“No harm or no foul” or the “the car doesn’t know it isn’t” is the line they always use.😄

Who pays that much scratch for an unfinished clone with shitty droopy curtains, no headliner and wrinkly ugly seats covers? Even if you don't know squat about buses, it's obvious that it is a low quality job.

They didn't even bother to weld in a skylight clip. They just cut holes in the sheet metal and tarred them in.
If you can get that much for such shit work why would anyone bother to spend more to do it right, unless you have self respect.

I could be wrong, but I believe the guy in the blue shirt with the bidder number around his neck is the one that bought it
