    I’ve been such a slacker compared to everything going on at KCW, but I got the bus “spot” painted, ended up chasing all the little rust spots down the sides and ended up calling it and just cut it off below the belt line. Shoulda done more but spring is here and I need to get it sound deadened, insulated, and back together for some camping.
    I did order some wheels, and a Baja kit, also bought a ecotec, Kennedy adapter, and engine wire harness for the Baja…gotta figure out the suspension stuff, but hope to slam that all together once the bus is finished up…. Miss you guys.

    Maybe it’s in the water Jason. I have been thinking about the same thing since Christmas…If I could sell the dc for enough, I could pay off the house and be debt free…or wait 5 more years…. it’s a tough decision, but whatever you choose, I’m sure it will be what’s best for you and your family.

    Update… been a rough month or so for us, my grandma (last of my real family) passed 11/10 and thankfully we were able to get back to see her before she passed and then we had to take care of her affairs, then 12/8 we were rear ended in my truck/trailer by a drunk driver while we were moving a purchased recumbent exercise elliptical for the mother in law. The truck,trailer, and elliptical are all a total loss and dealing with stupid insurance still with that. Rodney and I are ok, however Leeann suffers from whiplash and a slight concussion from it and is doing pt and getting better each day.

    Thanks JJ for the shirt, it definitely arrived at the perfect time 67A1B721-953A-489E-92A1-91F6BA950ADA

    I spent as much time as I could between Christmas and New Years on my vacation and got most of the rust cut out and new tacked in, just gotta burn it all in and get it bodyworked and painted.

    Really Glad to hear things are looking better. Can’t wait to be behind my wheel again after some rust repairs 😁…. one thought, if you don’t have a oil thermostat, oil may be too cold running thru the cooler 100% and the engine may be running too cold now in the colder weather to produce heat. You want the oil temps 180-210°. I’m running a mocal thermostat sandwich plate, easy to install if already being already full flowed and cooler in place. 6FB1CEA4-4683-4B13-A4E9-8D6853324155

    Crusty along the edges. Does it need cargo floor sections? Bottom 6” on a bus always need love.

    yea I “patched” the floor with license plates and 3m 8115 eight or so years ago when I put the bus together. It seems to have held up but the rest has been getting worse. Gonna do both rockers, jack points, outriggers, B and C pillars, outer floors, lower inner/outer cargo doors, doglegs, front floors, and the lower inner/outer nose. Time to show it some love.

    Gutted my bus last weekend, gonna tackle the lower rust in it as it’s way past due but had some sweet rocker trim that covered it up so it didn’t look so bad… After the camping supplies and kit was removed I think the rear raised up 2”. I have another set of torsions to put in as I think my current ones are weak and are twisting, I’ve reindexed the rear 3 times over the past couple years and it keeps sagging in the rear.

    Ditch the heavy heater boxes and use the Autonomous cabin diesel air heater Eberspacher Airtronic D4 12V with installation kit and digital controller Easy Start Select 8 hours on less than a gallon of fuel . Alternative heat is key.. Add an extra battery and battery isolator for the max output. Stay well glad your getting better and moving around take care.

    seems to be the answer I am looking for huh… I am still a little hung up on defrost though… Hey Wayner, are you running empty 1 1/2’s, or empty 1 5/8’s?? I’d like to stick with the 1 1/2 header I already have… But not if it isn’t gonna be enough.. I need to do some research.. but why does everyone push the diesel heater over the gas?? Seems smart to stick with one fuel type? install a bay tank, that gives me like 5 more gallons!!! 😎

    im running the empty 1.5” and both heater boxes feed the center tube and force it all up front. The heat is “warm” and more than enough warm air to keep the windshield clear. The diesel heater is very efficient and puts out tons of heat with very little current draw once glow plug cycle has completed for initial fire up. Yes, you need a extra fuel can for diesel, I have a 2 gallon can and it’s more fuel than I’ve ever needed on a trip. I also have a bay tank to go the extra mile and used to have a Stewart Warner heater, it didn’t fit with the dual carb setup. I think the diesel trumps the heat output/efficiency and its like $120 for a brand new unit. After that adding the afterburner controller a guy makes in Australia adds to the features and functions of the diesel heater making it something that was a game changer for the cold weather camping. First time I used the heater with the uta guys in the west desert, night temps dropped to 7° And I was nice and toasty all night while everyone else froze using the little buddy heaters…even their bread and water had froze. After that trip everyone was drinking the diesel heater koolaid. They are truly awesome and one of the things I’ve added and love the most…something everyone wanting to winter camp should have.
