    John,

    Are you going to drive with those railings like that or are they removable or do they fold down onto the wood?

    They don’t fold or come off….ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  Solid welded all around…ย  I made it as tall as I could and still make it in the dirty shop! and under my deck!

    I want to put 4 dudes in lawn chair up there.. with 4 beers… and see if we can make it to Roosters without getting pulled over… ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

    JJ, you shouldย install a beetle hood up there like that Shasta bus a few years back. ๐Ÿ’ก

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

    Ha, The trip to Roosters sounds Awesome! I think the aluminum on the sides for stickers and sponsors could look really cool also.

    I tuned my bus up, changed my pulley to that $80 Porsche pulley, it’s slightly smaller, supposed to give a little more fan speed…. ๐Ÿ˜ณย  ๐Ÿ˜ณย  ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    We had our usual anniversary Red Lobster.. and headed to the hippie hot springs….ย  Orvis, Just past Ridgeway…ย  Had two good soaks… Slept in our bus.. and damn was it cold out.. like 6 degree’s….ย  But we snuggled up and it was fine…. I’m glad we left the dogs at home… There was ice on the inside of the bus this morning…ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ย Anywho…. On the way home… I shredded that Porsche pulley….. stripped the rear pulley where it index’s into the hub… kinda like china made one’s … ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ย  Luckily I had a stock replacement with me… and belt.. so less than 10 minutes… we were back on the road….ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ย No more Porsche pulley try outs for me….ย  I will stick with what I know works… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I did not get my wood installed…. I’m gonna do that tomorrow.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

    separated with paint sticks, used leverage bar to get some 3/4 steel in on the left side, so I can still get a tie down down there…. I guess I will drill large holes on the right side to sew my tarp up for storage., ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ย OH BTW…. I measured this stuff.. it’s 1″ thick… then 1/4′ routed out where those larger tubes are sticking up. so it’s pretty flush with the 3/4″ tube…ย  I plan on getting it all screwed down… and get up here with some 36 grit on a 8″ da and smooth this shit out like glass!!!!!ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

     

    and for all you out there thinking… “damn, john gets to work on his bus on christmas”…ย  Corporate loves this bus as much or more than I do!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sky deck is mostly done…ย  I have it screwed to the 3 large tubes… I think I should probably, split the distance and add 2 more rows of screws/.. maybe??ย  I also redid my front ladder and moved it much closer to the bus and now it matches the angles on the nose and windshields much mo better!ย  That was a quick fun project, ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ย The side rails make it seem sooooo much more stable and easy to move around and hold on and shit..ย  You can see Zack is sitting on the rail… they are strong.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ย I can fit 12′ sheets of plywood up there too.. sitting flat… and nice.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love my bus.. It is almost dialed for an Arizona road trip in January!!!
