Looks like your interior theme is coming together. I assume it is feeling more homey in there for you, Proconsul, and your fellow hominids?

Thanks Dan, its getting more comfortable in there all the time. My wife likes it more and more as she sees the progress, which is a definite improvement over what she thought when i first brought it home. i wish i had more time away from my job to work on the bus. i figure if i can squeeze in something however small ,each week i will eventually get it done.

Looks like you're just about ready to cook dinner on the stove Everything looks real nice. I know what you mean by wishing you had more time to work on the bus. I spent a good five years fitting in time to get the job done...you're well on your way...keep the updates comming

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

didn't get too much done this weekend as i don't feel well. i managed to screw down the tops of the balusters to the banister, i then stained the balusters and urethane them. not a perfect match but its better than before. i have some ideas for the stair hand rail as well.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I like how that turned out,I am up on the fence of how to do my railing also

After the last trip I was surprised how many people I know actually needed help getting in and out of the bus
