Hey Franz, haven’t posted in forever and I guess my old account got wiped in the site-crash so I had to make a new one. Just wanted to say this is one of the raddest buses to be built in quite some time! I hope Ill get to check it out on the road some day, somewhere down the line.FranzKeymasterFebruary 9, 2018 at 1:31 pmPost count: 2869

That sounds bad ass! Load up some bikes, open the big ass hatch with a camp fire going and the neon lights glowing… Gucci?

Bus has all it’s lids and doors on it!!!!!! damn we are getting close now! 😀FranzKeymasterFebruary 12, 2018 at 9:33 amPost count: 2869
Yep. Fit decent too. The driver’s door needs a little love, Its has a huge gap at the back. The hinges were worn and cracked…I fixed all of that while it was in metal. Which was the original cause of the issue….but someone had bent the hinges to compensate for the problems…Now the bent hinge is the problem pulling it forward. I just have to pop it off and bend it back.
I should have fit all the parts to the bus in metal or primer….but I didn’t.
Originally I had planned to two tone the backside of the door turkis. But decided against it for a couple reasons. 1- I was afraid the turkis would be visible through the door gaps. 2- The window frames are all going to be white. 3- The white will glow better under the LED lights. Also decided not to install headliner on the cargo doors because the canvas is not very pliable. It would wrinkle and make pop-out seal install near impossible. The doors definitely provide some interior contrast.
I also spent a minute yesterday tearing down a old RV stove/oven that I pan to make a cabinet to fit. Cookin cookies but I’m not your damn granny.BBWBParticipantFebruary 12, 2018 at 10:50 amPost count: 720
Looks all business Franz. Do you think the socket trick between the hinges would pull the door back?
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.John JonesKeymasterFebruary 17, 2018 at 7:15 pmPost count: 5680
I think the socket trick will help for sure.. I took he hinge off today and hit it around a little bit… 😎 He’s beeing getting all his OG door handles and mech’s together for this rig!!!! window frames coming up too!!!!!!!!John JonesKeymasterFebruary 18, 2018 at 6:28 pmPost count: 5680
