ideas for the ashtray hole:

convert to USB charging station
convert to GPS holder

not shooting down the vase idea, just thinking of things people want in their cars today.

I have duel USB hidden under the dash and a suction cup cell mount on dash. I will leave a little notch for the mount's wireless charger cable.

We keep sticking flowers in the ashtray hole though. Smile I may try to find an ashtray cover and paint it so it looks like a real ashtray when closed.

Time to get the bus out soon. Still salt on the roads but that should get washed of in a week or two if we don't get any more winter weather.

So getting the rear bumper done. Only a couple years behind scheduled. Basically needed a skim coat of filler over the complete bumper. I hope to paint it this week so the bus can be moved from storage into the shop.
