What an awesome bus Tom! This thing is going to be an awesome camper! Can’t wait to follow your adventures with it!John JonesKeymasterOctober 27, 2017 at 10:56 amPost count: 7082
I could not believe that fridge fired up and cooled off….. I was like… WOW!!! 😉 Peet found a local guy who does this stuff…. So hopefully she will be a cold ringer soon!!!! Bummer on the engine case.. Seems that is the case about 51% of the time lately…. But nothing another stack of hundreds can’t fix.. 😉 😉 😉 Peet ran and got some sheets of Baltic Burch to make new panels out of this morning… Franz has been pulling windows apart and got some paint matched up yesterday for some tiny blends…John JonesKeymasterOctober 28, 2017 at 9:31 amPost count: 7082
Peet started cutting panels for ya on friday Tom! I think we will coat your wood with this Shiney Clear Corporate is using.. 😉 😉 😉FranzKeymasterOctober 29, 2017 at 6:41 amPost count: 3797
YEAH! Its going to be a good week for this bus. Pat and I have big plans. Its going to be rad if we can get to Moab on the 10th. We’ll have the tent set-up, gas heater cranking, and cold beer in the fridge.
I got the top off yesterday. You can see how dry the fiberglass is. Thinking I’m going to spread a layer of fiberglass resin, Then a healthy coat of spray poly to bury and seal.
The wood structure is attached to the top with what I assume is fiberglass. One block broke free. I re-glued with fiberglass resin.FranzKeymasterOctober 29, 2017 at 6:47 amPost count: 3797

That bus out side, with no motor, no top, no interior is gonna be cruising to Moab in two weeks. I think the next 2 weeks are going to be hella expensive… 😉 😉 Oh boy Tom… 😉 😉 Only a thursday club member knows what I am talking about.. 😉 😉unkParticipantOctober 29, 2017 at 8:03 amPost count: 385

On the lift today. Brakes, beam, bearings, tires. Pat did some de-greasing and cleaning on the chassis yesterday.unkParticipantOctober 30, 2017 at 9:02 amPost count: 385

Those general grabbers are what are on my westy out back there. Driven them through some deep snow and have no complaints! Not sure what size they are exactly but you could always go look for refererence.
Not sure if you could go much bigger thoughRustabusParticipantOctober 30, 2017 at 6:41 pmPost count: 1998
