i have the chevy/gm manual for 98-2010 and can help with that part for what it is worth.
nothing bus body specific.

Hey, sorry for the, uh, 3-month delay? Seems I didn't even subscribe to my own thread!

Anywho, it's been a while, but thank you both for responding!

Jolly Roger bus 223: That would be a great help. I guess Collins bought Corbeil out when they went down the tubes. So I'm wondering if they used the leftovers from Corbeil to build the minis. It's been a bit weird working on an American chassis with a Canadian coach that doesn't exist anymore and it's all metric accept for some AC parts. So yes, if you're still willing, I'd love to hear about what you've discovered!

musigenesis: Haha, I'm not really a 'traditional' sports fan (more stage rally, cycling, triathlon, etc.), so I would say I'd be more of a Chevy Cavalier fan. We changed the color semi-recently too, and it now has a white top and the body is a light green that was used on 1959-1963 VW Beetles.

Also, we're a bit further along than what's in the blog, but if you're interested in that, it's

Thanks again for responding and apologies for the lack of mine!
