No way man, those ears are just too hideous! :shock:

BTW, I didn't actually intentionally remove them. Conveniently I didn't open my garage door all the way and while pulling out with some speed, ripped the one out. I had to take the other one off then....

Finally, I've fixed the images to my thread. Damn, it was good seeing these pics again. Just watch those 2 videos on the 1st and 2nd page. :lol:

And now I can add the trip to the 2016 KKK in Parys last year.

These pics bring back so many memories. I absolutely just love this bus. :hangloose:
