Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hey Jack --- thought you might enjoy it but can't recall just where I came across it. Cool idea though. Just shows what can be done when the barriers of conventional thinking are tossed aside.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All, I played with the bus all day today and made some progress on the fuel filler for the new gas tank I installed for the genny. I had saved the original gas filler from my '71 Suburban when I put an electric release gas door on it. The filler tube ended up on my TOAD and now the sheet metal part is on the bus (I found a replacement filler pipe in the local Pick-A-Part from a '73 Chevy PU). I like

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Just in case someone is looking at this for ideas--an easier solution for a gas cap--one off a CJ Jeep. Its a plastic piece that recesses in with the filler neck at a good angle. You only need to cut a square(ish) hole. I think I had mine done+ installed in 10 minutes.

Sdwarf36, I had to chuckle, the CJ thing would work great but if someone wants to get his rig done and down the road, God help him if he is looking for quick ideas on my build! Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Nice, clean installation. I like the way you think "outside the box."

I know you've done a TON of work on your rig already, but it's nice to see some shiny new bits going in.
