Pictures a little dark, but you can tell the color scheme and BTW the orange will be on the rims, too! uploadfromtaptalk1455890034617.jpg

Semi-final product. Not too bad, for first try! uploadfromtaptalk1455890440758.jpg

Aaaand we finally have a generator!!!!!
It's the inverter/quiet gen from ryobi I picked up at the "big orange box". Have researched for quite some time, and this imho was the best option for me as for performance vs price. Haven't fired it up, yet....

I like your bus. Don't see too many 5 window buses.

I've been looking at that unit as it is half the cost of the Honda, but some of the reviews were less than stellar. I will be interested to see how it works out for you. So far, all my Ryobi tools have been problem free and have worked well, hopefully the generator is the same for you!

Exactly....! Very little (but very bad) bad reviews, so I took the plunge. I also have the ryoby pressure washer (2800psi max, I think) and besides having to clean the spark plug once, worry free after cleaning our deck twice, cleaned the house once, my in-law even used it for her deck....and I'm almost positive the engines in ryoby units are Hondas. Not sure about the electrical....
I'll keep you posted on performance ;)
