I did send you a PM through bus nuts before I came to see if I could stop by and see you, but you never responded Ned  :)   

Yes Gene is helping me out.  I actually broke a part yesterday and he has a replacement.

Ned I will be back in north Carolina for work in about a month.  I will be the last stop at the end of a month long tour so I so I don't know how much free time I will have.  I'll check my dates and see if we can meet up.

Yes,  don't worry just used for game hunting! (dogs keep undesirables away)

Clifford that's a bum wrap that those  2 (of 4) dogs took! Gary "baited" them by leaving 2 #'s of cooked bacon out on a low table in a bus w/door open!
Those 2 dogs have always checked out any bus w/door open as they were brought home on a bus when they joined our family.

Luvrbus I need a window and frame for the 3751.  The previous owner had a piece of plywood over a window, I just assumed it was covering broken glass.  Well I took it off to go to the glass shop today and disassembled it.  Well he used a saw to cut out both sides of the frame.  I don't get why he did it, but none the less it's ruined.

Let me know a price if you have one from the one you are parting out.

Not adding anything to the conversation, but it's B-E-A-UTIFUL! Wow, there is just something about the older buses! Could stare at the picture for a long time.
