Author Topic: Bus stripping done! Yeah!  (Read 2319 times)

« on: May 30, 2006, 06:19:58 PM »

Well, almost.  I now have the interior of my bus stripped out and cleaned except the very back above the engine where the evaporator was.

I already started laying tape on the floor for the floor plan last night.  I was hoping to be at this stage a week or two earlier, but life has intervened.

My original hope was to have air conditioning and generator power for a July 4th trip.  It doesn't look like this will happen since the bus still needs a week at C&J Bus Repair.  There really isn't any point in spending $800 to drive the bus to Texas if I don't have any air conditioning for camping.  I also don't have any road air so that would be a miserable trip.

Isn't great just to see plain old floor? I love that feeling, and knowing that it can now progress is a even better feeling. I look at it like this, I got plenty of time...I'm gonna do it right.

I too have no AC, the sutrak unit dont work, but the fans do on it, so it just blows the heat around...

I would like to have roof ac set up, and go from there, with either a invertor or a genset.

good luck!

Hey - Hey,

I am about at the same stage of completion.  Congrats Grin   It's nice to be able to walk from front to back without stepping over stuff or not hitting you head over the racks Cheesy


I have heard it said, "life comes at you fast".  I didn't know it would be in the shape of a bus  :-)
