HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS OF THE BUS AND YOU CAN SEE IT IS TAKING ON ITS SHAPE! SOME PARTS ARE MISSING AND STILL NEEDS ALOT OF SANDING AND FINAL DETAILS ( WINDOWS, RAILS, WINDOW RAILS AND SHAPING ETC.) I WILL TAKE MORE PICS AFTER I GET IT DETAILED AND SANDED, BEFORE STAIN AND FINISH. BEFORE I GLUE IT ALL TOGETHER!! WON'T BE TO MUCH LONGER. 10 DAYS TO 2 WKS AT MOST!!

One more sanding, clean, stain and finish.
I made some signs for the passenger side, rear and front that are removable and I just put some temporary signs so you could see what I did. I will send new sigs with bus and you can just pop them in or out. Need you to send a picture of what tone the stain should be. So many different colors as I look on the internet, just e-mail a pic and I will so the best I can to match it.

I have some min wax stain that are "deep ocean" and "royal mahogany" essentially blue and red. I mised 1/2 and 1/2 and I attached the result. You can tell me more red or more bulu and I will make another sample. My personal choice is to bring out the wood grains with a more natural look, but then it sort of spoils the wimsy of the three decker bus! I want you to be happy with it, but once the stain color is on there, there is no going back! Let me know. I will add mirrors and back rail.

If I make stair darker the grain of wood will noT Show. If you can go to a Home Depot or Lowes and pick a color that would be alot easier for everyone. I like the idea of the stains you sent that you said are "professional looking" as they will show the wood off better. I could stain with colors I have sent and start light and darken up with more coats of stain, that might work. We will get it soon! thanks Mellisa!
