50 years of crap when fixing some of the camper windows! Got all but 1 fixed… need to source a shorter regulator than what I got. 4” ish arm if anyone has one. The one is stripped and doesn’t tighten all the way when you try to close it. New Fresh air box flap seal! Hopefully keep me a bit warmer on Shasta. All the little things… almost therevolksaddictParticipantJanuary 11, 2021 at 7:38 pmPost count: 660
I have tried to source those small window winders without much luck Cole, let me know if you find something.ColeBModeratorJanuary 11, 2021 at 9:00 pmPost count: 1996
I emailed a few vintage trailer supply stores… hopefully something comes up. For now it’s wired shut…BBWBParticipantJanuary 12, 2021 at 7:19 amPost count: 908
There’s an actual web site called vintage trailer supply that carries the regulators.
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.volksaddictParticipantJanuary 12, 2021 at 7:42 amPost count: 660
Vintage trailer supply is a no-go, even talked to them in person.PeteParticipantJanuary 12, 2021 at 7:50 amPost count: 947

That’s a great idea Pete! I’ll measure the screw holes today and make sure they will line upJohn JonesKeymasterJanuary 12, 2021 at 9:21 amPost count: 7352

That’s what we’ve done in the past.
Make sure you get any new plastic sliders, clips, etc. that you can. Those usually crumble when pulled apart. Take one window apart first so u know what you need.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterJanuary 13, 2021 at 7:34 amPost count: 7352
the less you mess with them windows the better… 😎ColeBModeratorJanuary 13, 2021 at 8:12 amPost count: 1996
Haha! Always nice n cuddly! Helps keep you warm when it’s 8 degrees out!
ya… I held off messing with them… but the broken ones rattle pretty bad even with them wired shut… trying to do all the little things I’ve been putting off! No time like now.
I finally got my front door handles working nice! Soaked the mechs and ice picks in gas over night. Got them all working properly. Found a spring for one of the ice picks that was missing… Franz helped me figure out I had the wrong ice pick on the driver door making the handle stick open and almost bow the whole door out all weird. Figured out it was the wrong size of arm that pushes on the mech. I ground it down and works like a charm! Getting stuff put back together. Wood panels soon too! Hopefully Seth will come down today… said he would different arm sizes. I have recessed base doors on this bus. So I think the handle bases are closer to the door mech. All the little details!ColeBModeratorJanuary 17, 2021 at 11:17 pmPost count: 1996
Left early Saturday morning for a short little shakedown run! Ended up being out there in the west desert longer than anticipated so I decided to stay the night at baker! Always so fun out there. No one out on Saturday. Bus ran great! Some small tweaks and then SST! Fun technical sectionwild horses I’ve seen out in this canyon before muddy Django.Cold this morning! Was fine last night… but the clouds moved out and the cold moved in! Haha thanks wayner for showing me about this fancy wideband thingy! Gonna play with this someColeBModeratorJanuary 22, 2021 at 6:13 pmPost count: 1996
BeforeAfterFinally done! Took a lot longer than anticipated! Woodwork is super hard! Kicked my ass! First time really doing anything with wood. Not perfect, I want to change a couple things. But for now I’ll roll with it. I’m sick of working on it haha!
thanks to pat for all the answers to my questions and for some of the panels! Helped a tonPeteParticipantJanuary 22, 2021 at 6:38 pmPost count: 947
That’s a great improvement! The paneling makes it look like it would be a lot warmer to camp in….nice work.mtnbusParticipantJanuary 23, 2021 at 6:26 amPost count: 1293
Nice Cole !
Ive tried and Ive tried to do the roof panels and they’ve never came out like yours. Looks greatPat KKeymasterJanuary 23, 2021 at 9:04 amPost count: 1653
Nice dude!!!! I like the wood window trim!
See ya tomorrow???
We will build it if it comes.ColeBModeratorJanuary 23, 2021 at 9:17 amPost count: 1996
Bubba! They’re a fucking pain in the ass! I need to re do the front one. But for now I’m content. Haha should hopefully help keep some warmth in. I tried the metal stuff pat and couldn’t wrap my head around it. First try with the wood frame turned out ok. I’ll retry that sometime too. But the plywood can be reused on that panel. Just need to mess with the frame
yup. Planning on leaving SLC early in the am tomorrow
