    LIFE!!!!!!! UUUUUGH!!!!

    All tsunami‘s just look like ripples on the pond after you’ve made it through them.

    Good to know your backing away from the edge on this one.

    This may be the new BBOE when it done!!!

     

    We will build it if it comes.

    I am not sure about the new BBOE, there is only one and I don’t want to take away from how awesome it is. I have takeen many of my ideas from that bus and have several reference pictures to use. BBOE is the first Split I drove when we were in the Swell, I have only driven two. I have jokingly made a comment I think to Cole that this will be BBIG Best Bus In the Galaxy 😆

    I will be putting some more work in on it this weekend, hopefully have the floors and door repairs welded in. Trying to figure out the Chinese diesel heater placement and fuel tank now. Might have to make a custom small 2 gallon tank to fit somewhere.

    Pat that is a great quote “All tsunami‘s just look like ripples on the pond after you’ve made it through them”. Looking at the current situation, this has taught me that I have too much and need to simplify. At least I am doing it now and not at retirement.

    I need some advice, I am trying to figure out where to put the filler for the diesel tank to the diesel heater.

    I am thinking of the tank sitting right above the wheel well and having a custom tank made. IMG_20210118_105445160

    So far this location makes the most sense and it only needs to be about 2 gallons.

    My question is what will look the best on the outside. I am thinking of something in this location. IMG_20210118_105035896

    I am leaning either welding in another gas flap but the area is very tight or using an early bay neck and modifying it so it does not stick out so far on the body with a cap on the outside. I am open to other ideas also.

    I don’t like the idea of cutting up your exterior.

    Could you work a flexible hose through the side gap next to the stock filler? Small mount plate tacked in for support at the upper end.F61DAD03-CB26-4ECE-A25C-E400515276D5

    I was thinking the same thing as Pat.

    I just got my diesel heater on Saturday. Will be installing in next few days.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    I was thinking the exact same spot but didn’t think it was large enough. I will take a look again. My concern would be getting a pump nozzle in there to fill it.

    My 2 cents,  get a def fill neck and cap from a diesel truck.  Look in a new Ram diesel fuel door . I  think it should  fit

    Leave the filler hose  little long so you can pull it out to fill-up?

    I think I found a filler that might work without cutting the body. I will update with some pictures.

    I finished welding in the passenger floor.

    And both cargo doors

    I then decided to do the outer skin while I was in it all. Turned out great.

    Ok a long overdue update.

    Figured out the Diesel filler neck and need to trim down the mounting edge. Next is finding someone to weld a custom aluminum tank made that fits in the battery tray and the battery will sit on top of it.

    IMG_20210129_183242097IMG_20210129_183212649

    Figured out the mounting location for the turning brake and will reinforce the shelf side. I will trim the arms down so they sit closer to the steering column and bend them outward slightly.

    IMG_20210131_104003092

    Also figured bout how the diesel heater will mount under the rear bench with the turret and mount I welded in.

    IMG_20210213_195251877

    IMG_20210213_112850168

    Lastly it’s back on its side and making sure everything is cut and welded for the additions. I also am not doing the sleeper intake snorkel anymore and will be doing the Ottinger style intake again.

    Nice.

    Have you considered flexible brake hoses for the turning brake? So that you can drop it out of the way when the parcel tray needs to be removed for electrical maintenance.

    Yes but not for that reason. I was thinking it would be easier to run the lines from underneath. Guess I will run them now. Not much room to tie it all into the master cylinder and avoid all the moving parts.
