Quote from: CNG on March 21, 2010, 01:27:59 PMwere will the bus be located
Quote from: Sir Pompously on March 21, 2010, 01:40:47 PMYour post is pointless by saying that you have a small property, but it would not be allowed to be kept there. Its not exactly like you were high on the list of people to ask as to if we could store the bus at theirs. All you needed to ask is 'Where will the bus be housed?' and in answer to that question, Sydney.
Quote from: Martin on March 18, 2010, 11:36:01 AM661 had a trial livery when it was refurbished by ACTION. These pictures can also be seen in the gallery.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on March 17, 2010, 08:47:14 PMThe plan is to restore the bus to its former ACTION glory. This is no small task and therefore we are putting the call out to our members who may be able to assist.
Quote from: Busn00b on April 12, 2010, 08:13:32 PMAnywhere from $2000 plus, if you buy a really crappy one or $4000 like ours are usually just fixer uppers with some work required but not much
Quote from: Busn00b on April 22, 2010, 05:06:49 PM.Also thanks to Zac for adding some accident damage to the bus after hitting a tree stump in it yesterday, so we now have to replace the metal sheet under the fuel cap and buff out some scratches...
Quote from: Busn00b on April 24, 2010, 12:32:53 PMYou still did pretty good zac for having never driven before, if there wasnt shit everywhere like todds first drive in the flat paddock it would have been better haha, lucky we had ed around for his humerous expressions everytime you nearly hit something or sent him through the windscreen
Quote from: Busn00b on April 23, 2010, 03:32:58 PMNo its behind too much grass didnt wanna get bitten by more biting ants, but thats the plan!
Quote from: CNG on April 29, 2010, 08:57:20 PMBut you let Zac have a drive, don't you trust me, not like I will crash it into a tree stump as previous members have done!
Quote from: Stacka on April 29, 2010, 09:49:18 PMTo put it simply, I am their friend, you on the other hand are not
Quote from: CNG on April 29, 2010, 05:40:50 PMwhen 661 comes to canberra can I have a drive in it please?
Quote from: CNG on April 30, 2010, 07:23:27 AMI was only fooling around any way, but their was no need to get nasty lemon and chris guru it is not like you are the only people who have friends in the world. That is just rude and you will both lose friends if you act like that. Boo hoo I can't drive your bus so what, Iam buying one any how.
Quote from: Chris_Guru on April 30, 2010, 09:54:36 AMI fail to see where i was rude to you CNG, however my gramatical skills are not up to Red Hill standards so you will have to forgive me on that count. It's a real shame that we can't be friends, I always feel bad when people of your social stature don't like me. I just can't figure out what i'm doing wrong. Could possibly be that i live in the real world and call it as i see it, something that is not tollerated in the Liberal heartlands of Snobville.
Quote from: Sir Pompously on May 10, 2010, 06:29:53 PMDesto looks very nice! She should scrub up well in Blue and Orange. Good to see the Matrolink vehicle coming together, and since when did our bus become part of MyZone?
Quote from: Bus 400 on May 10, 2010, 07:13:08 PMI am wondring if you are going to try to acquire & fit an old ACTION ticketing system or not?
Quote from: CNG on May 20, 2010, 07:23:14 AMwhat depot was 661 originally from, was it belco?
Quote from: Busn00b on May 22, 2010, 02:26:16 AMIt is DEFINATELY in a belco bus, perhaps 846? im very sure it was somewhere within the 830 - 850 range, a belco bus too
Quote from: Buzz Killington on June 02, 2010, 06:51:16 PMHope you're copying all those photos to a more reliable device!!
Quote from: p_stampy on June 03, 2010, 08:14:22 AMOh, I remember the day it went up to $3. People are such whingers...
Quote from: CNG on June 22, 2010, 04:25:56 PMwell that is quite a bit of money for just a single bus fare, so people had a right to be outraged and they weren't "such whingers"
Quote from: p_stampy on June 22, 2010, 07:43:34 PMHonestly, I dont think it is. If you're other options are driving & paying for parking, it is in fact much cheaper.If it's a distance thing (as in $4 to go 2km), well I suggest people walk instead if its not worth the soon to be $4. Of course if you're unable to walk for some substantial time, I assume you would be on a concession fare instead.Nothing in life is free.
Quote from: Bidgee on July 07, 2010, 01:17:58 AMHow is the bus going? Any June photos?
Quote from: CNG on July 17, 2010, 08:10:49 AMalso how do you donate money to the project?
Quote from: Sir Pompously on July 31, 2010, 05:09:17 PMA future interior possibility is replacing the fabric, which is dirty from much wear.
Quote from: Sir Pompously on July 31, 2010, 05:09:17 PMWe will need to look at replacing some window frames (Swapping them from condemned vehicles),
Quote from: Sir Pompously on July 31, 2010, 05:09:17 PMThe side desto box still needs to be fitted (We need a set of numbers, anyone?),
Quote from: Sir Pompously on July 31, 2010, 05:09:17 PMaswell as the removal and replacement of the cab door into position.
Quote from: Sir Pompously on July 31, 2010, 05:09:17 PMThe rear door button is non-operational, however the doors work fine, it is just the button that is the problem (We think it is not connected).
Quote from: Simes on August 01, 2010, 12:54:45 AM Were the same size and font rolls put into the Renaults?
Quote from: Simes on August 01, 2010, 12:54:45 AMThe seat backs I ripped out of "the shed" were at Terrey Hills - I was going to pop em in another bus coming over but got side tracked, they may still be there, they were still the fabric - I have a sneaking suspicion my "granny seat" is red tooHmmmmm do I see a "please Simon" conversation coming up hehehehe or are there other candidates at Oakville? Were the same size and font rolls put into the Renaults? I recall a side desto box (complete) being in one of those that ended up with Veolia (via Baxters and Transit First) Let me sort the shed out, then I'll remove it's one (or again, another candidate?) Easyish job, did "the shed" get a jump today and it's centre door fiddled with? I seem to recall it was disconnected also - since the emergency works - might involve taking out the drivers seat just so you can get under the dash...
Quote from: Sir Pompously on August 01, 2010, 05:03:24 PMI Think a Please Simon is going to be said in regards to the window frames. Cab door will also be from yours, I will let your more capable hands sort that one out.
Quote from: Sir Pompously on August 01, 2010, 05:03:24 PMThe future re-fabrication will probably be new fabric. There are quite a few suppliers of that material around.
Quote from: Sir Pompously on August 01, 2010, 05:03:24 PMWe did not jump 'The shed', I was looking for some cleaning supplies in there and something has leaked all over your floor.
Quote from: lukeo25 on August 02, 2010, 04:26:26 PMIf you obtain 675 i would love to help when i'm free that is :)
Quote from: Metrobus on October 02, 2010, 04:31:34 PMPart of my contribution will be paying for the seats to be recovered where needed (unless the fabric is ridiculously cheap in which case I will pay for both to be re done completely). The rest of my contribution will be through helping out.
Quote from: Metrobus on October 03, 2010, 09:48:07 PMI will be paying for both buses to be done
Quote from: Sir Pompously on October 21, 2010, 03:22:36 AMI also only remember the mercs with a set of numbers each side on the rear, unless there was another elsewhere.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on October 21, 2010, 06:07:40 PMOn the original livery there was one on the front of the bus on the blue band, but in the refurb livery it was just the two at the rear.
Quote from: Sir Pompously on September 01, 2012, 11:21:00 PMThanks Simes, you are legendary!!! We will have to update 646 to Scrapped.
Quote from: Busnerd on September 03, 2012, 11:16:41 PM and bag rack mesh!
