It has been a while since I joined and have found that the people here are just awesome. They have been a tremendous help in getting more done on my hotrod bus. I have been researching and asking so many questions. The feedback and information has been very valuable and useful. Thanks ALL.

Here are some shots of the progress in my Photbucket Account.

The green and silver should look really cool!

I got a pair of those new Memory Foam shoe inserts. Hasn't helped much- When I walk to another room, I still can't remember why.

i like it as a bus owner i know that there feels like an acre of sheet metal to rework. I stripped 6 layers of paint off mine....shes a 30 footer,and i aint talking about how far to stand back!Good ideas can be found at skoolie.net [email:http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg224/timbuket/Bus1.jpg]http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg224/timbuket/Bus1.jpg[/email] ] [email:http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg224/timbuket/addnewpictures084.jpg]http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg224/timbuket/addnewpictures084.jpg[/email]

Thanks Rich.

Timbuk, I concur. I think of the bodywork it needs and get overwhelmed, but have to remind myself it isn't going to get done over night. I just have to concentrate and eat the elephant one bite at a time, one panel at a time. So I'll just have to get her running and driving and then take it slow with the cosmetic stuff.

Well, we have a good update from 2008! Fred's been busy with a number of things ... should have the bus going to the cruise-ins very soon! Looks good.

Check the link in his signature line.

Fred has made a specific album to go along with the Gallery story. I think he has to hunt down some of the photos to scan and upload. So, check back.

Good to have these old buses in here. Oh well, they are all neat to have in here.
