Progress.....

I got the roof mudded up and sanded. Holy whore that was, my air compressor took a shit about an hour into yesterdays session so I sanded the whole roof by hand. I am fucking hurting this morning but I made my goal of priming the roof and getting the camper top out of storage and sitting on the bus. Only took 12 hours but I did it.

I also welded in the driver side front seat slider mounts that were missing so now it has a set of front seats in it too.

I am hoping to buy another air compressor today so I can keep on trucking on this.

I think besides getting the top bolted down I will start working on making this a runner for the first time in 20 years.

Scott, where'd you get the old wooden skis from? They are cool.

Roof looks nice too.

I just bought a compresspr from Home depot on line, it cost around eight-fifty delivered. It' 80 gal, three lung compressor, and 4.5 hp 220 volt. Keeps up with air tools pretty good.
Let me draw you a fucking picture!

The old skis were my grand fathers and my my mom's when she was 8. So that dates them back to 1957ish. I used to have them on my '51 ragtop bug 12 years ago. Been sitting in the 23 window for the last 7 years. Had to clean out the 23 to switch the camper top off of it onto the hack bus yesterday, by myself. That was a bitch, it has to weigh about 300 pounds. ](*,) ](*,)

Thanks for the compressor info. I guess I will be dumping some coin today. Lucky me.

When the next owner of the bus wants to \:D/

I am running out of steam on this bus and building my garage addition to my house is nearly to the "spend an ass load of money" so this one will be going up for sale soon to help fund it.

No air compressor purchased yesterday either, got stuck doing things around the house for the wife since I have neglected it for a while using all my free time on the bus.

Next weekend.
