Congrats, and welcome.

It's a good thing not to have to paint over the yellow. However, the small number of seats you have to remove from that bus isn't really giving you the entire experience.

You certainly won't be having any parking problems.

So tell us about what you're going to do to your bus. Pics for those of us that can't read please.

Oh yeah. Why "forbidden" to change your paint? I feel like that question was a setup.

Looks good to me. That's a nice looking bus, inside and out. Your wife is right, that doesn't need a paintjob. I just wondered who put down the law.

I've also got L-track on my entire floor and walls.

Does that run on 4 wheels or 6?

I like the way you think by using that type of bus.
