Haha, well I got rid of the rest of them, the driver's side.

The only decal remaining is the large "SCHOOL BUS" above the windshield.
May knock that out in a little while or just do it tomorrow.

While prepping for paint, I'm gonna shop for some clean 22.5x7.5 ball seat alloys for this thing. Think some shined up decent used alloys on the front and outer rears would really make a nice new paint job pop.

It's looking good. Weird how some places take all the school wording off before you get it but they let you guys drive all that way. I think the lettering does help with the invisibility of buses.

I'm jealous of your engine accessibility.

FL really doesn't care as long as your tag is current. School bus yellow is legal here, too!

I wasn't talking about the yellow. Here you're not allowed to have the school bus wording, anywhere, on a decomissioned bus. That's what I meant by it helping to keep you invisible during the interstate drive home.

Most of the bus people I meet here still have yellow buses. I just didn't want to be yellow out in the woods. Other drivers are definitely less tolerant now that I'm all painted. Weird.

I learned in Ohio that the law is "flawed".. written way back when it omnly states that "church busses" have to be painted away friom yellow and have the school lights covered up...

my guess is the law was written when 99.9% of old school busses were sold to churches... I mightve kept the DEV completely original... as a school bus..

Josh and Hillary are arriving tomorrow. I'm hoping he can help shine some light on my electrical problem.
When do you think you'll be back down this way? Would be nice to get a photo of all the shorties together.
