I'm considering it just for the luggage bays, lower engine doors back and sides, as well as partially on the front lower entrance door and drivers side panel lower door. Maybe a small bit on the front of the coach also lower area. Basically similar to where the stainless is on a stock mci.

Thank you for the information. We will definitely be there Saturday and look forward to meeting you and others.

I updated the profile information as specified. I need to take a closer look at the transmission, though it should be an Allison I am not sure exactly. When I get this information I will include it in the power train info.

Once again, I appreciate the info and really do look forward seeing and meeting everyone.

If looky loos are OK what time would be best to attend?

NAME?? -

Saturday afternoon will be when the majority of folks are all there.

Since this is a non-rally, there aren't any events planned except coffee & donuts Sat & Sun morning.

Somewhere among us there will be a campfire, where lots of smoke will be blown, probably both Fri & Sat evenings.

If the front door's open, usually there's somebody around, so feel free to knock, introduce yourself and say hello.  Lots of folk will gladly give you tours, most all we ask is that you be respectful of others.  Bring a camera to capture ideas - with permission, of course.

I'll be in A-104, arriving Friday afternoon.  I'll be glad to show you my coach, which was converted on a brand new shell.

The time spent here will not be in vain - you'll take away far more than losing productive time on your conversion.

Speaking of introductions, please take a minute to update your forum profile info to something similar to mine.  At least a first name, home-base city/state, plus year, make, model and powertrain of your coach.  That will help us help you with parts and service sources, as well as possibly finding a fellow busnut nearby! Simply click on the "Profile" tab above, then, in the LH menu, click on Forum Information and follow the prompts.

See you Saturday??

FWIW & HTH. . .

One more thought.

If looky loos are OK what time would be best to attend? We only have the weekends to work on our bus so we try and maximize the daylight with bus work. Of course, we will work around any times that are best. As I have never attended something like this I don't know if timing is really an issue or not.

Thank You

Interesting, I don't recall anyone doing quilted stainless on a coach...

Back doors of semi-trailers...


happy coaching!

That sounds great.... because the location is very close to me!

I am actually storing and working on my bus right around the corner in La Verne. Is it OK to have a looky loo come by to meet some of you and see what has been done on some of the coach's in person?

It would be my girlfriend and I coming and we would not want to be a hinderance. The timing is perfect because we are just finishing up our flooring and will be looking to do a roof raise/interior work in the coming months, it would be invaluable for us to see examples in person.
Please let me know if inquisitive eyes and ears are welcome (I would bring the bus but it wouldn't be worth it to see it all gutted out!).

Hello all.

My question is about the bus breaker box in the front storage bay. It has the A/C breaker etc in there. There is also the "Main Breaker".

I would like to take the excess guts out of the box as I removed the OTR components. I have left the drivers heater core and would like to potentially utilize that.

Does anyone know what I can and cannot take out of the breaker box? I was assuming that the "Main Breaker" is for the A/C system only but I feel that is a bad assumption which is why I have done nothing to it. It would be great to clean up excess wiring and tidy everything up before connecting to the batteries again.

Any info around this would be great. Haven't quite been able to narrow it done through use of the manual.

Thanks a ton in advance!

I am selling the windows off of my bus. If you are interested in any of them let me know. I am in Southern California which may be an issue if you are not close.

Anyhow, if you are interested just let me know. Happy to discuss further with you.

At the end of the day does it matter whether you use aluminum or galvanized sheets for the skin on the side?

I am guessing the galvanized sheet would be a whole heck of a lot cheaper than using the aluminum... at the cost of a little bit of weight. Just wondering if it is worth pursuing to save some cash when I go to skin the sides.

Jakes work very well on my 8V-71 (Don Fairchild adjusted them). My V730 will lockup in 1st gear if you pull the gearshift lever down to first and keep your foot at least an inch up from flooring the gas pedal. Very nice for slow driving in the mountains. Good Luck, TomC
