.
There are pics of them pulling in the driveway!

Heading in for colonoscopy and endoscopy today. They're going to biopsy some stuff, too. Yesterday was brutal with all the laxatives and that gallon of salty nasty stuff that makes you poo straight water.
Haven't had anything to drink since yesterday. Can't have anything at all till the procedure and it isn't until 1:45. Man't its gonna be a long day.
