If anyone traveling through FL (or located here) who could help with welding and fab on a roof raise, I'll pay you good $$$. Maybe we could all get together and do an amish style "roof raising"?!

I might be able to get away for a day of central Florida bus labor. Keep me in mind.

Jeep, bus, repeat.

Everyone chime in and suggest when. We have one for march.
I'm open to having this whenever you all want to. March sounds good to me.
