You might wanna have a decent seal on hand. I hear from a reliable source that the seals the average windshield company uses for buses are made out of dog turd and rubber bands.

Free enterprise or not - I was shocked that there would be that big of a markup between companies. At least electronic gadget companies compete for low prices - but when insurance is involved - they ...

Ok - help me out. I went to my FLAPS today and looked at primer. I didn't see anythi ...

I've bought panels from Bus Depot, best quality and fit. I also bought panels from another source but they were terrible.

I second this. I have now bought five separate panels from Bus Depot and ev ...

Geez Phyllis, you can do that job for under $20. Go to your local auto parts store and get some 100 grit sandpaper, some 60 ...

I lucked out with my 72 because someone already hacked (kinda poorly) in a removable hatch into my Riviera. In fact, I just did the fiberglass work on it this weekend. That will make life easy when I ...
