Bus looks the same, shop looks a little different. Who knows why projects stall - I find it difficult to run a small business and also find time for personal projects - hopefully in the future I figure out how to juggle both.

Completely understand.

Did you have OG paint to match or did you just find something that was close?

Greg, it took me 14 years start to finish (well, almost finished, if there is such a thing), so plug away, slowly but surely, and you will get there.

I do not know how many they painted in this exact color scheme, but there are two other survivors. One is owned by Jim Phillips who resides in Massachussets, and the second is owned by someone who would likely prefer not to be named in California.


Yours, Jim's or the other guy's? Wink

I have spoken to a weaver about reproducing these, but have not had it done yet.


I have not made much progress on this bus over the past 10 years, but I am hoping that will change.

I recently had the original curtain fabric remade. It is a perfect match.

Seeing the fabric finished is giving me some motivation to start working on this bus again.
