More lighting and wiring. Pulse width dimmer on the input to the switches. Located under the passenger seat pedestal.

This build just keeps getting more and more interesting. Really looking forward to when it hits the streets of GJ. =D>

What, and that is a problem ? I see this as an incredibly fun adventure machine that will have people lining up to check it out ! \:D/

That's killer that Wren came and hooked you up with some sanding.
I was thinking, just before I saw that, how fun that would be to do.
Wish i lived there...
Would for sure love to come and block out some doors, just in exchange for being able to pick up a few tips..

I lived in CO from birth until like 25 or so,
And there ain't no freezing-ass-balls-cold like Gunnison.
That place has this arctic nut-zorching cold that NO other place has.

Those LEDs are going to make you the king of any kampout.
Your kids will be kooler than kool!

Hell yeah. Its rad to get some help from friends. Restoring a bus is a ridiculous amount of tedious work. Its hard to do alone. I understand why people pay us to do this. Thanks for the help everyone. =D>

I kept it pretty chill this weekend. Buried my head under the dash and wired everything. Got rid of the dumb 66-67 headlight dimmer relay & t/s switch, and emergency flasher system. Retrosound radio installed with a face plate extension cable. You can see the head unit next to the heat tube. The unit would not fit behind the dash due to a brace. ](*,) Its kind of nice because it keeps all of the wires and junk down low behind the kick panels. Not so fun to assemble and install.
