I am not sure if maybe the transit company waxed the mats but wow. I need to try floor wax remover on other issues to see how it works out.
Wax remover?hmm,i will try that,thanks greg.
I had an fc i bought from a heavy smoker,both of them were smokers.
The window screens and everything else were coffee brown,the window frames etc.
The headliner was horrible.


I had my cleanup girl scrub the headliner twice.
It still looked terrible.
I got a gal of AC coil cleaner and was wiping down the window frames and it took all that smoke stain right off,i took the screens out and washed them,they looked like new.
I made the mistake of wiping the headliner with the coil cleaner,it took all of that stuff right off.
I used rolls of paper towels,and i wiped everything in that coach with AC coil cleaner,it came out so nice you would not have believed it.
I saw the coach years later and the headliner still looked good,no bad effects of the cleaning.

Castrol Super Clean for me. The good cleaners probably share a lot of the same chemicals.

Jeff - have you considered upgrading to a modern plastic fan? I think I want to do that.

I have a 5 gal jug of "purple stuff" that my buddy got from his supplier... I am going to spray some of that all over to degrease things.. then hit it with the pressure washer...

Yes, I have a plastic fan, just have to pick it up from my buddy... I am excited to see if it changes the feel of the fan kicking on...

So I got the radiator back today... looks great and should last me my lifetime I would hope... especially if I put coolant in it instead of just water like it had...

Here is what the water looked like coming out of the radiator.. no it’s not orange coolant, it’s just rusty water.... makes me sick thinking that that’s what’s been in there, but I am fixing it now. Have filled and flushed the engine a bunch until the water started running clear...

Not sure how heavy it exactly is, but it is definitely heavy... I used my floor jack to lower it down out of the bus, and I am using a dolly to move it around.

How did others cut out the insulation for the top of the engine compartment? Make a template out of cardboard? I was just thinking about trying to put cut off bolts in the bolt holes and cut off screws in the screw holes to mark the location as I am trying to put the insulation up. I am using 3m contact cement so I will only get one chance to put the insulation up and then it will be stuck.

So I received my shipment of hoses that I ordered from siliconehose.com. The hoses look great, but they messed up and sent me the wrong length hose.

I ordered 6- 3" diameter hoses cut to 6". They sent 6- 36" long pieces, a pretty big difference, especially in price. They only charged me for the 6" pieces.
Of course I called to let them know of their mistake and this is where it has gotten difficult. They said I could keep them, and of course they would have to charge me... fair enough, but I really want the 6" factory cut pieces. So I told them that I wanted what I ordered. They said they would have to call me back after they figured it out. They did not call back, I had to call them back. Then they told me they would have to refund the amount for the 6" hoses so they could re-order the 6" hoses in their system. We are going on now almost another week past since calling them and I have not seen any charges or refunds on my credit card for the hose.... At this point I am not sure what I am going to do. They did not seem to accommodating for their almost $500 mistake that I nicely called them and let them know about. I many end up just cutting one of them up to use, so I can make it to pine mountain.
