Ha, I need one of those. I bought a few "STUDENT DRIVER" magnetic signs with the idea of slapping them on my bus and warning people away, but I've somehow convinced myself that they would attract police attention so I never use them.

I had "Patience please, This vehicle is aerodynamically challenged" on the back of my first bus.

Great progress on your build.
