thanks guys! I like the retro looks... and am really pleased with the durability of the coach and chassis. Going to keep this old girl around for a while. We tried to get back to what it looked like when we bought it back in 07 and we got pretty close...

thank you all for the kind words! Its been very rewarding taking care of an older bus like this... trying to keep it as original as possible. I don't think it was ever designed or intended to be in a land fill after 20 years like 80% them are currently...
