Tires & More!!!

The other day I decided it was time to pull up the bus stair treads. The metal under the top tread is ok but the last two steps need some work. Both have rusted strait through to the ground.

We took the bus up to the metal shop today and he made 3 new stair treads. (Will post pics soon)

After that we went a had tires put on the bus. A local shop stocked the tires that fit the bus. They are slightly used and have a ton of tread left on them. At only $145 mounted I could not pass it up. I did get brand new tires for the front. (Pics soon.) I am finding that the used tires produce more vibration then the old tires I had on. I called the shop and they want me top bring the bus back in to see if they can fix the problem.

Next we took the bus the get weighed. Something I have been wanting to do for a while. We came in at 22,080 pounds.

Then we went by the local international dealership. I picked up some new wipers, a new head light switch and my new pride and joy...an air ride seat!!! (Pics soon) Wow what a difference!

After that we drove to a local restaurant and relaxed. Here are a couple pics of the bus in the parking lot.
