Phil Saves the Day!

Published on 28 January 2024 at 20:25

Once again, Tie-Dye Phil (Phil Schramm) stepped up and saved the ABC with his excellent body work. We are on a time-line to get the raffle bus back together, and Phil was able to fit us into his busy schedule and donate his time. He also gave lessons to John and Russell on how to remove rust spots and weld in good metal. This last weekend, we had discovered some rust that needed to be removed before we can progress to painting the bus. Mark Peck was once again generous with his time, truck and trailer today. He picked up the raffle bus bright and early this morning and drove us out to Phil’s place (over 2 hours from Mark’s home in Cave Creek). Mike Baleda was there to supervise the work, so it got done right. We removed rust by the back side light, and several holes along the window lines. We will hopefully be able to finish up the repairs tomorrow. Afterwards, Mark will transport the bus back to Russell’s garage. It will be ready for the bus build, 9 am-ish next Saturday 2/3/24. Be there or be square.
