Yessssssssir Steve. Thanks, here's yesterday and today's progress....




Look at the Big head trouble here! . . . . . . . .











Got it home and covered now so I can get back to the final underbody cleaning and get the bus to the shop for paint...

I guess you guys understand more of why what we create here costs so damn much after this assembly?? I like Mike's determination.

I definitely understand and appreciate what goes into each build now! Shocked What a valuable learning experience this time on the 'Mountain ' has been. Cool

Finally finished removing paint/coatings from the bus. Took it for a 'sand cleansing' trailer ride yesterday and used an industrial vacuum at work to clear all the crevices......




Just got to paint/recoat the bottom and weld up several screw holes in the floor now before I take it to the body shop for massaging and paint. Cool

Nah, it's got the first coat of primer on it now so it doesn't look much different, the shop's painter has been ill for a few days so the paint got delayed... Sad
