She was a trooper !! Turning the bolt that turned the hardest lolol

Yeah on a trip cruise rocks.. ran mine the 100 mile trip home last night.. except during the time the texting fool in the benz in front of me was going from 50-60 up and down , finally I just stabbed it and got around him or her..

Amazing what you see sitting in the BigBoy seat driving ..

I forgot to mention there's a light over the cruise buttons that burns out the first day the bus is made I swear..

The bulb isn't replaceable and IHC doesn't have a clue what the part is . But I found that a bluebird dash lamp fits it perfectly, I know of got some spares around somewhere. I'll grab one.

earlier in the week they predicted a complete rain-out for saturday... seemed like we had maybe 30 minutes rain total if that and it was light..

I defimnitely need to find a place in florida to tear my DEV bus apart.. its the place to be.. (maybe not in the summer though when it rains 3X a day)...

Gona pick up some angle to finish the ribs for the skin, and a few pieces of square tubing tomorrow. Then the transition, then should be about good to go!
