Cleaning up

So I posted a thing on Craigslist about free bus seats, to see if I could get rid of them (the fact that they only have legs on one side make them hard to sell). One dude just came by to get a couple for his dorm room, and a couple people are popping by later to grab some more. Now is your chance, if you want one. Tell your friends, or anyone who’ll listen. Once this bus is empty, we can get working again.

1 – Beginning

A walkthrough of the bus before we touched it, then we start to take out the seats.

You can see the progress going from left to right. In the end, we managed to get all but five seats out. There are some other pictures up on Flickr, and we took some video of the whole process which will be up eventually.

It starts tomorrow

On Saturday I’m going to start taking the seats out of the bus. I have enough tools that a bunch of people could work on a couple seats at once. You’re welcome to come by and help. You’re also welcome to come by and not help, if that sounds more appealing. But we’ll probably guilt you into holding something, or turning the handcrank radio.

Also, if you want a seat, come on by, and pick your own. I’m selling them for $10-$20 each, depending on the shape they’re in. This is going to be the primary source of funding for the bus for the first part of the summer. I’m working on whoring my body out to drug tests at UConn to pay for the second.

Since all the work tomorrow will be either inside or under the bus, we can work comfortably rain or shine.
