When I picked up my bus on the west coast and drove it to the east coast with no cup holders, I said it would be the first thing I put in it when I get home. Simple yet extremely important. ��

Same thing for me; I ended up spilling several beers during my drive from CA back to MD.

totallty love the way that dash is shaping up!! i want that steering wheel!!!!! I have wanted to replace the wheel in my bus for a longtime.. when I go to order one there are all kinds of mounting options.. how do you determine what your mounting is when you buy one?



cup-holders.. ive gone through a couple iterations.. nothing built in.. i want to be able to take the cup holder inside and clean it easily.. they get nasty after awhile..



my DEV bus..

The progress looks good, the binnacle looks good and the cup holders look good

There were cuphoders, weren't there?

I am right behind you in making progress. Just set up a lifetime want of a TIG so now the new dash support bracketry and new electrical distribution panel can be fabricated.

Keep going!

I am slightly embarrassed to report that my steering wheel is a ruse. It's a $30 cover from Amazon. The cupholders in my console will be removable as well. Your dashboards look like aircraft cockpits; I dig the displays.

Everybody loves the binnacle (me too). Congrats on the TIG setup; one skill (of many) I wish I had...

I was going to ask you where you got your steering wheel until I looked closer and noticed that it's just a cover that's probably way cheaper than the steering wheel, does look good though.

So I guess I don't need that EPM Override dash switch. A buzzer and a time delay relay, but no EPM. I need to get smart on this drivetrain...
