Re: Putter's Bus

I vote black bumper... Guess what colour mine are now (hint... filthy white) and what colour they will be (hint... not white). One bumper down, one to go!

Re: Putter's Bus

almost have everything wrapped up, well as far as I am going right now. Genny runs great and is so quiet, with the A/C on you done even hear it. I made a mistake with the DVD/CD player. Its a home unit and it skips sometimes when going down the road. Any suggestions? I got my tag yesterday, $185 for tag plus taxes and registering , like $ 260 for it all... Will take some more pics at Talladega

Thanks for sharing that bit of information. I will learn from your mistake and use a regular automotive stereo with CD player when driving. My kids watch DVDs on our laptop when driving down the road, and rarely have any problems, but that is in the family minivan which rides smoother than a bus. We will test it in the bus when we take our next bus trip a few weeks from now.
