Lots of progress today!! =D> =D> =D>

Spent all day Monday cutting shit out and grinding and cleaning up the good metal to prep for the new stuff. Its a shame the top had to leak so bad and have moisture pile up on the drivers side because the inner rockers and stuff really weren't all that bad #-o #-o but its good to do it all while we're in there :-({|= ](*,)

I think the bus is going to lose over 20 lbs worth of dirt that has been packed into the frame over the years. [-( [-( \:D/

Then I stayed up late last night mocking up all the top hats and outriggers and shit so I could weld it in all day today. Did some more adjusting and straightening for a while this morning to get it right where I like it and spent the afternoon drilling holes, clecoing everything together and burning it all together. Who knew building cars was fun! Well...most of it :-$ :-$ :-$ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

This bus has had a pretty exciting weekend before all this too... From snow piled to the height of the roof to playing around in Rabbit Valley with the Sand Scorcher to being totally ripped apart! =P~ Wink

Can't wait to finish my bus and drive the crap out of it!!!

Wrapped up welding all the top hats and stuff yesterday, put the cargo door rocker in... fits nice!! Smile

Came home from dinner Roosters, bugged John till he kicked me out of the house and got to work!! Cut, fit, adjusted, stitched, and ground down the entire long rocker last night till about 3am! #-o #-o #-o \:D/ \:D/ It seems like a simple job to me but damn does welding that whole thing in take long as fuck!! ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) But that was the goal so however long it takes is how long its gonna take! =D> =D>

Sweet Pea kept me company the whole time too and watched me from the driver's seat. Its easy to get into a good grove and crank shit out when you've got good beer and can blast good music. I figured I'm normally out at the bars till 2am on Thursdays so 3am isn't that much worse [-( [-(

Image

That thing is solid too, welded the crap out of it. Fitting the floors right now, and right away they look pretty tight. =D> Just a little massaging and I think they'll be ready to go!!

Yeah Will killed it. He's pretty much has had tunnel vision on his bus for the last week. Not many people can find the time, energy, and focus to get that much done in 7 days.
