Hello everyone again,
well I am back off vacation from the North, (Upper NY State) and what an eye opener it was as far as fuel prices. The weather was not as good as I would of wanted either, cold, wet the entire time we were there. Anyhow after seeing the price of fuel when we were up there I will definitely keep my two fuel tanks. I may even use my Radiator mist tank for a spare 30 gallon supply as suggested by some on this board. When we arrive up north regular gas was ($3.09 - $3.19) per gallon and Diesel was ($3.39 per gallon) Good grief. I promised no political stuff this post, darn it!!
Well what my post is about what I saw just before we left for our trip north as we came from church, we passed a little Baptist church on the way back home and there was a 1973 Model 05 Eagle parked there. I just had to go look at it, no one around and all in church I think. Anyhow as I pulled up next to it I figured what to expect to see as I drove closer to it, but I did not expect to see it this bad. There is a group of Gospel singers traveling in that thing from SC and my god it was rusted out real bad and no way was my bus that bad. I have no idea what else to do except to do as I am now and post photo’s from my CD that I hope will make newbies more alert what to look for and again some of the present owners inspect their bus as I so often mention, most importantly Gospel traveling groups which I have seen many and everyone very, very unsafe to me.
I will not dwell on this bus but it made up my mind to take the time I just have to post more important photo’s of my bus that I hope everyone will look at.
Before you look at these photo’s I want you to realize I am including a (Disclaimer) here on this post that in no way am I saying what I have done is what any professional would do, my project is done the way I wanted to do it but in no way should be thought of as the only way to fix your bus if needed and I do not accept any responsibility for personal accidents to persons or property that may happen if you choose to do exactly as I have done. If your bus is as bad as mine was consult a professional converter that can help you make professional judgment decisions about your conversion. With that said I will now tell you where my site is again, it took me 16 solid hours to arrange this site for you, and post comments on nearly every photo. I am tired but if I prevent anyone from making a serious purchase decision it will be well worth it. I only wish with all my heart I had this information available to me 4 years ago. Anyhow here goes.
My web site to view the latest albums I have made on Webshots is: http://community.webshots.com/user/converter101
So that you do not waste time looking at things you may have already the two latest albums are:
#17 Album – 1973 Model 05 Eagle when first bought, April 2002, (File “A” of CD).
There is 15 photo’s to view.[/color](2) #18 Album – Before / After photo’s of 1973 05 Eagle, (File “Aa” of CD) There is 144 photo’s in that album.
I have chosen to post these photo’s as I feel it very important to pass on this information even If do not get paid, as long as I may prevent a serious accident one day. I do not want those that paid for my CD to think they wasted their money as they got 1200 photo’s that shows how I did everything and over 200 typed pages of text that took many months to complete.
This is not intended as a sales pitch but anyone wishing to go to my CD web site to purchase my inspection procedure for undercarriages of buses please go to: www.busconverter101.com
but again this is not to convince you to do this to make a sale. My photo posted web site on Webshots just touches on the importance of my information I am giving you now for FREE.
Good luck on your conversions, Safety doing you hobby can not be compromised, ever!!
