some photos from my trip up to KCW to pick up my new rack !!!


This is one the few photos I have seen where it looks like the cut wheel wells belong. Like obviously they must be hacked to handle that terrain.

Bus looks much better with the new rack. I would throw some Hurst bumpers on it as well.

i think this one would be great with Byce bumpers, and i agree that cut wheel wells are not bad at all if they are cut with a purpose.

would never cut one myself, but if it came that way, part of it's history...

Not too off the beaten path because I'm only a block away from my house. Great time to visit the desert, just watch the weather/wind reports.

Beautiful bus, beautiful place. I went up in that area with my folks a couple of years back. The views are incredible.

I was waiting for someone to point that out! Laughing It was probably a loose ground as it was working when I went to check it at the next stop. (The bulb housing ground on that side is still an alligator clip Embarassed )
