I don't believe there was a specific thread but there were some posts in the middle of another thread.

This thread could be considered the real thread about it.

I'm sorry to hear about that. We talked and he seemed real decent. Anymore pics of the BD other than the ones on this thread?

I thought I would post some progress.. Bus is coming along and getting closer and closer to hitting the streets again.. Rolling it to Vegas in Oct.

No respraying, just a little buffing.. I had to really press hard on that rear corner.. Wink

Took all day to get those doors to fit and work... Much more work than it looks.. they were tweaked!
