You are going to wonder how you ever lived without that parcel tray. I wasn't able to get my E-Brake handle off, so I had to cut a slit in the tray to slip over the brake rod which was a PITA.

Re: The Big Spud "Mashed potaters"

Resurrected this, as I forgot to show the final results. New garage now faces the street, is insulated, has 8' doors (it was always a close call with the bus before), another single garage door going out back to a concrete pad.

Colin visit

Re: Buses n Boats event FINAL UPDATE!!! May 15-17 Morrow, Ohio
