evening,
couple ?
What bus are you guys talking about?



Gordon have you used the Liquid Metal Polish?
I talked about using a metal polish on the MH on the forums, and I see after zooming in on the product from AutoSol I think I see a boat which is fiberglass, and I wonder if that would work the same. I bought what I used (different product) @ the car show last year and they were not there this summer. Call me a nut but it worked magic on the oxidation removal, and waxing a breeze. K secret is out.....

I tried the AutoSol metal polish and have not gone any where else. Have some Mothers metal polish and does not work as well. I found out about the AutoSol from a trucker on a job I was managing. He came to work one day with his wheels (winter logging truck) looking like new.

Good Afternoon, Dodging tornado watches and severe thunderstorms today, none right here yet. Finished the back wall of the paint booth (not pretty but it'll be functional) and put in two front corners while I was at it. I might have to frame the rest and just leave it here for now. Other then that nothing new.

In the old days 40+ years ago I had friends who converted a old bus. I would never consider doing it now. You can buy a good motorhome with slides for what you would spend converting a bus and it wouldn't be as functional.
Now if you have deep pockets and want something special Texas Custom Coach will make you whatever you can dream.

Paint truck restoration.

I have been following your rebuild thread and now the truck restoration. We own a 1997 F250 that we bought new. Each year we take it to our body shop guy and he takes care of the rusty wheel wells ect. Then it goes to the rust proofer. Last year he said the truck is getting tired. I don't know if he can't or won't work on it any more. It is a gas truck with 1&1/2 cab,fiber glass cap and an 8ft. box. Also 4x4. We have a great place that takes care of the mechanicals. It has about 100,600.00 miles on it. It is not ready for the junk yard yet. We have priced a new truck at about 71000$!! Crazy. Been looking for a used one. None seem to have the eight foot box. May have to camp out at your place to learn how to do body work. Looking forward to your next video.

Good Morning, Sam, Thanks, Here in the northeast it's very hard to find a body shop to work on rust, they say there's no money in it, everybody wants collision work, could be the same with your guy? My criteria for keeping a vehicle is the frame, if the frame is in good shape I can usually fix the rest. I had a used car dealer locally that went down south and bought vehicles and brought them back up here, my shop would go thru them replacing whatever they needed, as long as the body was straight and the frame was good he bought'em. I just can't justify paying more for a vehicle then I paid for my house . We're going to replace the driver's side rocker today. Here's the video on the last rocker.
