No wipers, no brakes. Leaving June 2nd. Uh oh.

Thomas flat front FE, so it has the swing out doors the wipers are mounted on. The arms are all pretty buggered up so that when I turn on the wiper, it works until I am driving, then it wraps around...

PB blaster hasn't made a dent in much on this bus, sadly.

Re: air brake failure

I wanted to move the bus for Halloween last year, so I fired it up, and headed on down the road. Didn't check the brakes. :(

Help with Utah registration?

I am coming from Michigan, where the inspection was pretty lax. No emissions, basically only checked for operation of lights, and that the school bus stuff was removed. Started, stopped, okay, have...

Re: school bus turned motor home

Re: Tankless waterheaters

Wasn't someone here going to make a thread about theirs? Installed, and working, but haven't heard a peep yet. Did I miss it? This is about the only water heater we could possibly afford. :D

Re: After market upgrades for 5.9

Re: Dont speed...

Bush on a pogo stick! Wow. That was moving. I noticed that ads in other countries are always so much better. Especially the PSA's.

Re: Slab Cab'n

Cool looking exhaust!
Are you going to paint your wheels? I have the same wheels, and can't decide whether to paint them a different color, or maybe just a shinier coat of black.

Re: Canadian Skoolie Project

I just cut a large piece out, stuffed it in the wheel well, and taped it once, on top of the tire. They stay for days through rain even so far. Good place to spray test sprays too. I was concerned at...

Re: My new 1996 E350 World Trans Shorty
