Apart from being looking, you'd never know.

Invention is a combination of brains and materials.
The more brains you use, the less materials you need.

When you do good work, sometimes people get so mesmerized...... then it becomes the whole target fixation kinda thing.

At least it didn't crunch your roof.

This is a different one, haven't worked on this one yet. He has a fleet of about 20. Now if the rest of them can stay in one piece...

Well . . . Those BIG yellow school buses are kinda hard to see, when you're . . . Texting.

Well, that makes sense. The car's driver was probably confused just like me as your reputation precedes you. So they had to get really, REALLY close trying to see where you had fixed it because it looked like it had never been wrecked in the first place.

Keep the pics and methods coming. Someday, someone might decide it's more practical to make a school bus from scratch than it is to make a Cobra or Bugatti....

That would be a big buck.

Probably....I mean how else do you hit a stopped school bus?
It's getting bad out there.

Driver was a high school kid, he's had the truck for about 4 months, I'm told. Whatever distracted him, it's served up a hard lesson.

Last few seconds of this video show how far the bus bumper moved, he smacked it pretty good!
