Okay, the interior work is hard. I pretty much have the doors and front panels done. The passenger I may redo because of the birch. Originally I thought the different colored birch would look cool and add some contrast but now I don't like it. Everything else is very white and that door just looks funky. :-k :-k :-k

Now I have stated on the roof. Basically put in some bows I had left over and started trying to fit in the panels. I had to make my own templates and it has worked fine until the rear of the bus.... Now I am stuck and have been searching the inter webs trying to figure out next steps. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) Do I have to have the headache type rack or is there an alternative? Any comments would be appreciated.

Enjoy the holiday!

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day! Killed beers, smoked ribs and made a little progress update on June's interior... After help from Franz on what the rear of the bus should look like, I was able to complete that rear panel. Need to stain and poly it but I can live with it. So happy to get that piece cut and mounted! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Progress... Roof done. Back panels by rear... Flipping impossible to think something can be that curved and be a straight line. Ms. Lamer put the sewing machine to work and made the bottom cushion for the bed. We bought the material at a fabric store that was going out of business so it was stupid cheap. Just a good weekend for working on the bus. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
