We're Home ....... For Now!!

We left Red Bay about noon on Friday, and drove to Baton Rouge where we found a Walmart, and spent the night. It was nice having 7 or 8 clear, color TV channels to watch. On Saturday, we started out about 9:00am, and drove to Lake Charles, La to visit Mark and Sue Didelot. While there, we did some planning for our January trip to Quartzsite, AZ. While there, we also had a very nice lunch. This time, I also got some photos of their home:

In the back, he has a nice garage area with a special 'tall' garage that houses his RV. He also has a 50 amp plug just outside the RV door, where his RV guest can back up in the driveway, and hookup for the night.

Sue is an artist, and some of her artwork is around the house, including on the back patio, and on the front of the house:

In the above picture, she designed the 'scrulpture' that is in place of a window on the front of their house.

Friday -- The Last Day!

We went to the factory to check out the final work this morning. It was sitting outside, and I got some good pictures:

At the SC Tiffin Rally, we met a couple named Shelly and Jason Crofford. They had a class "C" Tiffin motorhome. I found a similar one parked at the Tiffin Service Center. I took a closeup of the front License......

Our job is complete here. We are packing up the motorhome and heading back to Texas. Time to sell the Airstream motorhome, and get ready to pick up the Bus!!!!

Thursday -- Final Completion Items on the Bus

After we left last night, they finished touchup painting and buffing. We found the Bus in the 'awning' area this morning. Here is how it looked first time this morning...........

We think it is looking pretty good. Today, it got a roof ladder, exterior lights, awnings, etc., and then it was driven back to Red Bay for the final cleanup and inspection:

In the last picture, the guy is installing the"'keyless entry" system.

Wednesday -- The Bus is Painted!

When we left the paint shop yesterday, the plan was for the Bus to be clear coated, and then alllowed to dry overnight. They painted the clear coat after-hours, and we left because we were tired. When we got there this morning, it was clear coated and it looked good!! It was shiny and we liked our choice of paint jobs. Here's a couple of pictures:

After we helped them find "runs" and other imperfections in the paint, it was time to put it back into the paint booth:

And then, it was moved to the final buffing area:

Tomorrow, it gets an outside ladder on the back, awnings, exterior lights, etc. It's just about ready for Patsy and I to take Aubrey and Matthew on a long trip...... like to DisneyWorld!!!!!

Tuesday -- Bus Painting Continues……

Today was a slow day for us. We went to the paint shop at 6:00am, expecting to watch some painting activity. As it turned out, about 8:00am, we got to see some ‘masking’ activity. They painted a base coat on the motorhome yesterday, and then put a tape mask where they wanted the base coat to be the final color. They also used the making to paint the other colors. There was a masking kit for the front and the back, and four “rolls” of masking for each side. Here are a lot of pictures of them ‘masking’ the Bus:

When we were ready for paint, there was a waiting period, so Patsy and I drove over to the fabric shop and bought some motorhome fabric. When we got back, they started the painting:
It rained most of the afternoon, and when we got back to the campground, there was a 'double' rainbow in the sky. Here it is:
