Re: 1990 International-14" Roof Lift.

Looks good! What are you planning on doing for windows? Also, I'd agree with a previous poster on leaving that bathroom sink out. We had one in our travel trailer. All we ever did there was brush our teeth. It could just as easily be done at the kitchen sink. I wouldn't use a big huge kitchen sink either. It's a pain in the ass to wash dishes when you're camping. Just add some more plastic plates into the environment!

Re: 1990 International-14" Roof Lift.

Yes, I may leave the bathroom sink out due to simplicity of plumbing. I knew when I laid out that floor plan it was rough and would be subject to change. I have already discovered that I will need to transpose the shower and toilet because it will be a bit easier to plumb.

I am driving to Eugene tomorrow to find 3 windows for the drivers side. The past few days I have been skinning the passenger side. It is nowhere near complete yet, I haven't shimmed out the sheet metal, weathered it in or quieted it for sound/vibration. I just have it cut and hung in place with a few screws. My goal is to have the entire bus weather tight by Halloween, that is usually about when the winter weather hits.

Re: 1990 International-14" Roof Lift.

Looking great! You and Elliott need to team up and do roof-raisings, you guys seem to have a knack at making it look so-o-o-o easy to do, and it would make it easier for us less skilled folks to keep up with the Jones's (and Naess's, and Abbotts's)! Maybe even start a MBoA ("Monobrow Busses of America") campaign!

Re: 1990 International-14" Roof Lift.

WOOT!!! I just finished hanging the last piece of exterior sheet metal! I still need a few days to get everything fastened and weather tight as I only have a hundred or so screws holding the sheets on. Drilling, screwing, riveting and caulking to follow for the next few days. Then re-hang the mirrors, put the drivers seat back in, finish hooking the wiring back up and get the engine ready for winter. I should have new pictures up in about a week!



Picture from about a week ago.

Re: 1990 International-14" Roof Lift.

You certainly impress me, Abbott. Talk about just jumping right in! Did you find any of those "special" welds that took so many of those Carpenters out of use as you were exploring those roof panels?

Re: 1990 International-14" Roof Lift.

Nice! My Carpenter is one of those that supposedly had the faulty roof welds. I've had my ceiling panels off and haven't seen anything that looked bad. I don't plan on rolling my bus over anytime soon, but you never know.
