The boy has a goal in sight! =D>

Thanks for the support! I'm really happy with how this bus is coming along so far. Since my last update I had finished all the plug welds on the cargo floor and made up some closing panels for the front wheel wells and stitched those in before driving the oval home. \:D/ \:D/

I really want to be able to take this camping soon so I think I'm going to find some long weekends to head back and keep chipping away at the work. [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o<

The only stuff I still have to weld in is a small section of the front floor and the battery tray, and maybe some door skin, but we'll see. :-k :-k After that its just some dent removal, bodywork, camping. Easy, right? [-( [-(

I love this bus though. Campers rule. =D> =D> =D>

Dropped my sketchy-ass steering box that Ross and Keith at Painter's said was going to kill someone and got it all boxed up and ready to ship to Wolfgang this weekend! =P~

And did a little floor patch. Ruined a whole KF outer floor piece for this little bit. [-( [-( FUN! \:D/ \:D/

Hahaha you got me! I sat on it for a bit, but didn't have the balls to try and start it without you there. But it's fun to pretend, and I'm definitely hooked now. :-# :-#

It actually wasn't all that bad, I think I got too hot at one point and unzipped my sleeping bag some... just happy the bed didn't collapse in the middle of the night. I think she's okay, if anything she's in trouble for making us leave, even though she couldn't really help getting sick. I think it was a 24 hour stomach flu kinda thing.... sucks Frown Frown Frown [-( [-(
