The Cool Bus has officially been completed!!! WAAAAHHHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
And it only took 8 months!
8 months of repairs, maintenance, design, getting quotes, custom fabrication, paint jobs...and a lot of patience. A lot of patience.
The exterior graphics are finally complete and I have to say I'm very happy with the way it all came out. I did feel like I would never get it back as the completion kept getting delayed and moved back, but as much as I wanted to pressure them to complete it, I knew that I should not rush them and allow them to do everything correctly.
In addition to the exterior paint and graphics, I also was able to get the inside handrails installed across the roof. It is actually only 1 really long handrail that is on the passenger side of the bus. We installed it on this side because it allows for the handrail to go from the front to the back of the bus along with the seating. The drivers side has the cooler/trash can compartment, so that might not have made as much sense.
This Friday night we will actually be filming a promotional video for The Cool Bus. This will be a 45 sec promotional video to be used on the website and all of my social media channels. I am still working on confirming the route and bars we will visit, but it should be a fun night no matter where we go. Stay tuned for the video in the coming weeks....coming soon to a YouTube channel near you!
