Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

I see your dash "mounts" are still holding up to the sun

They may not be UV safe so it would really suck in 2 months to have the gage cluster fall and break

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hey Trunt --- unless you want/need the trolly top to come down flush, you could set it up with a fixed inner raised rim about six inches (or whatever) high, then overlap that around the outside with a matching rim that could be raised giving you an extra foot or so when jacked up. Saw a very early Ford built travel coach set up that way. As I recall, the inner portion even had windows all around. Biggest difference being the Ford overlapped about three feet. Had screw jacks in the corners that raised & lowered it and a weather seal that kept nature out. Picture a vertical slide-out.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Jack,
I saw your post earlier this afternoon. I have a partial thought on it and tried to draw it out.
[img][/img]
I used these leakproof hinges on a couple of teardrop trailers I built. I tried to draw a cross section of one, but afraid my drawing looks like a psychadelic bullseye instead of a hinge. These hinges are sometimes used on coaches for water tight storage doors as well as for the galley hinge on teardrops, also used on some of the 14" x 14" trailer roof vents.
The roof can be raised using a setup similar to those on collapsible trundle beds.
I can't quite nail down anything for the short front or rear panels, but I'm sure there's an easy solution.
BTW- these hinges can be tough to run down, but they are available.

Hope maybe this will help out some

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

To all---I wish I did have a second security camera just to watch me! I took a bunch of pics during the day and at the last minute set the camera down SOMEWHERE safe ( I was about to lay it on the back bumper of my S dime but had the presence of mind to recognise that I'd drive off and loose it) so I put it somewhere ELSE while I helped unload a tow truck. I havent seen the d--- thing since. I wish I could chalk it up to old age but I've been doing that sort of thing for as long as I can remember ( which, by the way is back to 2 yrs old so don't go there! HA).
As usual the missing item will surface just after I spring for a replacement-- two pair of sun glasses, two 3/8 drive rachets, two diving snorkels, two garage door openers, you get the idea and now soon to be two cameras. That's right, go ahead, yuck it up--I deserve it!

Tango, I've seen those pics as well, and that's what I'd like, but I do need to get the entire popup to come down flush with the roof as I have no spare room clearing the garage door (can't park RV outside in OX -nard). While I will have the trolley up when I'm camped, it will need to be down while I travel and since this will restrict head room I want stuff to fold out of the way as much as posible --in case I need to head to the head while in transit. I've four really neat 12 volt linear actuators just waiting to be used for the pop up once I figure a way to apply them (vertical, horizontal via scissors???). any more ideas.

I can't find my quart bottle of Rust Mort #@!#$%&^*&%$#!@!^&*(*((*&^@#

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Thanks Allen, while I was bitching and moaning you were comming up with a clever idea! As soon as I'm in a better mood I'll study what you have proposed--what you show is what I am trying to do. Thanks, Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Might be easier to just jack up the garage. Or...got a chainsaw? Can't wait to see how this gets resolved. Having seen your work, something tells me it gonna be trick.
