    Re: An experiment with an old bug

    Looks great and I bet it was fun to work on. Bugs in good shape are becoming harder to find. This one looks like a “keeper”.

    Awesome results!

    That was an interesting way to polishing a platina finish. It looks great.

    Looks like a fun project with great results!
    Had a 69 bus years ago with a paint job only Earl Scheib could be proud of. Polished it once a year, just for fun.
