it comes from a scrapped out machine from my work. it is used to lock the machine into an open or closed position. it is made by another company. i will try to post the name written on it. perhaps they can be ordered.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

some more interior progress this weekend. i screwed the wood over the rear window holes that i insulated last week, then cut some carpet tiles:






this last ones pretty dark. i need more light


alot more to do but every little bit gets me closer. i wonder if i should continue with the brown tiles all the way to the floor or use the black ones

I think the brown will tie in with the brown tiles on the lower walls better than having the black. It might look checkerboardy with the opposites like that. Just my 2 cents.

after looking at it for awhile i think you are right. also the brown carpet tiles are softer and easier to bend. it would also give me brown at the front of the bus, and brown ant the very back. i just hope i have enough brown carpet tiles left.
