Thanks, super pleased to find a 7.3
First few things were to replace windshield wipers, remove remaining lettering (used a razor blade, well, actually 5 razor blades, and some mineral spirits), and clean it out. Found lots of Mexican candy wrappers, melted lollipops, exploded pens, broken ear buds, no treasures.
Also removed the "Zonar" RFID tags from everywhere, a few other safety things, camera mounts, and the crossing arm. Also removed the dome mirrors that extended out in front of the hood, although, I have to say I was torn about whether or not to remove them. I think the deal breaker was that while driving I caught myself gazing into them on multiple occasions, mesmerized by the unique point-of-view! Probably not helping my driving skills. I mean, I'm already blonde, and a woman, so that's two strikes against me . . . don't need more distractions. Trying to think of unique uses for them now that they're off the bus.
I have a friend who's a tractor mechanic and needed a new wheel chair lift for his church bus, so I gave it to him for free, and he uninstalled it and repaired a leaky wheel seal for a thank you! I actually had it on craigslist for a few days, had a few bites for a couple hundred bucks, but no follow through. I was glad to not have to uninstall it myself.
