You did it, and have a very unique coach that is truly yours. Congratulations. I'll wave and play you a tune on the musical horn when you pass me some day on a long hill!

Thank you. Yea most people, including wifey thought I was nuts!!
But I knew I could do it.

As for the Tag, it's not steerable, and it has a button "tag lift", when I hit the button, it sounds like I loose air pressure to it's bags, but the tag doesn't actually lift up. So I'm not sure if that's just how it works, or if it isn't working correctly.

The bus has been running amazing, and we have been using it almost every weekend.

Hey David, from what I learned just yesterday... the tags on on the 1982 PT40 simply deflate the airbags when the button is pressed so I would imagine that it works the same on yours... now, I could be wrong!

Going with a full high gloss black paint job, with Lime green and white "graphics".
I should have stuck with my initial desires the first time. The is just the epoxy primer
