He just cross wired it, like it was done previously, and it "fixed" the issue.

Well we were busy yesterday getting the ole girl dressed up for her first antique car show today.
We finally painted the peeling goat rails and touched up a few spots. What a big difference that made! Should have done that sooner. I also took all of the awning hooks off and shined them all up and touched up all of the rusty black areas under the bus, like the generator exhaust, generator tray and holding tanks pipe. From a little distance, she looks like a new bus! I dare say she is a 10/10. Still need to get my wheels polished better. Need someone with some machinery to knock off the scale so they can be shined up.

I've decided I am going to tape off the entrance between the booth and the center cabinet, so they can step up and look in but not walk around. I'll be sure to mention the All Mighty WOG and infamous BuyByeBluebird, should it inspire any new potential owners. We will definitely be the biggest vehicle there...lol

About those pics....well I didn't want to bore BadAndy with more pics of my bus. Actually I will take some pics when we set up at the car show. Spent the morning shining those tires and rubber parts. I could easily spend a solid week cleaning, touching up and shining her, but I only had a day so she is as good as one day can get her.

And Randy, I am more than happy to be a little ambassador for your sites.

Hey I like the old engines, and your old bus. I'll take whatever I can get. I just posed a freaking flow chart on my build thread so I can't be too picky!
