    I've been using black for the bus parts to try and tone down the brightness as they tend to fade quite a bit after a few years. On this one I also added some flattening agent so it wasn't so loud like the roof repair.


    Today the hood was reinstalled, all the bits bolted back together, and the rear skirt replaced..

















    All together and ready for pick up tomorrow..

    Nice work! Did you use a jig saw with a guide bolted to the center to cut the round hole? it looks like a perfect hole is why I'm asking.

    I started with finding hole center, punching, then a set of dividers to mark the outside perimeter. A thru hole was done with a hole saw, then my vise mount jigsaw with optional cruise control was employed for freehand cutting. I've found if you take your time you can be fairly accurate in your cuts. Even with such a sketchy arrangement.

    In wood or aluminum I really like a router with a circle jig for making near perfect holes. I may use your vice jig saw idea for some stuff though.
